I don’t know who from the RODEO committee thought that having electronic tickets without having WIFI access was a good idea!!!! When they perfectly Know that when the rodeo is overwhelmingly packed the network becomes USELESS, Make it make sense!! Today was so FRUSTRATING to say the least. I bought 4 packs and I couldn’t load my tickets while at the rodeo, i asked for help and they redirected me to guest services. It turns out that the waiting time to get some kind of help from someone was 1-2 hour waiting time since EVERYONE in that line where having the same issue as I was, their tickets weren’t loading and there was no access to wifi and the phone network was useless. I visit the rodeo every year, but with this experience I don’t think I will set my foot there for many years to come, especially if they keep this electronic CRAP going!
This app is the worst designed app I have seen yet. All the app is good for is for tickets, half of the functions and buttons do not work. The information is not complete. Important information such as parking entrances, parking fees and what is required is missing, one would think that if I click the “how to get here “ tab, that the required directions would be there, not this app. All you get is the status of two or three lots. Makes for a horrible Rodeo Experience!!!!
I would give zero stars if possible. This app is the absolute worse. First off, it’s nearly impossible to access it. Had to exit app several times and retry just to get it to load. Definitely couldn’t access all of the coupons that we have used faithfully in the past. The rodeo carnival needs to do better with network and Wi-Fi signals and educate the people at guest services and the information desks so that they are able to help.
I have tried to verify my purchased half price tickets on the app and I cannot. I tried to verify my tickets but the account I created in the app does not request a phone number. I cannot find account settings in the app that will let me enter phone number details. The email sent to verify tickets requires a phone number. I need this fixed before I can use the tickets I purchased.
Rodeo starts tomorrow and there’s no schedule on the app. Lineup has been out since January but it’s not available on the app. Can’t view or buy tickets. About the only thing that works is the map. Pretty useless right now, which is disappointing because it was handy in previous years.
This is such a great app to have for the Houston Rodeo! I love how you can set a up a schedule, how you can see all the events, and where to park! This is so useful! If you are going to be at the Houston Rodeo, you MUST download this app!!
I bought 6 half price books so trying to navigate all of those coupons was difficult. Once the coupon was used, it should have disappeared from my screen. Instead I had to guess each time which one to use and it was so time consuming.
No direct links to buy concert or any event tickets via the schedule. Useless App. No where near as good as last years. They should've simply updated the 2012 version. One star only because I have to rate it with something. *****Update Feb 26th: thanks for fixing the app. The direct link to buy tickets is most appreciated and much improved.
This app will not send the text needed to complete my registration. I purchased carnival packs that I cannot access b/c the app won’t let me complete the registration process. I’ve emailed customer service with no response. Selling tickets that no one can access and having a no refund policy is theft.
App is already running slow on home wifi, what’s going to happen when I get out to NRG! The cell networks out there are usually overwhelmed with the concentration of people & don’t work well, and now carnival tickets are on the app. Ikes!!
This app is terrible! I have been trying for a half an hour to find tickets to the rodeo itself, but can only seem to get tickets to the shows. Additionally, it asked for my cookie choice about six times! I don’t allow targeting or advertising cookies, I confirm my choices, and the next thing you know, it askes for my cookie setting again! Get your act together, rodeo Houston! Find someone who knows how to construct a website!!!!!!!
Go back to regular tickets. Takes forever to download and doesn’t work properly once it finally loads. Now everyone must carry a smart phone to ride or to buy food if they have a carnival pack. Bad idea.
The new update made this the worst app. No longer are the times and scores posted for each contestant. Plus it is virtually impossible to switch between events. You are stuck with just reviewing tie-down roping. Seriously?
