Like a lot of things at Foxwoods, it's not as it used to be. I agree with another poster who said a lot of aspects of it are no longer working, but wonder if they're just trying to save a buck of electricity. You have to happen to catch the "show" because it's not worth standing around for more than... More

You come, you gamble, you lose. If you're lucky you'll break even and if you're really lucky you just might go home with more in your pocket than you came with. We come for the Bingo because *someone* is going to win and you've just as good a chance as the person next to you.

The glowing colors of the statue were beautiful! Nice way to show respect and the beauty for the Native American's that made the resort possible.

I didint realize there was a "show" persay until I read the reviews. We stayed at Foxwoods, and probably walked by this statue 50 times as it is near the poker room and I am a poker player. Not once did I see a show! But, the statue is pretty, and it changes colors. Nothing much more to say about... More

This is an indoor statue, artificially lit, that just screams tacky. I really wanted to learn a little about the tribe culture or other indigenous details and history, but there was little. I bought a couple postcards that are just weird looking.

The statue has been around since the mid 90's and the show used to be pretty cool. The statute of a Native with a bow and arrow is set amoung some realistic, but fake, trees and above a pool of water. (lake?) It appears that he is shooting out of a skylight. At set intervals thunder can be heard through... More

Wow, whomever thought to bring some serenity and relaxation to a casino was a genius. Great area to meet people at and just people watch for a bit. Check out this statue at all times of day or night it's worth it.

We like to sit here after dinner at the Festival Buffet. The statue turns slowly and at night color lights shine on it, just a really nice place to sit and relax.

You would think there was a real thunderstorm. Worth while taking a few minutes and watching it. It changes colors as the "storm" progresses.
