    Lots of Fun, but Long Wait Times for Flyride
    First time visit for the holidays and we decided to get the holiday package. You get both flyrides, and the museum for the whole day. They paged us via text 15 min before the ride. The time you are scheduled it NOT when the ride STARTS. It's when you get in line. You then wait another 15 min. If you queue like we did, you're gonna wait 30 min. This was not explained and led to super unhappy kids. Of course we also had to tolerate all the jerks in line who voiced their opinion. We would totally come again, but we're not doing Flyride. It was just a time sucker. All in, we stayed for almost five hours.
    Thank you for visiting! We apologize for any inconvenience. The holidays do bring larger crowds. We are really happy to hear you enjoyed the exhibits.

    Needs management
    We actually went twice. The first time we did the whole package and we had to ask for an attendant on 2 items that needed someone to set them up we went again just for the games. $100.00 but thought it would be worth it if we could play a lot. We again experienced one of the virtual games being down. One of them the strap for the headset was broken amd that was already broke on our first visit and not repaired. At the virtual plank game again no attendant so had to find someone again. They said they would send someone over. We waited 30 minutes amd still no one. We finally left and on the way out I asked someone about it and was told they would get Someone there when they could. We will Not go back

    Flyride was awesome
    If you do nothing else in here, at least do this, it is worth it. As for the rest of the place, half of the games don't work and some of the ones that do, you really have no control over. Some of the activities were closed, I understand that things break down, but you should probably work on getting them fixed so I get my monies worth on a ticket I paid for to do everything in the place.
    Thank you for visiting! We are glad you enjoyed FlyRide! We would like to learn more about the rest of your experience and invite you to contact our Operations Manager at 417-337-9333.

More than 50% of the exhibits didn't work. We spent 30 min in the whole thing just walking through because so much wasnt working. The FlyRide was fun but it was only 15 min of.the entire visit so it's really not worth stopping to do that when there are so many other options of things to do in Branson. We can't in good conscience recommend anyone spending the money to go. It was very disappointing.

I expect we were probably at the older end of the range that this place will appeal to. Much of the content was nostalgic for us - video games from our childhood but playable using modern tech. It was fun and interesting. Plenty of games and interactive exhibits to hold our attention. The FlyRide experience was good and worth the add-on price. I don't believe I'd pay the solo price for just FlyRide - do the combo or nothing would be my advice.

Beyond the lens was not good at all. Based on that alone I’d give it 1 star but we thought the fly ride was kind of neat so I gave them an extra star for that. We got our tickets from the purple building which includes the fly ride so it’s cheaper if you get them through there (Branson 2 for 1 tickets). I honestly would not recommend beyond the lens attraction. It took us 30 mins to go through it and it was boring. A few photo ops, a few arcade games, a few museum exhibits on jfk, Michael Jackson and princess Diana (which doesn’t entertain kids at all). The only hi light was the fly ride- It was pretty neat. I think if you are looking for cool photo ops you’d be better off going to the Hollywood wax museum.

Both attractions were worth every penny spent. The giant size retro video games were the best. Will highly recommend to any one I know going to Branson.

Not worth the money. Roughly $150 (family of four) to play a few games and see a few attractions. Many of the interactive attractions didn't work. Traveled with a 10 and 13 year old. We were over the entire place within a half an hour. Spend your money elsewhere. For another hundred dollars for the family, you can go to Silver Dollar City for an entire day!

Had a *decent* time. FlyRide was impressive, but frustrating. BTL was *barely* worth it. Neat idea, but too many of attractions were out of order and they were grossly understaffed. Don't need to pay extra for FlipZone.

Got there early and it was worth going at opening time! The later in the day, the busier it got. So many things to do and see! We have 2 teen boys and they both loved it! Definitely recommend and will return! From carnival style games to Bigfoot info, scavenger hunt, very small escape room and the flight, we enjoyed it all!

This place is a hidden gem. It offers fun for all ages of family members. You can pose for selfies, play physical games, virtual games, console games, and arcade games. There are interactive virtual reality games ranging from sitting to walking around with googles on. You can be the president. Make sure to do the flying simulator over America as it was awesome! No need to pay an extra $4 for the Trampoline area as the main area is at least 2-hours of fun if you really participate.

This was very interesting ride. We flew over many types of scenery . One part we were even lightly sprayed with water as we went over a body of water. I'd recommend this for the young and old.

Please, don’t waste your precious vacation moments. This is place is terrible… even when you buy online they won’t give you a time. When you get there, you have to wait for hours…. Then the machine breaks… and the employees are hateful.
The ride might be amazing… but after coming 3 times, we never made it there. I understand machines break.. but the rudeness is uncalled for.
Just trust me and don’t waste your time! There are so many better things to do in Branson!
