We attended a Chuck Wagon dinner, buffet style, and it was awesome. Couldn't believe how quick the servers were at getting 100's of guest fed. The food was excellent. The high of the evening was the entertainment. The band was awesome. The lady who played the fiddle was outstanding and we learned that she actually teaches classical violin and she converted over for this band some 9 years ago. In fact her music teacher was the band leader. The comedy they bring to their audience made us laugh most of the night. Don't miss this dinner theater.

Town was great the bus tour was very exciting the bus number was 803 the tour guide's name was Matt he does an awesome job. It is well worth the money. As for the dinner it was good, all of the people are very hospitable. The show was excellent. It is comparable to branson shows. Best birthday that has ever been planned. I would definitely recommend going here. Carol & Mike from Nebraska

This dinner show was fun! The music was fantastic! The food was tasty! Unfortunately we did not know about the fort town and all the neat things to see. We got there too late to visit the fort town.

We specifically visited Fort Hays to see the Dances With Wolves film set as advertised on the web site. We were very disappointed to find that the film set was not on this site and that the building they had from the movie had been moved there from 11 miles south. We did however enjoy the dinner show, the fiddle player was very good and the meal as expected at a chuck wagon supper. The only complaint we had was that although we booked the tickets in May we were seated in the fith row as it would seem that people on the coach tours get the front rows.
