Branson, MO: Fritz's Family Adventures

After breakfast at the hotel, we headed straight over to Fritz's Adventure. We'd never heard of this attraction before, but it was recommended by several friends.

It turned out to be a great choice for us! We had such a blast here running, climbing, and exploring. The underground tunnels gave me a moment of sheer panic, but otherwise we all had a blast.

Ben and Luke scaled this wall pretty easily. Both were able to make it to the top in good time. I'm fairly certain Ben is part mountain goat. Luke did really well, too. He was a bit slower, but he still made it up in good time.

I didn't fare so well.

Heights aren't my favorite so I'm not sure why I decided to attempt this right off the bat, but Ben and Luke made it look downright easy. Since I'm shorter, it's more arm work for me and I have very little upper body strength. I got to this point and had to come down. I did end up climbing one of the poles. That still got my heart racing because of the height and sway, but it wasn't too physically challenging. Ben went on to do the even harder course to the right of this picture and he did it well!

We were worn out after a while so we did some shopping at the outlet mall. Then we had lunch and a nap. Our tickets to Fritz's were good for the entire day so we went back once we were refreshed.

The entire family had a blast on the ropes course. Gabe initially didn't want to do it, but he talked himself into it. He was cautious, but he did well. 

The cool thing about this ropes course is that you're locked into a track the entire time so there's no possibility of forgetting to secure your safeties or making a mistake. There are a whopping 5 levels for all ages and abilities, too! Little ones can join in without adults and teens feeling bored.

I was amazed at how Gabe's confidence grew. He eventually just went off and did his own thing and went on the zipline portion several times. I was so proud of him. He doesn't like heights at all and he's small and weak for his age. It was an enormous challenge for him.

Finally we were exhausted. Too tired to even eat, we headed back to the hotel to watch TV and relax before bedtime. It had been such a fun and challenging day! I'd say we more than got our money's worth at Fritz's Adventures and will definitely be returning in the future!

What you need to know:

Tickets are good for the entire day and you can come and go as you like so plan to get there early and make the most of it!

They really tried to provide something for all ages, but there are some weight/height restrictions on certain attractions so look into that before heading out.

There is a small cafe and a souvenir shop. Lockers are also available.

Wear comfortable clothes and tennis shoes! Unless you're sitting on the sidelines, you'll be climbing, crawling, and exploring the entire time!

Remember that there are no timed passes which can be both good and bad. If it's a busy day you might spend a lot of time waiting around!
