The Paddlewheel, Main Street Lake Cruises and the entire Main Street Marina family want to thank all of you for supporting us during this difficult time, and also coming together to support the Branson business community at large.
As always, our number one priority is the health, safety and happiness of our guests, employees and their families. With that in mind, we’ve decided to temporarily suspend all operations now through May 18 in order to join our fellow citizens and Branson businesses in the effort to fight the spread of the Covid-19 virus.
This decision was made carefully, as a work family, after much internal discussion with management, staff and after consulting with the appropriate local experts and authorities.
Again, our number one priority is your health and happiness. To us, you’re more than just patrons, you’re friends and family. We look forward to seeing all your smiling faces again as soon as this is all over. Until then, stay safe, wash those hands, and don’t lose that #LakeAttitude #YouShouldbeHereJustNotRightNow #TheDockWillRockAgain
The sun is about to rise on a new season. It’s still a little chilly outside but things are getting ready to heat up at Main Street Marina! In this post, we are going to talk about a couple of those items so you can get as excited as we are about them.
Bring your family and friends aboard The Landing Princess, our 100-foot luxury yacht for an amazing dinner made for you special by our crew. For an hour and a half, you will enjoy the view of your surroundings while you dine and take advantage of the cash bar on each level of our boat. Our professional and friendly staff is there to give you a great experience each time we cast off on this cruise.
Every afternoon we will also have a sightseeing excursion aboard our vintage style paddleboat, The Lake Queen. This cruise is available with or without lunch and features a guided tour of Lake Taneycomo and the stories that are part of its history. For an hour and a half you can take in the secrets of Lake Taneycomo told to you by one of our Captains. The Queen features a cash bar with anything you could probably want right at your fingertips.
This year we also have a special value for those of you that come with your kids. For every adult ticket purchased a child (from ages 4 to 12) in your immediate family will only cost $1. If you buy an adult lunch, a kid’s lunch will only be $5. Book your tickets online or call our reservation line at 417-239-3980. We also have gift certificates available as well! This makes the perfect gift.
Local Filmmakers Choose The Paddlewheel and Main Street Lake Cruises
There is a short film called “Pray They Stand Down” being filmed in the Ozarks and they have chosen The Paddlewheel as one of their scene locations. This movie will shine a powerful light on the effects PTSD has on our veterans. Damian Costello, with Costello Films, is teaming up with Tristin Ray and Clayton Cooper, of Stingray films for this all local project.
Carolyn Sires, who represents Educated Canines Assisting with Disabilities (ECAD), was on hand with her service dogs Tuna and Chloe. These puppies will be involved with this movie as well. She chose to work with “Pray They Stand Down” because of the way the script portrays the effects of PTSD and gives a glimpse of the toll Post-Traumatic Stree Disorder plays on our American veterans. Ms. Sires was most recently involved in promoting the movie “To Be of Service” airing on Netflix, and is an important advocate for the PAWS act (Puppies Assisting Wounded Soldiers). Several ECAD puppies are a part of the movie.
The movie will be entirely filmed in the Ozarks and feature local actors. This film will be something that the area can certainly be proud of. We are excited to be involved with them. You can find out more about the film at R33LFILM.COM.
These are just a couple of great things happening at Main Street Marina! We look forward to seeing you on the dock!
January 2nd marked the beginning of the Karaoke contest at The Paddlewheel on Main Street Marina and it was a great time! We want to get the word out there because there is a big prize to be had and anyone could win! That’s right, there is a $500 prize as well as a special belt made for the occasion! Come out and be a part of the fun and get into the contest! Don’t forget about the amazing food and drinks at The Paddlewheel! Bear Davis, with Kavebear Karaoke, will be runnin’ the show. So, you know it will be a great time!
This contest will run every Thursday from 7 -10 PM with the final night being the 13th of February. Scoring throughout the event is cumulative from each night. So, the more nights you attend and participate the more scoring chances you have. The only requirement is that you spend at least $10 at The Paddlewheel each night you perform.
Scoring and Judging of the Karaoke Contest
There will be different guest judges each Thursday. You never know when a talent scout will be roaming around on a Thursday night. This could be your big chance.
There are 5 categories that the judges will use to accumulate points; with a possible total of 75 points each week. The categories include singing, as well as preparation topics. So, it’s not just about how you sound. The best thing to remember is that this isn’t a singing competition as much as it is a Karaoke competition. Bring that “A Game” and prepare to let your inner star SHINE!
It’s All About Fun at This Karaoke Contest
We are all out to have a great time. Yes, there are prizes involved, but that shouldn’t get in the way of having a great time with AWESOME people! It’s all in good fun! There are many people with many different talent levels and tastes that hit the Karaoke stage at The Paddlewheel.
We look forward to seeing you on Thursday nights. If you have any questions please get a hold of Bear Davis on Facebook and he will be happy to answer those questions. Come out and pick up the mic and be a star! It’s always a great time at Rock The Dock at The Paddlewheel!

We have many different options, all in one place, to make that happen so you don’t have to string your experience out over several locations.

In addition, Main Street Event Center is also located within walking distance to The Branson Landing and their gigantic shopping complex on Lake Taneycomo. So, it’s easy to take a break and squeeze in some much needed shopping therapy.
We are also in close proximity to the Hilton and Downtown Branson. More shopping and dining options are available there. We have it all right there for you.
We have many options for you to choose from when planning your event. Team building activites have become an essential part of any cohesive staff. Throwing axes has become more popular in the last year and we can get you plugged into that action with Landing Axes, right here on Main Street Marina. There are also steel tipped darts as well in out group friendly World Axe Throwing League venue. Nothing wrong with a little fun competition.
We can also get you out on the water with one of our Sightseeing or Dinner Charters with Main Street Lake Cruises. If you would rather get out on Lake Taneycomo by yourselves, ask our staff about our water sport rentals. There is no better way to create a cohesive team, or group of friends, than with something a little different to get people doing something fun together.
