How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
The website write-up of the show and video samples were 100% misleading. It was not up close and personal for example and there was no menagerie of prehistorical animals: Two dino babies impossible to see from the seats, 1 giant dragonfly, 1 T-rex but no Alosouras as promised, 1 man sized beastie and a T-rex do not a show make. Very sad. The show was short 50 minutes but not sweet. 10 precious minutes without puppets in the beginning while kids tried to say their memorized lines, cute but not fun. Only 10 kids were allowed near the action. And the promise to bring the babies to the foyer was not kept, only the dragonfly made it, a repeat of what happened during the show when it walked through the audience. Add to this the fact that while we were charged $90 for four tickets, our tickets were actually $68 per face values. We were not notified or given the option to pass on the show when our seating preference was unavailable. No communication before or at will call. We had to discover the bait and switch swindle ourselves. This was our first experience with GoldStar and we are not impressed. The videos of the show showed lots of kids all gathered around close and personal and many different dinos - that was not the case at the show. Our grandson thought the whole thing was a movie! - so much for petting zoo. Don't go, take in a movie instead. RCW
