Titanic Attraction to Appear in Branson

DECEMBER 8, 2004 - Posted at 4:05 p.m. CST

 

BRANSON, MO - The legacy of the ill-fated ocean liner Titanic will continue in Branson.

Titanic aficionado John Joslyn of Los Angeles announced plans yesterday for "Titanic: The Legend Continues."

The interactive, walkthrough attraction will be built at the corner of Missouri highways 76 and 165.

It's scheduled to open next summer.  It will house more than 400 artififacts from the Titanic, which sank in 1912 after striking an iceberg in the Atlantic Ocean on its maiden voyage from South Hampton to New York.

Items include deck chairs, jewelry, dinnerware, life jackets, menus and personal letters.

Branson officials welcome the attraction.  They say it could attract new and younger visitors to the southwest Missouri resort town.  Branson draws about seven million visitors per year.
