"A little let down"
December, 2018 NEW
We have been once before to the regular show. Was excited to see the Christmas show. Animals were fun to watch. The host was way too dramatic with her voice. The toy store was creepy! The blacked out eyes as part of their costume made it very hard to watch that segment. Very disappointed that nativity segment was not longer. All in all, it was OK, but not worth the money to go back at all.

"Fun for kids!"
December, 2018 NEW
I went to Branson several times growing up and never attended the Dixie Stampede. Went for the first time in 15 years and took my 2 year old son and husband. I purchased front row seats so we could see all of the action and my son was blown away with the horses, sheep, camels, etc! So worth it to see his little face light up. Only 2 complaints were there's no eating utensils. You get a full meal but nothing to eat it with. I'm all for using my hands but would have been nice to get a heads up. This could have been overlooked but what cannot be overlooked is the show was 100% lip syncing! For the price at rave reviews it never crossed my mind the performers wouldn't actually be singing. They wear headsets and the whole deal but no actual words coming out of their mouths. Had we not been in the front row I probably wouldn't have noticed. Went to Branson Belle the following night and AMAZING performers who actually sing ... and half the price.

We went on a family trip to Branson and couldn’t wait to see the Stampede! It was my 8 year old daughters favorite thing we did while we were there. What a great trip to kick off the holiday season!

Highlight of the Christmas show was the live nativity scene. High speed entertainment , crowd involvement , lots of animals! The show is without a doubt entertaining and engaging, but the good while good is ordinary, Nothing overly tasteful . Really would be nice if silverwear was an option . Service is top notch , prompt quick and friendly. Usually always the same , they have it perfected and do it well but always leave a little disappointed in ther food quality.

This was an event for mainly children. The dinner was very good except they should provide forks and knives, so you do not need to eat with your hands. Also, they should let you know in advance if you can’t finish your meal they will provide a goodie bag to take home what you can’t eat. Otherwise this is a fun venue for the family.
