Awesome!! It was fabulous to get my child in for free as part of an accommodation deal with Sea World resort, but this show and the dinner were absolutely fantastic. The vegetarian meal was delicious and the crowd involvement was lots of fun. We don't live in Australia any more so it was wonderful that my child had such a... More

The show is certainly worth the experience although I do not think it is something I would visit more than once every few years and I would probably only go with the kids. There was always something happening in the ring so you were always entertained and the meal was of good quality.

This show is totally amazing! It was so much better than what I thought it would be! Kiddies under 3 can sit on your lap & are FREE! Meal was so yummy & we didn't have to wait long. Very friendly staff & a MUST DO. Stay @ Gold Coast Holiday Park across the road :)

The horsemanship, the comedy and the singing of the cast was outstanding. The whole show was extremely well done and the food was good quality. The gift shop was extremely well stocked and well priced and they sure did sell a lot of goods. The line was fairly long all the time. Every bit of the attraction was very professional... More

Show starts off with dinner. Entrée served on table when we arrived. So hygienic, nicely covered. The experience of the show is 3-D and real life. Dinner was good piece of steak! The whole experience is just so worthwhile! Value for money for live show, meal, horses etc! I am so impressed how well organised everything was for the evening!

Very interesting dinner theatre experience! The Christmas theme was a nice touch and we really enjoyed singing Christmas caroles. Really fun pre-show with drinks for purchase, live music and photo ops with the animal stars! The show was great with excellent service and a great 3 course meal. The steak was done perfectly! Would definitely recommend for western culture fanatics... More

We had limited expectations of this show but we were completely blown away with how good this show is!! The moment we walked in the door we were caught up in the Aussie atmosphere where everyone was having a good time. The pre show entertainment was great and the whole venue is purpose built and fantastic. The show itself is... More

The stories in the show, the animals, the lighting effects, the characters were all amazing. And the meals were also great. How they feed approximately 500 people piping hot steak or sausage meals that taste great is incredible. From the moment you step through the doors the show starts and is non-stop for over 2 hours. Not a cheap night... More
