“True, emotional connections come not only from your narrative, but from the ongoing one in people’s heads and hearts that goes on all the time.  The extent to which you can become part of that internal conversation will largely determine your success.”

The most powerful impression you can make on guests is found in immersive experiences. Amusement parks, destinations, and corporate events worldwide are looking to create an atmosphere that actively engages guests. Long gone are the days of spectator events. With theme parks like Disney World leading the way and television shows such as Westworld inspiring imagination, individuals are craving an interactive experience relevant to their personal desires. 

When hosting an event in Texas consider an immersive experience. The word "Texas" represents more than just the name of a place. It expresses an attitude of independence, cowboys, authenticity, and friendly people. Texas has a noble and proud history. When guests from across the country, or around the world, come to visit they want to participate in the culture: riding horses, shooting pistols, and dressing in costume. Lagniappe Productions has been forging the way in interactive 1880’s themed wild west entertainment for the last 40 years. Notable clients include Sea World, Six Flags, Washington State Fair, and Stone Mountain theme park. Coast to coast, crowds love an immersive western experience. For a true taste of Texas at your next event, here are just a few suggestions from one of the leading production companies in the state.

Interactive Theater: A comedy murder mystery dinner is an excellent unique dining and/or team building experience. Authentically-costumed characters can interact with your guests as the show unfolds. Custom information about your company can be woven into the tapestry of the script bringing funny, relevant touches to an immersive entertainment experience. Guests get the opportunity to interrogate suspects and vote for who they believe to be the real killer. For murder mystery aficionados, the show presents intrigue and challenge to their investigative skills. For those who just want to have dinner with some fun, there is more hilarity than you can imagine!

Team Buildings: Team building events take on a whole new dimension when the facilitators are 1880's characters who guide guests through activities such as calf roping, quick draw, or outhouse horseshoes to name a few. These team building challenges are fun activities that require all the elements of a traditional team building to succeed and yet create a lasting impression on guests.

Cowboy College: Cowboy College is an uncommon one-of-a-kind adventure where guests learn the three basic skills to be a real cowboy: how to rope, ride, and shoot. This is not utilized as a team building event but rather an opportunity for guests to challenge themselves, rise to the occasion, and have a hands-on experience with these skills from the Wild West. Guests are taught by professional cowboys and each receive a diploma upon graduation.

Old West Characters: Whether it's the Saloon Girl, Miss Behaving, teaching line dance lessons; or the legendary Marshal Jim Courtright hosting a scavenger hunt; 1880's Texas themed characters transport guests back to the iconic period of the American Wild West. This added dimension opens guests’ imaginations to create memories that will last a lifetime. 

The key to the success of your next immersive event lies in the connection to the individual, engaging their imaginations, and giving it a voice they can hear on a personal level. Lagniappe Productions, voted “Best Entertainment in Texas” by Texas Meetings + Events Magazine readers, offers 26 various entertainment options as well as a team of creative individuals ready to customize for any corporate event, fair/festival, or amusement park.
