As an accident-prone Robinson Crusoe tries to adapt to his new life as a castaway, the island’s animals are equally astonished to find this strange creature washed up on their shores. Crusoe meets an optimistic parrot named Tuesday; Carmelo the coolly sophisticated chameleon; and Scrubby the lazy goat. Joining the hilarious antics are Rosie the tapir; a teenage porcupine Epi and his pangolin buddy Pango; and an adorable kingfisher named Kiki. When some unwelcome visitors appear, the unlikely new friends scramble to defend their island paradise.

The Horizon Ranch Flint Hills Immersive Experience Theater is named in recognition of Marty Vanier and Bob Krause. Their love of the tallgrass prairie and a deep appreciation for its role in shaping Kansas values and underpinning a significant sector of our agricultural history led them to want to encourage others to care as well. The couple felt a responsibility to be good stewards of the land and pass that appreciation of the Flint Hills onto future generations.
