The Rhinestone Roper Show

IMG_3160

The Rhinestone Roper Show is a death-defying interactive Wild West traveling show, entertaining and thrilling audiences coast-to-coast, border-to-border for over 18 years. The show has it all – intricate trick roping, precision knife throwing and bullwhip cracking, fancy gun spinning and fast-draw shooting. Featured in the show are stunts by amazing trick horses Gypsy Rio and Jesse James. You may have seen them make the Quarter Finals on America’s Got Talent.

Champion showman Dan Min, The Rhinestone Roper – a true master in “the tools of the cowboy” – has revised the old-fashioned Wild West show, delighting and educating family audiences about a bygone era. His world-class skills, signature cowboy humor, and knowledge of old west lore are woven into a 45-minute show full of music, laughs, and audience participation. Dan, a former chief deputy prosecutor, hails from Jerome, Idaho.

Dan is pleased to introduce his wife Yvonne and daughter Emilee. Yvonne descends from the Mescaloro Apache Nation of New Mexico. She not only performs with ropes, whips and knives but also shoots aerial targets with a pistol while spinning on the “Wheel of Death.” 14 year old Emilee surprises audiences as well with her trick roping and knife throwing.

Shows daily at 12pm, 2pm, and 5pm

Granpa Cratchet Outhouse MiniMobile

When you think of the good ole days, what comes to mind? When the only computer game was Pong? When a telephone and a camera were still two separate things? How about when there was no indoor plumbing? You can probably hear your kids saying, “What? That was back in the ice age!” Well Granpa Cratchet is coming to our event and he’s not going to let anyone forget the good old days or how good they have in the good new days. Granpa is a lively old coot you’ll find driving around our event in his miniature, motorized outhouse! You heard me right. It’s a souped up two seater on wheels. If you don’t see him coming you might just smell him coming or you’ll hear him yelling across the grounds, “Watch out! Old man in outhouse coming through!” Now there’s a line you don’t hear every day!

Granpa will be driving around in his outhouse everyday at our event telling lots of silly jokes, one liners and stories from the good old days. Granpa says, “My outhouse is equipped with a fully blown 454 high rise manifold under a Holly 4 barrel double pumper carb powering a twin dual overhead cams pushing an atomic drive splitter transmission with four on the floor, three in the trunk and two dragging behind. And wait till you get a load of my computerized, transistorized, hydro powered, voice activated toilet stool flusher.”

Granpa’s outhouse gives new meaning to the old phrase, “You can’t take it with you.” Granpa most certainly does with lines like, “Have catalogue – will travel.” Take my word for it, this show really stinks, but in a good sort of way for both parents and kids. He has lots of great one liners and teaches great lessons parents love like the golden rule or do your chores.

Granpa likes to say, “Why go to the bathroom when your bathroom can go to you? Granpa said, “Last week I was in the Atlanta Septic Tank Cleaners parade, but it’s always getting backed up. If you know what I mean!” He always laughs hilariously at all his own jokes. He said, “The parade features honey wagons and manure spreaders, all floats must be covered in toilet paper and instead of throwing candy at the crowd they throw small rodents and air freshener.” Granpa once asked one kid if he knew what an outhouse was, and he replied, “That’s where mom sends Dad when he’s been bad.”

It’s the best of clean family entertainment (pun intended) mixed in a package of total silliness that’s sure to create lots of smiles. Come on out and enjoy Granpa in his miniature, motorized outhouse along with all the other great food, games, rides and entertainment at this year’s event. If you want a sneak preview visit our web site or key word Granpa’s outhouse on Youtube.
