You’ll be picked up from select Orlando locations before departing on a 90-minute bus ride to Southern Osceola Country for a “wild-west” experience. Upon arrival, guests will enjoy a BBQ style dinner at the East Corral. The dinner menu includes BBQ chicken, St. Louis smoke ribs, baked beans, corn on the cob, potato wedges, salad, fruit cobbler and choice of soft drink.
Following dinner, partake in a hayride over to the saloon where you can enjoy line dancing alongside a roaring campfire where smores will be offered for desert! This old-fashion, tractor-pulled hayride takes you into the beautiful, 7,000-acre Wildlife Management Area which runs along the Kissimmee River.
On your 45-minute Hayride adventure, you might be lucky enough to see wildlife such as white-tailed deer, bald eagles, wild hogs, hawks, sand hill cranes, wading birds, cows, bulls, alligators and wild turkeys.
Following our hayride we are off to the rodeo! Be mesmerized by the excitement and unpredictable danger of the Saturday Night Rodeo for an evening of family fun at the 1,200-seat rodeo arena. This fun-filled weekly rodeo draws rodeo athletes from all over to compete in trick riding, calf roping, barrel racing and, of course, bull riding. The rodeo is a guest favorite as you get the opportunity to view talented contestants and also enjoy a patriotic tribute to our armed forces.
In addition to enjoying the rodeo spectacle, little cowpokes can participate in a real “calf scramble” where boys and girls try to remove a ribbon from a calf’s tail. The first one to get the ribbon receives the prize!
