Fantastic show and evening in general. Appropriate good dinner/snacks and service. Tequila soft serve after dinner was good - served in a cone. Great evening out and no parking issues.

Gate 69 is a highly rated experience. From the welcome to the food - to the show. All exceptional. It is a must do evening. Only uncomfortable side is the bar staff's ongoing cackling about have "a round of tequilas".

Just ask when booking! Quality nibbles are set up on your table. Mix of veggies and meaty stuff... I suppose they can organise vegan if requested.
