high-capacity elevator coming in 2022.


The Medora experience is meant to be enjoyed by people of all ages and abilities. That’s why we’re committing to a better experience for our guests who are elderly and families who visit Medora mobility and sensory disabilities.


Access Medora is an ongoing initiative to improve accessibility all over Medora. And our greatest opportunity for impact is at the Burning Hills Amphitheatre, where a high-capacity elevator is under construction, thanks to a $1 million lead gift from the Engelstad Foundation.

here's what else we've accomplished.

In 2016, we completed renovation of the historic Old Town Hall Theater in downtown Medora. This project included new accessible bathrooms, a new entry with wheelchair ramp entrance, and new seating. This was funded with $600,000 in donor gifts.

In 2017, we expanded our restrooms at the Burning Hills Amphitheatre, home of the Medora Musical, to include additional handicap restrooms and added a separate family restroom. One family donated 65% of the $250,000 project and TRMF funded the balance.

In 2019, TRMF opened Manitou, the Point to Point Zipline. It’s design was chosen for its accessible friendly features.

In 2020, we opened our renovated mini golf course, Little Bully Pulpit. With this updated design our new front nine holes are ADA accessible.
