"Kids Loved It"
January 2019
We all loved the show. We wish (for the kids sake) that there had been a bit more animal action and a little less singing, but we really enjoyed the view. The amount of food served is staggering, so make sure you are hungry! Overall a great show!

I have been wanting to experience Dolly's Stampede for a while now. It did not disappoint. We arrived early enough to see the beautiful horses before picking up our tickets at will call. We then found seats in the saloon for the pre-show, which was very good. They also take your picture at this time. I thought the picture packages were a little expensive ($40) so we didn't buy ours. The show itself is astounding. The performers (humans and animals) were top notch. Everyone receives the same meal here, but they can do substitutions for gluten free or vegetarian. I was very pleased with the gluten free options. I received a fruit bowl instead of the cream soup, and a gluten free dinner roll. At the end, I had a brownie in place of the apple turnover. It was warm and very good. I would absolutely visit here again!

We did this on a spur of the moment decision. They got us seating at the top tier, but it gave us a great view of the entire show. I'd say there probably wasn't a bad seat in the entire place. The waitstaff was friendly and they kept the glasses full and the food coming. The show and specatacles were entertaining. Still not sure how they did that magic trick. The pricing was a little high for everything in my opinion.

We love the entire show, from the pre show to the meeting the cast afterwards we can’t think of a single downfall besides the picture people interrupting the show- this was the first trip we bought photos and we had 4 packs. I felt like we missed a good 20 mins of the beginning of the show. Our server Josh was hands down the best we have had out of all our trips there!
