where guests board a tram for the ride through the grounds on the way to the famous Ewing
Mansion. Along the way stories from the ranch's history are shared and once inside the mansion,
visitors relive memories from the 13 years (356 episodes) of the original series plus it's spin-offs.

The most famous locations inside the mansion where the intrigue plays out include the dining room
(home of many evening plot twists) and the outdoor pool-side breakfast table (where the stage was
set for the days double-dealing to expand the oil empire).
