“Great Fun Rodeo”

The Kissimmee Sports Arena Rodeo
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed October 5, 2013

Fun evening out at an amateur rodeo with most entrants being under 18 years old. Good variety of events such as barrel racing, calf roping, bull and mustang riding. The MC encouraged lots of crowd participation and there was a chance for the children to get involved by taking a ribbon from a calf. This is an ideal way to escape the plastic that is Disney and a gentle introduction to Rodeo for those who have never been.

We really did enjoy watching the fun in the arena,the riders of the bulls were very young some age just 10 years old,but wow were they brave,it was very exciting too see and a great atmosphere..barrel racing was great the cow girls looked fab and so did there horses..just what i expected....beer was cheap,i had some peanuts.......they were not for me...yuk boiled but you have to try before you know hey? there were a few stalls that were selling things outside too.
we had a good view but i think all the seats give a good view..i think a lot of the crowd were tourists so all in good RIDE UM COW BOY spirit..this went on for well over the 2 hours that the flyer said...The parking needs sorting though for us non wearing cow boy boot tourist,the grass was wet and slippery and there was no lighting ..Bar and dance after which we did not attended but will if there comes a next time ...

Having never been to a rodeo before this one last night did not disappoint.

Although the bull riders were young there was plenty of enthusiasm and a spirit of get out there and beat the bull. The bulls were the definite winners during the evening. There was even one that didn't want to leave the area arena and entertained the crowd lol. Refreshments were available and prices in keeping with other watering holes in the area. We didnt try the corn but it did look mouth watering and juicy,We had hot dogs & burgers which were nice. The fries were inconsistent which is extremely hard to do, two portions were hot (one was extremely greasy) the third portion was cold, hard and overcooked, as if they'd been put in an oven to keep warm but left too long then mixed in with a few soggy chips.
This didn't detract from our enjoyment of the evening

It had rained plenty this week in Kissmmee and the grass/ground was wet especially slippery near the entrances to the covered seats. This might be a consideration to be addressed for rodeo night when it gets dark when people are leaving.

We'd planned to go here before leaving home and were really looking forward to seeing a rodeo. We weren't disappointed, it was a great nights entertainment, not just a show but local entrants competing for placing points in bull riding, barrel racing and roping. For how long the rodeo went on it was a cheap price for a really good evenings entertainment. There are staged seats under cover to shelter you from the sun (or rain) and basic food like burgers & fries available.
The only down side if you visit after it has rained is that you have to park on a grassy area, not bad in itself but it slopes towards the entrance and the water gathers there and forms a muddy pool that you have to paddle through (not very customer orientated when it could easily be overcome) all in all though I would go again.
