"A Great way to End the Day"
August, 2016
We had wonderful evening. Our seats were excellent to see the entire show. The girls, age 10, loved the trick riding and laughed at the chicken chases and pig races. They waved their flags and were thrilled to have them signed after the show. It is great on this day and age to enjoy a truly family show!
Tip: It was great to book early and come early to the show.

First of all just like everybody else I heard you in front of this green screen take your picture. Next you're herded into this room it looks like an old-fashioned swing which is ok. And then you have to wait there ask you if your with the North or the South. Naturally I'm from the south if you like big hair overrated food and just a horny country so have at it. I thought it was overpriced and to top it off they don't even provide silverware. That's right you have to eat with your hands and you got dust flying everywhere for the horses and animals kind of gross but some people like that sort of thing. But this is just one woman's opinion

Watching the show with all the horses and the cattle while eating dinner with your hands( no utensils ) is really a unique experience! The food is always great and I guess the best thing is, the South wins the battle sometimes!🇹🇿😀

We enjoyed the show, the performers are very talented and the show keeps moving. They have live buffalo!! Our toddler is just shy of 2 and there were parts that made him nervous and wanted to be held, basically the first 10 minutes then after that the show is lighthearted and fun. The beginning has a lot of loud noises and is dark. We did buy him a seat because he had his own meal and would sit on his own once he was comfortable with the show. They have children seats that attach to the tables which is very nice. The food was very good and they have a gluten free option. Fun for everyone!
