Description And Comments

A charming cast of audioanimatronic bears sing and stomp in a Western-style hoedown. Editing has cut a few minutes from the original show, quickening its pace somewhat, and it remains and air conditioned refuge on hot days. However, most songs remain the same, and the Country Bear Jamboree has run for so long that the geriatric bears are a step away from assisted living. Readers' comments tend to echo the need for something new.

First, from a Sandy Hook, Connecticut, mom:

I know they consider it a classic, and kids always seem to love it, but could they PLEASE update it after half a century?

A woman from Carmel, Indiana put her experience in perspective, writing:

Here is another half hour of my life that I cannot get back.

But, a Mississippi dad defends the show:

I find it interesting how my reactions and those of my family change to certain attractions. Take Country Bear Jamboree, for instance: In my 30s I enjoyed it mildly but considered it somewhat hokey and lame, yet I thoroughly enjoyed my daughter's intense love of it at ages 3 and 8 on two previous trips. This time, at age 54, I sat up fairly close with my wife and loved it - we even sang along! Of course, this was partly to embarrass my now-16-year-old daughter, who sat hunched down in the very last row. She says we have creeping senility, but I told her, "Just wait till you bring YOUR kids!"

Touring Tips

On hot or rainy days and during peak seasons, the Jamboree draws larger crowds from midmorning on.
