    My friend is usually hard to please as his tastes in Music and entertainement are very different from the majority of people and had poor experience of Vivid previously. He was absolutely ecstatic with this birthday surprise and raved about everything on the night:presentation and comfort to enjoy a great meal, the show captivated his attention and the Vivid drone Show was the icing on the cake, well done Showboat!!! What a Night with you!!

    I wanted to share my showboat experience my group and I recently attended. Despite the drone show not taking place, we had an amazing time. The entertainment provided throughout the evening was fantastic. The food served was exceptional. Additionally, the backdrop of city lights added a beautiful ambiance to the entire experience. Overall, we had a wonderful time and wanted to commend the staff above all for a memorable evening.
