Big Texan Starlight Ranch gets ready for grand opening
AMARILLO, Texas (KVII) —
A new outdoor park promises to bring more entertainment to Amarillo. The owners of the Big Texan Steak Ranch are ready to open their latest development, Starlight Ranch, which they hope will become a major summer hot spot.
"Lots of summer music, dancing under the stars, getting lost in the maze, zip-lining, it's family fun for all ages," said Bobby Lee, Starlight Ranch co-owner.
The gates of Starlight Ranch will open to the public on Friday and will be open everyday during the summer. The seasonal venue boasts a zip line, a 10,000 square foot maze, a performance stage, dance floor, extensive seating, a children's play area and an oversized bar.
Lee said they have big plans in store for the outdoor park. They hope to expand the area further by adding more zip line towers and a miniature golf course.
One of the main attractions is the zip line, providing views over the venue and the city. It takes over 100 steps to reach the top of the tower and the Starlight Ranch zip line co-owner assured that the 80 foot tower is one hundred percent safe.
"You still get the thrill, you still get the enjoyment of the high adventure, but knowing that you are 100% safe," Curtis Young noted.
The ranch can also be rented out got private events and ceremonies.
