Disclosure: This post is part of an invitation from the Stone Castle Hotel, to attend the #BloggingBranson Event in exchange for my coverage. However, all opinions are 100% mine.
There’s another fabulous place to dine in Branson, MO and that’s Dolly Parton’s Stampede. This location is truly a once in a lifetime experience. When you enter the restaurant, you’ll notice that there is a dimensional LED wall that is comprised of 12.5 million lights. This really brings the show to life as you dine at Dolly Parton’s Stampede!
Before you Enter
Upon arrival at Dolly Parton’s Stampede, you’ll have to pause to get some photos taken with the famous show’s residents and the cast of animals. They are right there for everyone to enjoy if you’re lucky you may even get to have your photo taken with a Southern Belle. You’ll immediately feel as if you’re being transported back in time.
Entertainment While You Dine
I was amazed at how put together the show is at Dolly Parton’s Stampede. You’ll witness piglets and puppies everywhere. The amazingly talented cast performs the feat of jumping through flaming hoops, balancing on horses and even people dancing while hanging from a cord on the ceiling. This was truly something out of this world.
The piglet races are super cute and one thing that appealed to me is that all of the dogs you’ll witness are rescue pups. Between the specially trained dogs that put on a show that includes Fly-Ball racing and agility competitions, you’ll really be inspired by the talent of both animals and people while dining at Dolly Parton’s Stampede.
More About Dolly Parton’s Stampede
You’ll want to arrive early so that you can enjoy the pre-show, as the seats fill up quickly. One of the neatest things is the souvenir boot that you can purchase to have filled up with a drink. The Carriage Room Opening Act begins 50 minutes before the show, a good tip to know so that you can enjoy the full experience at Dolly Parton’s Stampede.
You will laugh very hard during SKEETER & NUGGET™’s comedy act that is 100% family-friendly entertainment. Between this comedy act, the piglets and the buffalo, and all of the entertainment portions I referenced above, you’ll need to be prepared for a long evening out when you go to Dolly Parton’s Stampede and experience this 35,000 square foot arena.
