October 2021
It is a lot of fun and great food. We wish they would change some of the content year to year. We go once a year and it has been the same for the last three years.
Still like the show a lot.

"Dolly Parton's Stampede"
August 2021
Family friendly. We brought a small group of 6 and were nicely accommodated. There were (Covid minded) segregated seating options. Our server was fast, friendly, responsive and attentive. Food was delightful and plenty of it! The show was entertaining but could use a bit more choreography (from a audience perspective) for keeping the energy up. This is a western style show so don't expect Cirque du Soleil but entertaining none the less. We enjoyed it.

Tip: You need to ask for segregated seating. Middle section is probably the best seating area on either side of the arena.
