The attraction will feature two pre-shows, a 28-seat flying theater with a massive movie screen, and can accommodate 84 guests every 25 minutes.

Outdoor Adventures in South Lake Tahoe

With an average 300 days of sunshine each and every year, South Lake Tahoe offers all-year round activities. While South Lake Tahoe is famous for its world-class skiing in the winter (and there has been no shortage of snow this season), summer promises legendary, heart-pounding downhill single track and bike paths for social spins. Hike your heart out, get your bootie in a boat or to a beach. Tahoe South has been designated as a Bike Friendly Community, so bike paths for the social spin are plentiful. For the truly ambitious, you can link trails and ride seven summits in one day. For those who prefer hiking, Lake Tahoe has trails for all levels of endurance. Hike up glacier-carved granite slopes, find hidden waterfalls, and discover alpine meadows painted with wildflowers or spend a week backpacking through Desolation Wilderness, or just go day tripping with a picnic.


Find Over 80 Tourism Contacts in Two Seconds

Travel trade buyers know that it can take a while (on average 5-6 minutes) to navigate through the websites of CVBs to find the contact details of tourism sales teams. In stark contrast to this, on TourOperatorLand, users will find destination tourism contacts in less than two seconds. The team at TourOperatorLand researched all of the partner destination websites to find up-to-date tourism contacts making it easy for you. So all that is needed is for you to register, then, simply pick a destination and you will see the tourism sales contacts right there.
