"Stampede"
January 2020
We came with another family and between us we had a 1, 2, and 3 year old. The show was very entertaining and had a great variety. The only downside we were sitting close to the side stage, and the volume of the pyrotechnics scared our 2 y/o. The food was good and they feed you a lot. The kids loved looking at the horses before and after the show.

Tip: All seats seemed good the way the arena was set up so it's not worth it to pay extra for better seating. They do expect gratuity at the end as well.

"Christmas fun for the whole family"

The show was great—even our teens enjoyed it! Nativity scene was beautiful and then there is plenty of comedy and audience participation as well. The pre-show was great, too. Dinner was delicious and portions are just right.

"Fun time!"
January 2020
Enjoyed myself immensely. Food was the absolute best of all the dinner attractions attended. Show was entertaining. Check in lines unorganized, people that just needed to exchange a voucher behind people trying to buy tickets.
