Dixie Stampede in Branson, MO

We decided to see the Dixie Stampede while we were in Branson.  My husband mostly does not have much of an opinion on what we do.  He usually says, “Whatever you want honey.”.  I knew that all of us would enjoy the show and the food, so I was pretty excited.  After we Rode the Ducks, visited the Titanic Museum and ate lunch we went by Dixie Stampede to pick up tickets for the show that evening.  Luckily there was no line!  I had a coupon from Ride the Ducks but did not end up using it, because I paid extra for preferred seating.  I will tell you, all the seats are great, and if you want to save money, you can purchase regular seats and see everything just fine.


At the Dixie Stampede.  Really, we all had fun!

When we got there, there was a huge line!  I’m so glad I got my tickets early.  We went into the preshow area and sat down, this is a separate room from the arena.  We were confused at first, but a waitress explained that we would be seated in the arena after the pre-show.  They had a juggler.  Her was really good and funny.  After that, we all went into the arena and found our seats.  We were on the 2nd row and had great seats.  The way the seats are set up is perfect because no one’s head would block your view.  We got seated, and they asked us what we wanted to drink.  The seating is a bit crowded, but luckily none of us were next to any large people.  Before the show started, our waitress asked if my youngest could participate in the show.  She said she would let me know when she needed her to come down, and where she needed to be.  I said sure.  The food was great, and our waitress was too.  We had no silverware, so we had to eat everything by hand, which wasn’t that bad.  We had biscuits, a small roasted chicken, a strip of pork loin, corn on the cob, and an apple turnover for dessert.  The show was excellent and kept us entertained.  When it was time for Ragan to go down (we just went to the first level of the audience area), she did great.  She had to swing a little lasso, and the waitress helped her. It was adorable and made the visit even more worth it.  I think they pick newbies to participate.

Swinging the laso.
