If you are looking for an all-inclusive day of fun, then look no further than Branson's IMAX Entertainment Complex. Spend your day in one lovely location, shopping, eating, catching a live show and even watching a movie on their amazing IMAX screen. This prime location is perfect for all ages and every member of your family.
Who doesn't love to shop? Well, my husband but he comes along for the ride anyway. If you are looking for great jewelry, a fun t-shirt or even a collectors clock, you've come to the right place. I guarantee you will find something that you weren't looking for too. I bought Bennett the cutest First Christmas pajama set while I was there. It was just too adorable to pass up. Make time to stop in these stores when visiting the Entertainment Complex.
The Shadow Box
Legacy & Legend Gifts
Ozark Mountain Time Clock
This definitely was the most amazing IMAX theater I have ever been in. We viewed Rocky Mountain Express which showcased the history of he nation's first transcontinental railway accompanies a steam-train ride through the Canadian Rockies. The pictures are so crisp and clear, you feel like you are actually IN the movie. The sound quality is impeccable.
If you want to watch a movie that you would find in traditional theaters, they have that too! So many options on one AMAZING screen!
Hungry? You've got options!
McFarlain's Family Restaurant
Come hungry and leave happy. McFarlain's Family Restaurant has a wonderful menu with plenty of options. It reminds me of good ole cookin' my grandma would make stocked full of flavor. Just look at this menu! Also, order the sweet potato fries with special dipping sauce. Delish!
If you are looking to have a little fun, ask for one of the round tables for a special experience. I didn't know this when I visited and sat at a round table. The table is actually on hydraulics and slowly rises. My food was level with my stomach and a little while later it was at my chin. Ha! Someone at our table finally said, “Is it just me, or is this table rising?” People around us knew that this was a “magic” table and had been watching us. I'm sure they got a kick out of our reactions. It was really fun.
Also, save room for dessert. The cobbler is worth getting overly full for.
Montanna Mike's isn't actually in the IMAX Entertainment Complex but it is owned by the company so it boasts their reputation for greatness. Just a few blocks away, you will find this family restraunt option a good one when visiting Branson. Known for its steaks and hamburgers, Montanna Mike's offers a flavorful menu for lunch and dinner. I opted for a lighter lunch and went with a salad and it hit the spot. So did their onion rings, the perfect appetizer! Just like McFarlain's, their cobbler was the perfect ending to a great meal. I mean, you can't skip dessert on vacation, right?!
If you are visiting Branson, make sure to add the IMAX Entertainment Complex in your list of stops. Come shop, dine and see a movie. All makings of the perfect afternoon. During Christmas, the have a beautiful, huge Christmas tree so make sure you bring your camera because it's the perfect photo opp. Happy travels!
