Going to Marriott Willow Ridge with my 15 yr old son and his friend for spring break in a week (got an XYZ so why not?) I have never been there so not sure what would be interesting for teenagers. We will visit Silver City which opens that week. I was also thinking about doing the Branson Scenic Railway. Any suggestions? Any shows that would interest teenagers? Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.
Does Willow Ridge have a basketball court? I know they would play basketball for hours ;)

Willow Ridge Lodge

Willow Ridge Lodge has the following:
1/2 court basketball, indoor pool, indoor whirlpool, excellent workout room, very nice pool table, ping pong table, video games, foosball, shuffleboard, giant screen Wii. All on property. The resort lost power but sustained no damage from recdent storms.
There is Branson Landing (some recent storm damage) with Bass Proshop.
Some of the theatres were damaged but I'm not sure how interested your teenagers would be in the shows anyway.

I'll lay money down that the funnest thing you could do is to rent a ski boat and go skiing and/or tubing on Table Rock lake and spend a day there. Or rent them a jet ski. Or rent some canoes/kayaks and float on the James River or go further south to the Buffalo River. That'll be the stuff they'll remember.

Seriously, I personally don't visit Branson for the shows and tourist traps. I love the outdoor stuff in the area though.
