"Worth the money"
December, 2017 NEW
Check out the menu. Everything they serve taste wonderful. The soup is the best. And you can buy some in the gift shop for $7-$8 a bag. You do eat with your hands. Get over it because its fun. They have moist towlets and give you a hot wet towel at end meal.
The dessert is Apple turnover, not my favorite but its ok.
The main show is at least 1.5 long. Plus theres a carriage room pre-show if you come early enough to catch it. You are kinda cramped together, but during the show there is often crowd participation(North Pole vs South Pole) is initiated and also fun.
Dont come if your a snob and people/crowds make you cranky... Do not bring kids that you cannot control and allow to cause problems for others since you are sharing space. Dont ruin someone elses Christmas show experience simply because your thanking baby Jesus hisself that for once your kid/kids are attacking someone else and not you.
The only weird thing is that the gift shop is only open during the times the estab has opened for its dinners and shows... So if your vacationing and need to leave you cant have access to the gift shop to buy your last minute fixing to leave town decisions.
Esp weird when it's Christmas season and people can go back in and buy more stuff as gifts!
Come on Dolly! Let's get the gift shop open for people on the go.

"Six year old granddaughter had a blast."
August, 2016
Great show, great food. Purchased tickets on-line for 4 adults, one granddaughter. Good family entertainment. Be sure and give yourself a few extra minutes for traffic, parking and getting in. Usually a sold out show. Recently moved to eastern Oklahoma. Branson is our new vacation destination.

"Pure Americana"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed December 10, 2017 NEW
Located in Branson Missouri.This is a sort of dining experience whilst watching an excellent display of horse riding, American pageantry, pig and chicken racing and other oddities. You are seated in an oval shaped arena with tiered seating (I guess a full house is about 1000) and tables on each side. One side is "North" and the other side is "South" and the excellent MC whose name I can't remember, but think Colonel Sanders, plays one side off against the other in friendly rivalry. Food is basic but acceptable - expect to eat with your fingers. Unlimited supply of soft drinks. Pure Americana and way over the top but fun to visit once.

Reviewed December 09, 2017 NEW
We have been to pigeon forge twice and now this was our first time here in Branson. I absolutely love the creamy soup served with their meal and always buy extra after the show. Our server was Kelly and she was excellent. She effectively took care of two rows of us and left us wanting for nothing. The show was great. All the people and animals were amazing. My Most favorite part was the beautiful angle coming out of the sky during the manger scene. And runner up was the ice skating. A new twist!! Who knew ice skaters could appear in a dirt arena!! Definitely a must while here in Branson.
