    See I'd heard that too, run out of money and all closed BUT I've seen nothing anywhere to substantiate it!

    Website doesnt look like it's working either though so :/

    Well a lady at work had booked tickets and she got pirates tickets instead. She'd seen pirates and didnt like it, so phoned to complain that they hadnt even asked her if the swap was ok. They told her that they couldnt get arabian tickets any more since they were closed. Of course, some ticket places do say stuff like that when they've fallen out with a certain show or something.

    She asked me and I said I hadnt heard, did a search and couldnt find any hint of a mention online :/ but their domain looks like it's offline

    Hmmmm...I was just given a voucher for up to six $10 tickets for Arabian Nights. You have to be able to show you work in health care (in any capacity) for the $10 ticket. Children and non-health care workers are more... but still less than a full priced ticket.

    I wonder if it's a precursor to the inevitable? It's been struggling for some time...

    I dont like to be unkind, but if it is true, I am not surprised. We went quite a few years ago and both the show and food were appalling. Sad that there will be job losses though.

    I've heard that before Mags. I've not ever been for several reasons, but the primary is the poor reviews.

    However, I think our Issy has been (more recently?) and had a nice time there... :unsure: But I could be mistaken.

    We did Medieval Knights years ago and I was sort of ok with that. I'm just not happy having to eat with my hands. :sorry:

    The Dolly Parton place is now advertising that it's a flea market... :unsure: Not been to check it out, but there you have it. Although we didn't go to that one either, we were surprised that it closed so quickly.

    You're quite right Tink. We were at Arabian Nights at the beginning of the year and I actually wanted top book it again for the end of the year as we enjoyed it so much.
    The food wasn't first class but, it was quite acceptable and we enjoyed it.
    I absolutely loved the show which was still showing the Christmas storyline and wouldn't hesitate to go back....if they are still in business!

    Well, I rang Arabian Nights and they say they have no plans for closing the show.
    I have booked for us to go in the New Year :)

    :yes: we were there in January....I got teary eyed at the single black stallion. He was beautifull. Can't wait to go back.
