Horizon Ranch Flint Hills Immersive Experience Theater

Behind the Name

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.
