"Skeptical but amazed!"
October 2021
I was hesitant on buying from tripster at first, seeing some negative reviews from their past, but was pleasantly surprised! I bought the Dollywood and Stampeed combo. No issues going to dollywood. We did have to wait a little longer at stampeed, but I think that was human error and technology then anything to do with the tickets, (they had our names and reservations on a paper, it's like "will call' tickets)

"Great Show!"
September 2021
The horses and riders were excellent!. Some of the other stuff was just silly. We were packed in rows and given only a fork with which to eat a small chicken. I would have preferred to just watch the show and skip dinner, but I don't know if that was an option. There was plenty of food, but more than we wanted.

Tip: If you don't want to touch your food with dirty hands, bring your own knife. You will be packed into rows of people eating next to you.

"Awesome Dinner Show!"
August 2021
Book early!!! I was amazed at how organized this was - serving dinner to all the people at the same time, while NOT being obtrusive as we watched the show. The food was delicious and plentiful. Amazing organization. LOVED the show, all of it! Just good entertainment.
