How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Not worth the extra price for the New Years show which was almost exactly like the regular show except they gave us some cheap party favors and a plastic glass of champagne at midnight. Annoying contant hawking of photos, alcohol, trinkets for the kids and tips. $6 for a glass of cheap red wine and $15-20 for souvenir 5x7 photo. We never saw any sign of the advertised continental breakfast although we stayed until 1230. Excellent horsemanship by the riders and trainers; a bit of lippizaner stallion type show mixed in with jousting. Lots of cool sword fighting & jousting but some in our party commented it went on a bit long. Food was ok & plentiful: we each got half a chicken, half baked potato, soup, apple pie triangle and iced tea or soda. It's fun but recommend you only go if you can get a 30-50% discount from the regular pricing.
