Needs an overhaul
, Jul 2021
I generally try not to write negative reviews. I do sort of think if you don’t have something nice to say better to not say anything at all but I think the way this is advertised is really misleading. It is not a sound light and story show. It is one light cast upon the beautiful rocks in no way interesting over the course of an hour plus. What’s more is you had just traveled up the river and seen all those rocks so the redundancy seems silly. It feels to me like there is so much potential in the show that’s being missed. I would guess it hasn’t been updated since it began 50 years ago. Also I found it heavy handed with morality and Christianity which I am for both but not during an entertainment show on vacation. The meandering Way in which the stories of Moab were told were hard to follow and uninteresting. I can’t understand why more voices weren’t used, why images of the stories they were telling we’re not projected onto the rocks, why a variety of different lights were not used. Again I feel like there’s a really awesome opportunity in what they’re trying to do but the show needs to be completely redone. I will say that the dinner was fantastic and I appreciated the staffs enthusiasm and kindness but it’s not enough to make for a great outing at $90. Also way too long I would cut at least an hour out of the evening. I don’t think that I stand alone with this opinion as when the evening came to an end there was no applause. ✌️
Moab canyon dinner and light show
, Jul 2021
Great food and a very nice boat ride with clear explanations and history of the area. The hostess was great, and we enjoyed the light show.
Nice evening

Dinner was great!! The boat trip was good.. hard to get the idea..behind some of the stories and how it related to the lighted rocks.
It was not what I had expected.

I liked the food. I was not pleased with the narration of the show. The audio started with biblical references and came back to them more than once. I found this offensive. In addition, the native peoples were referred to as 'renegades,' again offensive. It was a dialogue geared toward white Christian people and should have been marketed as such. I would not have bought tickets if I had known the dialogue. I was expecting something a bit more science based and was totally disappointed.

This is such a sweet memory for us. Mr. Dee is your tour guide and we hope that he has a lot more tours to give. The light show was nice and the food was good, but Mr Dee is the reason why we would go again and again.
nice evening all the way around

We enjoyed the food, dinner & cruise. As has been stated before, its a little dated, but the light show was better than the reviews say. I appreciate the fact that it is a family run business & that they gave God the credit for the majesty that we saw.
Great introduction to Moab!

Beautiful surroundings and wonderful stories! It was a great way to start our vacation in Moab! The dinner was delicious too!
2021 summer to remember

This dinner cruise was a family event for me! The food was great, and the host was fantastic! Preston really knows his history of Moab and his love of the community was evident! The light show was incredible! Unfortunately, there was a real problem with the cruise! There was a large group of individuals from India that could not keep their mouths shut, so that everyone else could enjoy the show. The host even instructed at the beginning to lower their voices so that everyone could enjoy the show! For this reason and this reason along, I was totally unhappy that these individuals ruined this experience for me and my family
Memorable Night

Listening to the history of Moab on the boat ride was interesting. Our host was sweet and knowledgeable and of course captain Ron steered the boat perfectly! The entire night from dinner to the end was memorable! My family loved it!
