2018 Star Gazing

If you have been to the Flying W Ranch at night you are well aware of how awesome the night sky can be in the Flint Hills. We are offering six nights in 2018 to celebrate this natural display.

With the aid of an advanced, computerized telescope, you will be taken on a tour of the heavens, pointing out the constellations, the planets, their moons, galaxies, and dying stars. Man-made satellites such as the International Space Station and Hubble Space Telescope are easy to locate if they orbit overhead. 

To accompany this exceptional star gazing in one of the best spots in Kansas will be supper, a ride, and additional entertainment.

You have two choices for your ride:

  • A wagon ride
  • A horseback ride

The rides will not be together (i.e. horseback and wagon will go their separate ways) so plan accordingly if your party will be doing both.


Star Gazing and Wagon Ride: $100/per person + applicable tax

Star Gazing and Horseback Ride: $210/per person+ applicable tax
