Praise for Our Events

John O.

We had an exceptional time at the Flying W! You won’t find a better dinner and Western show in Colorado, and I’ve yet to see a better dinner and stage performance anywhere else either. A wonderful time from start to finish. 

Michael F.

Wonderful family experience. The staff are great and have done a fantastic job of rebuilding the ranch after the fire approx 10 years ago. Variety of activities and animals to see before the dinner shoe, so give yourself time if interested.

Justin C.

We had a great time at Flying W Ranch! Be sure to show up when the gates open. There's a lot to do before the dinner and show starts. The food was great, and plenty of it. The musicians are very talented and out on a great show. We look forward to going back!

Nicole H.

This place is awesome, every detail! Greeted by go cart on arrival to take you to the dining hall. Beautiful dining hall! Every single person who works there is very accommodating and helpful. There are plenty of activities while waiting for dinner and a show! Food was excellent and plenty.

Susannah Z.

I had my Rehearsal Dinner here. I am actually at a loss of words to express my gratitude to Leigh Ann and Ruth. We felt like family. The grounds are absolutely magical and having the entire place to ourselves was instrumental in creating a feeling of being miles away from civilization and we never wanted to leave. Literally my entire wedding party of thirty-seven people agreed that it was the one of most unique experiences they had ever had.

Melissa C.

What a fun evening at the Ranch! We took a group of kids and put of town guests, there was something for everyone. Great atmosphere, the hike was beautiful, kids loved interactions with the animals. The food was hearty, and the musical talent was superb.

Jacey S., Scheels

In January, we held our 500-employee celebration of the successful opening of the Colorado Springs store. The event far exceeded our expectations.  The large LED video wall allowed us to have the most powerful awards ceremony ever. In addition, all five hundred of us watched the game.  The food and service were amazing.  Dancing was great, as the acoustics are fantastic.  I highly recommend the Flying W for any corporate event.

Cathi S., ERA Shields

We held our awards event for ERA Shields last year for the first time at Flying W.  Everyone liked it so much, we decided to go back and have it here again this year.  We love, the venue, the food and the service.  There is no place like it in Colorado Springs.
