Tens of thousands fright fans flock to the Haunted River Float in south-central Missouri

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Tens of thousands fright fans flock to the Haunted River Float in south-central Missouri

Waynesville, MO- September 7, 2017

Haunted River Float organizer Glen Clark is thrilled to announce that Haunted River Float trips continue to scare up a great time at their new location in Pulaski County, Missouri. After Spring flooding in late April devastated the original location at Lay Z Days Canoes and Camping on the Big Piney River near Saint Robert, Clark quickly teamed up with the staff at Ruby’s Landing on the Gasconade River near Waynesville, Missouri. Together the Haunted River Float staff and the Ruby’s Landing team continue to offer Missouri’s only river based haunted attraction- an experience like no other in the Show Me State.

Haunted River Float participants raft down the Gasconade River after nightfall drapes the water in darkness. The setting can be frightening in its own right- but a team of dedicated actors amp up the adrenaline with a series of scary scenarios that play out in the water alongside and near your raft. You are almost guaranteed to scream at least once during your nearly hour long water adventure.

Adding to the uniqueness of the Haunted River Float is the hayride to the river put-in location. After disembarking the raft fright fans can navigate the corn maze and brave the haunted house. One night of primitive camping at Ruby’s Landing is included in the $25 admission price.

Are you brave enough to conquer Missouri’s ONLY Haunted River Float?

Haunted River Float was first organized in 2013 and operated at Lay Z Days Canoes and Camping through 2016. In 2017 the event was moved to Ruby’s Landing located at 22472 Restful Lane, Waynesville, Missouri. The event has expanded each year since its premiere and continues to draw multitudes of Halloweniacs for a thrill like no other in Missouri. Haunted River Floats are offered every Friday and Saturday during September.

Big BAM (Bicycle Across Missouri) Announces 2018 Ride on Missouri’s Historic Route 66

Boonville, MO – Missouri Life magazine has announced the fourth annual Big BAM (Bicycle Across Missouri) which will travel along Missouri’s historic Route 66 from Joplin to Eureka. This six-day event will begin on June 17 with a pre-ride party and festival at Schifferdecker Park in Joplin featuring live music. The 304 mile ride begins on June 18 and ends on June 22 in Eureka.

Four additional overnight towns will host the ride and they include Willard, Lebanon, Waynesville and Cuba. Each town will open their city parks to welcome hundreds of Big BAM participants and anyone who wants to attend. They will find free live music and entertainment from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the event area in each overnight town. The public is invited and encouraged to come enjoy the music and festivities.

Big BAM works with local authorities all along the route to help create a safe and fun event. Big BAM places water and rest stations every 10 to 12 miles. “We also encourage people along the route to set up refreshment stands if they wish and to cheer on the riders,” says Big BAM executive director Greg Wood, who is also publisher of Missouri Life magazine. “We have riders coming in from all over the U.S. and many other countries. For some, this will be their first time in Missouri. We hope all the towns along the route will be joining in on the fun and welcoming Big BAM riders.”

This is the fourth year for the event and the first time Big BAM has been on a route in the southern half of the state. “We are very excited to have the 2018 route on Missouri’s historic Route 66,” says Wood. “This will get a lot of attention nationally and internationally.”

Information and registration for the ride can be found on www.bigbamride.com. The route map for the 2018 ride and photos of the 2017 ride can be found there as well as all the details.
