"A great night out with family at a awesome dinner and show."
January 2020
The evening was perfect. The pick up of the tickets was easy and we enjoyed the preshow. The show itself was so beautiful, really well done and such talent displayed. The food was delicious. I really loved the creamy soup. The chicken was juicy and tasty. All around it was a great time.

"Unique Dining Experience"
December 2019
We attended the Christmas show at the Stampede. The live nativity was beautiful! There isn't a bad seat in the house. The show was the perfect combination of singing, animals and food. The horses and their riders were amazing. We also enjoyed the pig and pony races. The food was very good- especially the chicken and the cream of vegetable soup! This was a very enjoyable night out while on vacation with my family.

First time here. Did not care for the pre-show. I think they do this to get you to buy something to snack on and a drink, which were expensive. The ticket lady was super nice and friendly and showed us to our seats in a very quick and orderly way. Don't think there is a bad seat in the place. Servers were nice, and very efficient. We thought the food was very good. Was hot, fresh, and our server kept our drinks filled. The show was entertaining, but a little corny, and pretty dated. But all in all, was worth the price of the tickets.

We bought tickets for this show expecting it to be really cheesy, but still a fun show. Unfortunately, the entire show and dinner was disappointing. The employees were the best part of the experience. They were actually really great! The ticket lady was the most friendly woman you could ever meet. The woman that took our stampede photos had so much fun energy. The employees positioned at entrance points were so helpful and gave great directions. The only other thing I enjoyed from the experience was the pre show. The three guys on stage were so much fun and I thought they were pretty talented as well! They played fun music and they got the children involved. I would pay to watch them perform again. Although the experience of the pre show itself was fun, they kept trying to get us to spend more money. My family of 4 spent around $200 for this dinner and show. We get to the pre show area and they have a menu on the table with items to order, but the prices were not listed on the menu itself. Also, while we’re trying to watch the show there are people coming around trying to sell you pictures (the pictures they took of us as we came in) and keychains. They already have the picture printed out and put in a booklet. It was around $30 for the picture. We took 3 sets of pictures: one with the family, one with the kids, and one with the parents. It would have been $90 to get them all (plus an extra $10 per set to get keychains). On our way to the show, we were offered some free popcorn of the stuff they didn’t sell. We refused because we were going to the “4-course meal” and show. I really regret not taking the popcorn, because the food was really disappointing. They give each person the whole small chicken, but they don’t give you a knife to cut it with. They also served soup but didn’t give a spoon. A woman sitting next to us asked for a spoon and she never got one. They ONLY provided a fork for each person. I, luckily didn’t have to deal with trying to tear apart the chicken because I eat vegetarian. When looking online, I was so excited that they had a vegetarian option and that their soup was still a part of it. However, when we got there I was told that the soup was actually made with chicken broth and was offered a fruit cup instead. The vegetarian meal also came with half-cooked, very unseasoned vegetables. My mom didn’t enjoy her non-vegetarian meal either. The corncob was soggy, and they advertised a homemade biscuit that tasted far from homemade. The food definitely was not worth the price we paid. Online they advertised receiving your meal being a part of the show. Basically, the announcer started singing or rambling about something while the waiter or waitress grabbed partial corncobs out of a bucket and put on your plate. They made it sound like a huge meal, but we were still hungry when we left. The show itself was both cool and awful. I was impressed by the horses and the horse riders. They both had great skill. However, maybe I’m just sensitive, but I felt sad for a lot of the animals in the show. Two horses were forced to jump through a hoop of flames while the horse rider balanced with one foot on each horse. They also sent in like 4 or 5 bison, I believe, and they then had the actors herd them back out. To me, they seemed very confused and uncomfortable. The show itself was far cheesier than I expected and by the end I was very annoyed. The first half told a story that included the colonization on the America’s that had inaccuracies about the Native Americans. The second half was just a competition between the “north and the south” that included kids from the audience chasing chickens and men from the audience throwing toilet seats like horse shoes. Finally, the show came to a finish and we were escorted out.. STRAIGHT into the gift shop. Over priced show, over priced photos to take home, everyone had a tip jar, and then we have to go through the overpriced gift shop to leave. The food was gross and the show was annoying. Overall very disappointed, but at least the employees were nice and the pre show didn’t suck.

There dinner show is outstanding. The food is great and was warm when served considering all the people they serve. There was a show of horses and comedy acts while you ate. Very well put together and you had to love it. The acts were very colorfull and put a smile on your face. Part of our group was first time and the smiles and enthusiasm all night were worth a million dollars. They are still talking about it.

From all the reviews you can already tell this is a great show. You do have to eat with your fingers and the seating is a little close but we very much enjoyed the show. I would go back.
