Just a few miles east on Fitzhugh, past the breweries, vintners and spirit makers is a place where movie makers, rock groups, and TV shows come to do some serious learning.
And what do they learn, you might ask?
They learn how to blow up vehicles, how to climb the UT Tower, how to jump from a 30 ft. building, or how to become a trapeze aerialist.
Stunt Ranch is the name, and it is a unique training place where special stunts are learned for movies, commercials, TV shows and music videos.
“We’re 22 acres that offers facilities for team building, corporate events, birthday parties, school events…(for jumping) we have airbags, we have a place where we use airsoft guns, skateboards and a skate ramp,” General Manager Steve Schultz said. On site visitors will find all the things Schultz described, plus a trapeze with nets, a shooting range and two zip lines.
