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.

"Third time in a year and a half! Still amazing!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed November 18, 2017 NEW
Yes, you read that right, our family has gone three times to Dixie Stampede in a year and a half and we have been amazed each time. This year they’ve added new elements such as the rescue dogs and ice skaters, the skaters were nice but they had a very small area, the dogs were super fun to watch. The living nativity was a big hit with my 3.5yr old, last year she was still too little to take it all in and this year she loved that and Skeeter. If you have small children or a child sensitive to loud noises, I recommend you talk to them about the portion of the show with fire. My daughter was still not ready to see it, I asked her and she said she didn’t like fire and that she remembered the loud noises from last time. So when the time came I held her in my lap and she looked towards me and we covered her ears. The good thing is that it’s right at the beginning, after a few minutes she was ok. For those even more worried about the loud noise you may even ask to enter the arena after it’s passed.

"Good Food, Fun and Value...with a little preparation (10 tips)"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed November 18, 2017 NEW
You've probably read about the good food and the excellent service, so I won't rehash since my experience was the same. Here are some tips to avoid some of the small problems I saw: 1) Leave your CC weapons at the hotel or in your vehicle. Seriously folks. Their security is vigilant and screens for weapons/contraband. 2) Bring plastic utensils with you from the hotel! You will be the envy of your neighbors :) 3) Don't wear your Sunday best "dry clean only" clothes. The meal can be a bit messy, even if you bring utensils. 4) Bring a jacket if you get cold easily. 5) Bring sanitary wipes if you conscious of toilets in public bathrooms. Didn't see seat covers in the Mens room. 6) Charge your phone! They encourage photos and videos. WiFi is free and actually useable with a full arena. 7) If you or a family member has mobility challenges: There is a lot of handicapped parking in front of the door. Drop off family members at the door if you don't have a permit. It is a good walk from the regular parking to the door. 8) Drop off anyone that is sensitive to the smell of animals. The horse barn does have a distinct aroma if you "get my drift" :) 9) If you want to be "first" into the arena: Arrive early and sit near the concession stand. The doors are on the left side of the "saloon" 10) Please use the elevators if you have trouble with stairs. There is a "stampede" when the doors open and folks/kids can be impatient and inconsiderate by trying to squeeze by slow moving patrons.

Where to start... maybe with the LONG walk from the very crowded and huge parking lot? Really if you have mobility issues, it’s a problem The stabling for the horses used I the show is nice and you walk past it on your very long walk to the theater entrance. Kids were having a good talking to the horses whose names are displayed for a personal touch. The ticketing and entry process (even with pre purchased tickets) is not efficient. Take extra patience with you. There’s a pre show about 40 minutes before you go to the arena area for your meal and show. It was three country brothers who actually sang pretty well. Usual corn pone humor along with the songs. Very uncomfortable little wooden stools to perch on while you watch if you are on the upper level. If you are on the floor level you have an actual chair. Then the thundering herd is directed to the arena where your seating is reserved and the real misery begins. You are crammed into a tortuous configuration consisting of an extremely narrow booth (think about 10” deep for the seat) and a narrow ledge in front of you that serves as your table. Your feet don’t touch the floor so you rest them on a bar rail type thing. Hold that pose for about 90 minutes. And eat the Cornish hen, potato wedge, small slice of ham, corn on the cob, biscuit, and dessert with your hands —— no utensils. The soup IS in a bowl with a handle, so you can use your greasy hands to hold that. The food was ok. It did arrive hot. They have a well thought out delivery system. Servers pass in front of your booth with hot trays of each item and place it on your plate one item per pass. They are feeding over a 1,000 people at the same time. That’s pretty Impressive. The show itself was so-so. Kids will be thrilled with it, I think. Lots of stomping of feet,and yelling encouraged. I liked the pig race. It was truly cute, and the dogs ( who were all rescues) were good. The trick riding was well done too. So, for $50 a ticket it was not good value for me, but is a solid hit with a lot of people. So, I did it. It’s over. I’m glad I can say I saw it. But I can’t say I enjoyed it.

We love the Dixie Stampede the show is amazing, the talent, the animals are all the best of the best. My only complaint is the meal and prices. I expect to pay top notch for this type of entertainment and meal. However, the meal isn't kid friendly (at least for my pickey eaters). I on the other hand love it! It is just too expensive for our family to continue to go. I just can't justify nearly $300 for an evening of entertianment for the family. We are going to miss this show. Also those with allergies will need to med up and bring inhalers. I had an asthma attack due to the animals, dust, and fog. I didn't realize how thick the air would be.
