    Good times!
    Checked out a Friday night rodeo here and really enjoyed ourselves. Set in the silver spur boxes and it made for a perfect view. Seating was comfy, drinks were cheap enough and the venue was clean. Would consider it a must do if in town.

    Clean intimate venue
    Air conditioned! I wasn’t expecting that but what a pleasant surprise in 113° temps! Clean, organized, everyone is kind and helpful. I was going to purchase tickets online but really wanted the Gold Bucket seats. I went to the box office and was able to purchase Gold Bucket seats. No added fees! So comfy and worth it. You’re up close and seats are comfy. The venue is small and there aren’t any bad seats. The animals exit towards the side opposite of the coliseums entrance.

    Fun Experience
    Went to the ticket booth 3 times before I actually bought the tickets for the bull fighting as I thought it was a bit pricey once the tax had been added. However, we really enjoyed the show which lasted 90 minutes. It was also great to think Elvis once performed there too.

    Rodeo and Bull Fighting
    The Cowtown Coliseum is a great venue for events at the stockyards such as the rodeo and bull fighting. We enjoyed both while in town. The location is perfect for those who are enjoying the stockyards, with many shops and restaurants in the area. If you would like something to eat or drink inside, concessions and a bar are both offered. Nice venue with lots of history.

    Very Fun Except Bad Sound System
    The riders and others competing in the rodeo were great. It was a fun experience. The one thing that took away from the experience was we couldn’t understand a word the announcer was saying. I guess I would blame it on the sound system.

    Fun Night but HORRIBLE Audio
    We bought last minute tickets to the Saturday night event to start our vacation to Texas. The event was great, nice way to do something we don’t really have in the Northeast. My kids enjoyed it. Seats in the suite were perfect with a nice view. Food was okay. I really wished they had fountain drinks vs bottled but not a huge problem. The only real problem here is that it is absolutely impossible to understand a single sentence the announcer is saying. You might get a word here or there but that’s it. It would have been preferable to have no announcer to the noise of someone speaking so loud for no reason since you can’t understand it. This is not announcer’s fault but the sound technician and audio system. They didn’t account for acoustics with their design. Please, I beg you, fix this atrocity.

    Classic Texas Rodeo
    The Cow Coliseum is a great venue - well maintained and spotless! The rodeo was a blast with lots of high energy, non-stop entertainment supporting the competitors in each event. We had a blast and would absolutely go back again if we're ever in Fort Worth! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

First time in Texas. I wanted to enjoy my first rodeo ever. I didn't know that I couldn't use my camera (it's not stated anywhere). A woman from the security came to me and instead of explaining nicely she shout at me "you can't use a camera. Put it away". I was putting my camera in my bag when another person from security came. A very old man (easily over eighty years old !) shouting at me as well and threated me to kick me out. I told him that my camera was in my bag but he said that he didn't care about that. I explain that to the company when they sent me the review to do but they never replied or apologies. AVOID THIS VENUE !!! THEY MUST BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELF TO EMPLOY THIS KIND OF PEOPLE

I went online to buy tickets to the PBR event on June 1st. We had received some free tickets to a rodeo event in the past and enjoyed it. I attempted to purchase 5 tickets for 3 adults at $35 each and 2 kids at $15 each. It came to $135.00 as expected and then I knew there would be taxes and possibly a couple dollar service charge per ticket for buying them online. However when I got to the checkout my total was a $2.50 per order fee whatever that is and $32.30 in convenience fees, then a $20.00 facility fee. A total of $54.80 in fees which brought the total to $189.80. Completely unacceptable. Granted if you e ever been to the coliseum you know it needs the money for building maintenance but to pay more than a third of the price in service fees. And as other reviewers have mentioned there is no way around this. Even if you go to the box office you pay the same fees. I hope we get some more free tickets someday because that’s the only way we will be going back. I don’t mind paying for tickets but the fees are outrageous.
