We've just returned from 3 days and 2 nights at Horseshoe Resort. I was lucky enough to find a Wagjag offer that allowed us to experience Horseshoe while staying within this years vacation budget. Our package included passes to the Adventure Park, which the kids (and I) loved! The zipline and OGO balls were must-do's for us and were very much enjoyed. My only 'complaint' would be the hours of the Adventure Park (11-6 during the week).....the kids wanted to go back after dinner for more 'adventure', but it was too late at that point.
We stayed in a 2 bedroom Slopeside Condo, and were satisfied with our accomodations. Yes, there are improvements that could be made to make them more modern, and I'm sure will be made in time, but there was nothing that hindered our stay at all. Our condo had a screened in balcony (loved it in the evening when we were relaxing!) Having access to a kitchenette to make dinners was definitely a plus. Another perk was having 2 bathrooms....and a washer/dryer available in our condo if needed.
All staff that I dealt with (over the phone when making the reservation & inquiring about switching dates, to check in, at the Adventure Park, etc.) were more than friendly and accommodating.
We did enjoy lunch at the Crazy Horse Resturant, and were happy with the options available. The service was good and the food came quickly so we could go back to the park :)
We are definitely hoping to return to Horseshoe in the future to enjoy some of the other activities that are available.
