Easy fun way to spend a evening, have some food in the Stockyards area, watch the cowboys strut their stuff very close to the action.

If I hadn't actually been to a real rodeo I might have enjoyed this better. There were a variety of events like bronco riding and calf roping. But you could tell that since it was only an exhibition and not a competition and it felt like they really didn't care.

I went with a couple of other foreign exchange student friends and it was amazing. The show was great and very entertaining. I will gladly go for a second time

I completely expected a tourist trap. But this show was well organized and flew by. Drinks were a decent price, as were the seats. It was a great time. I will definitely go again, when in Fort Worth area.

This was brilliant. I expected a tourist show and not the real thing, boy was I so wrong. The Rodeo was 2 hours long and that flew over. Just one tip ...avoid the kids who buy balloons that are made into hats that a clown sells in there, as the kids hat can block your view...we moved as this happened... More

This was my first rodeo. It was great family fun. To see man against beast was a sight. It was exciting to see up close bull riding. And to top it off, there was not a bad seat in the house. I will definitely attend again when I am in the area😊

We had a brilliant night and were thrilled by the variety of events. The skills showed by the cowboys and cowgirls was amazing. We had a really friendly local and his Grandson sitting next to us who explained how each event worked. We really enjoyed the sheep scramble as it was won by the grandson of our new friend, great...

This is a must go in Texas. Spent a few extra bucks and got the box tickets. The box has a good front row view but bit small spaced and uncomfortable. The VIP seats on the balcony kinda thing looked more comfortable but view of one side of the arena will be blocked. Loved the show. Two hours flew fast.... More

Nothing says Cowtown like the rodeo. Locals take it almost as seriously as high school football. It is close to a religious experience, with contestants of all ages. If you are from somewhere up north or across the Atlantic, get used to the concept of love of big animals big spaces and big guns.
