This show featuring the friendly purple dinosaur from children’s TV takes places in an indoor theater made to look like a city park, where leaves and snowflakes fall from the sky. Barney, BJ, and Baby Bop star and encourage everyone in the crowd to get up and sing and dance during this 20-minute show. After the show, explore Barney’s Backyard, an indoor play area.


A sing-along show and the only place in the world where your youngster can meet the purple dinosaur in person! There is also a small indoor playground designed for very young kids called Barney’s Backyard in the same building. This is an attraction that the littlest ones can enjoy. It's best for preschooler and toddlers. Because, let's face it. Barney is an outdated IP that no one really watches by 2017, that's just a fact and this show is just average as there are way better educational, fun shows for children then this one. Kids should still enjoy this for what it is. Only see this if you have kids. 6/10
Is Barney a hot, current IP that is burning it up in 2017? No. Does that mean little kids won't fall under the spell of this charming theater in the round (and spectacularly Air Conditioned) in a park like setting? No. I suspect Barney, Baby Bop and BJ's days are numbered as UO continues to replace established attractions with the new and now. That's OK. However, if you have a young one in your life who has never seen this presentation, take them before it's too late.
I second themeparks98's comment...WHY S IT HERE? Is this awful show even on TV anymore? I so agree that it's presence doesn't help USO!
So, why is this attraction still in USO? It's pretty obvious no one likes or cares for this, take it out. It's presence really doesn't help USO.
