Thunder Ridge Nature Arena
On Sep. 30, 2022, country music superstar Garth Brooks christened the Thunder Ridge Nature Arena with the first of three sold-out concerts.
Located about 15 minutes south of Branson, MO, we say “about” because the first night of the concert brought traffic issues for many fans.
Drivers experienced traffic delays, waiting for hours, some not even making it into the show.
We’re sure the local elected officials will take care of 1900s infrastructure for a venue designed for the 2020s crowds.
Close to the Missouri and Arkansas state line, the newly expanded Thunder Ridge Nature Arena is a major natural amphitheater that overlooks Table Rock Lake and the Boston Mountains in Arkansas.
All of the Thunder Ridge land has been set aside in a non-profit foundation, so proceeds go to enhance Thunder Ridge and support conservation.
However, we suspect county commissioners will find a way to raise taxes to increase road capacity for combustion engine vehicles. Which is the antithesis of conservation in a region of America abundant with amazing beauty. We doubt many stakeholders there care. Too bad,
The 20,000-seat Thunder Ridge Nature Arena is now open.
