Dinner is...Just like the TV series MASH! Hold your tray and they PLOP it on! The cowboy music show is full of one liners yet funny and fun...Well worth the time and expense...Book early...then you sit right down front. Seating is by reservation date.

We went for the $0.99 pancakes. Breakfast for four was super reasonable. Wish we would have came for the Chuck wagon events. Seemed like a neat place with plenty to do.

The chuckwagon supper was delicious! The cowboy variety show was great! Very entertaining and the musicians are very talented. Highly recommend this family friendly activity after a day at Bear Country and the Reptile Gardens.
