Upgrades include a private helicopter ride or limousine transport from Dallas directly to the ranch.
Guests who opt for the helicopter upgrade will see the same sweeping aerial vantage point made famous in the series’ opening credits as they approach Southfork Ranch’s 357-acre expanse.
“We created this experience to give ‘Dallas’ fans—or any fan of American pop culture and Texas hospitality—an unforgettable excursion to the ranch,” explained Janna Timm, acting general manager, Southfork Ranch. “They’ll really be able to put themselves in J.R.’s boots from the moment they board the private helicopter in Dallas, until the very last bite of steak and sip of wine served to them in the mansion’s dining room.”
