Entertaining and interactive and the food is great! The service is is also always right on target. This was our 3rd visit
Mount Olive, North Carolina
So the last time I went to a Dixie stampede show I remember it smelling like horses and the food tasting a bit odd, but this time everything was perfect!! The food was delicious and steaming hot, the entertainment was a lot better than I remember it and it didn't smell like horse poop which was a plus! It was definitely worth the money! Good food and lots of fun!! Perfect place to take the kids!!
Very good displays of horsemanship, and lots of variety in the show. We saw the Christmas-themed show, and enjoyed it. They use a long bench style seating, so you need to be able to climb out of your seat and go behind you if you need to use the restroom or anything during the show. We were hoping to pet some of the horses displayed in their stalls before the show, as I had heard they used to do that - but apparently, no more, due to liability issues. However, after the show, there was a chance for kids to pet a few of the horses by leaning over into the stage arena, and to chat with their riders for a moment. Food was okay (chicken), but not great. Again, be prepared for a lot of up-sells (dvd's, photos, etc.). The show was enjoyable, but even though I had a horse-crazy 9-year-old with me, she liked the Lumberjack Feud show better than the Dixie Stampede. However, she liked this show better than the Hatfield & McCoy show.
We had a great time. Would love to see again. Always worth trying new things and fun experiences when traveling.
