VIP Experience

Special guests, who upgrade their tickets, are given the “royal treatment“ while at our show. This is the ultimate VIP experience with front row seats, making you feel like you’re part of the actual show.

At the conclusion of the performance, you are escorted backstage for a behind the scenes tour, and a chance to get face to face and “hands-on” with our animal stars. Sort of like your own personal petting zoo! You will also get to meet the cast of our show and spend time talking with them, asking questions, and getting photos with the cast and animals. 

Our hope is that you will absolutely love the one on one VIP experience as much as we do!

Many of our performers have stated that this is their favorite part of the entire show, because it gives us a chance to say thank you for allowing us to do what we love! We also enjoy hearing your feedback, and what your favorite part of the show was.

Authentic Chuckwagon Meal

Chances are, you’re already planning on taking your family to eat before the show, so we took the liberty of making your dinner plans an easy choice. Why not treat your family to a real cowboy experience and a unique eating experience with our authentic Chuck Wagon BBQ meal, complete with all the fixings. The dining hall will make you feel as if you’re out on the prairie, after a long day of herding cattle, getting ready for dinner around the campfire. Here, you’ll also meet and get to dine with some of the cast who will be enjoying some pre-show grub and perhaps even entertaining you before the show begins.
