My husband & I attended the Bar-T-5 Cookout in June after reading recommendations on the Tripadvisor webiste. We have to say that we found the experience to be a little lacking. Maybe it all started when we were told to be at the gathering site at least 1/2 hour before the wagons leave for the eating area. We arrived promptly at the appointed time only to have to wait more than an HOUR before leaving, having to listen to a cute, but
L-O-N-G, drawn-out story beforehand about the family who started the Bar-T-5 (we're assuming the previous show had not yet ended so they were trying to delay heading out to the campsite). Yes, it was a pleasant ride out to the cookout area in the covered wagons (in spite of a less than entertaining "driver" -- we feel he tried a bit too hard to be funny!), the food was good,but nothing special, and fortunately the entertainment was better. But overall, the entire experience was pretty much a letdown. Not sure exactly what we were expecting, but everything seemed a bit "tired". Maybe we're used to "Disney" quality extravaganzas. Although we didn't expect or even want that, we did anticipate more. Overall, it was a nice evening but I wouldn't go beyond that. I have a feeling kids would enjoy it more.
