Last week we were invited to preview the new show Legends of the High country at The OutBack Spectacular. It was great, it was filled with lots of variety including a 1920’s mini circus, snow falling from the cieling and quad bike races involving the audience.
I am often asked if its suitable for kids – in fact the person sitting next to us was surprised we had brought our kids. We try to take them everywhere with us as we believe the more the see the more they learn. Perhaps we’re lucky and they are just well behaved kids but we have never had a major issue at any show. Maybe a few questions here and there during a show from the youngest who has a hard time of being quiet and is very inquisitive. They have been to shows since they were babies so perhaps it’s more of a “they are used to it” scenario. So to answer the question: Yes it’s great for kids!
As well as your meal included there is a holding area where you can soak up the atmosphere of the country show. This is great place to have pre-dinner drinks and let the kids have a dance around to the music and of course go and meet the stars of the show – the Horses.
This is what my 7 year old had to say about the show :
Hi. My name is Arabella, Shellie’s daughter. I am delighted to make this review. The outback spectacular show was terrific, but i was a bit scared when i thought the men were whipping the horses,(later mum told me that they were just cracking a whip on the sand)because i was afraid that it would hurt the horses(i am in the middle of reading Black Beauty). My favourite part was when Emma told us about when her mum was a little girl. I also loved Mrs johnson’s apple pie. When we came out, my brother was pretending to be a horse and I was asking for a pet!!
