  • Now, I have to admit I'm from a long way out of town - England in fact - so I might not be qualified to judge the quality of the Rodeo. Texan friends tell me that better can be found out in the country. But as a tourist, this is hard to beat for a slice of Texas. Our favourites are the barrel racing and steer tying - bull riding is exciting, but it's over so quickly! Oh, and there's a great atmosphere too.
  • What a cool place! The building itself is very impressive. And the rodeo was great entertainment. We enjoyed the bronc riders - although it was really exciting when one of the riders was thrown over the railing, out of the arena, but thankfully he was unhurt - and the barrel racing was really fun to watch. I'd go back!
  • The show is absolutely fantastic and includes, wrangling, bull riding, and races. The atmosphere is really good and the crowd really gets into it when someone lasts the entire 8 seconds. The mini shows in between are really entertaining and I had a blast experiencing it all.
  • Family tradition from whe I was a young kid and now the tradition continues. The history is just amazing. Check out the cowboy hall of fame if you have a chance.
  • The 2 hour cowtown coliseum Rodeo show entertains you with cowboy games. The cowboy games gives a weekend evening fun.
