      About this trip

       The critically acclaimed bestselling novel Water For Elephants comes to vivid life on Broadway in a unique, spectacle-filled new musical.

      After losing what matters most, a young man jumps a moving train unsure of where the road will take him and finds a new home with the remarkable crew of a traveling circus, and a life—and love—beyond his wildest dreams. Seen through the eyes of his older self, his adventure becomes a poignant reminder that if you choose the ride, life can begin again at any age.

      Directed by Tony Award®️ nominee Jessica Stone (Kimberly Akimbo), with a book by three-time Tony nominee Rick Elice (Jersey Boys, Peter and the Starcatcher) adapted from Sara Gruen’s novel, and a soaring score by the acclaimed PigPen Theatre Co., Water For Elephants unites innovative stagecraft with the very best of Broadway talent in an authentic and deeply moving new musical that invites us all to give ourselves to the unknown.

      UPDATE……I received a call from Gary today (Wednesday 10 Jul) and an apology. I appreciate him reaching out to me. So….I want to share with you all my experience with Gary “Fun on Wheels” tours… I booked my son and I on the 7 July trip to Yankee Stadium – “Club Suite” trip…. While on the bus heading to Yankee stadium Gary made his normal announcements to all including providing his cell phone number so if we encounter any issues, we could call him. He also mentioned during his announcement if you want your digital ticket for entry into Yankee stadium send him a text message with name and email address and he will forward your ticket via the MLB Ballpark app to your MLB account to facilitate entry into the stadium. As many already know, and I as well since my sons and I have gone to several MLB games over the past few years, ticketing is digital with each person’s ticket visible in the “MLB Ballpark” app on a smart phone. Well no problem for me I thought as I am very familiar with the MLB app and how to use digital ticketing….. so an hour passes, and Gary makes another announcement that all tickets have been sent….. well I did not receive our tickets…so I walk to the front of the bus and talk to Gary about this predicament….he assured me he had sent the tickets electronically….we both examine the transfer action he performed on his phone and I discover he had mis-typed my email address so the tickets would never appear in my MLB Ballpark app account…by his own admission there were issues with 10+ customers on the bus…he assured me he would contact MLB and recall those tickets that were missing back to his MLB account on his phone…..fast-forward to arrival at Yankee Stadium there was much confusion once getting past the ticketing gate waiting on Gary who single handedly had control of all tickets on his phone. Many tour participants waited not knowing where to go next. There were several Gary Tours employees also standing alongside us, none of whom were briefed on what instructions to provide tour participants on where to go next or how to get to the Club Suite section. I had a bad feeling about this as my past experiences with sporting venues using digital ticketing you need to show your digital ticket for entry to your seating section…this is common practice employed at every sporting event (Baseball, Hockey, etc) I have attended in the recent past. Well Gary (who as I mentioned held all tickets on his phone) was still not past security we were instructed by Gary Tour employees to go up the elevator to the Suite level….That bad feeling I had just got worse because I knew we were going to have an issue entering the Club Suite level without a digital ticket….Fast-forward again once we arrived at the elevator to the suite level outside the Hard Rock Café there was no Gary Tour employee to assist with entry. The security person at the elevator indicated we could not go up to the Club Suite without proof of a digital ticket (I knew this would happen) …so I texted Gary on his phone several times…no text was answered (but was read as indicated on my iPhone)…I begin calling his phone several times….no answer…I left voice mail…no reply….no assistance from Gary or any Gary Tour employee….after waiting about 45 minutes I was so frustrated I told my son we might just need to watch the game standing on the walkway behind box seating (mind you I paid over $600 to enjoy a Suite level seating)…finally around the 3rd inning my son was able to get someone to answer Gary’s phone and they sent an employee downstairs to show security the digital ticket and assist us with entry to the Club Suite…at that point we missed about a third of the game….once inside the Club Suite Gary made no apology for what we went through…he did not approach my son and I and apologize for what had happened…..We were left stranded without assistance….this situation would not have occurred if Gary had typed my email correctly when transferring the digital tickets in the MLB Ballpark app. My wife and I have traveled on several Gary “Fun on Wheels” Tours with groups from our community (Niagara Falls 2023, Boldt Castle 2024, Atlantic City 2023, Lancaster 2023) over the last couple of years and we did enjoy ourselves, but this trip was truly a disappointment.

      We had a great time with very nice people, a great local guide and lots to do. The weather was terrific and the food was fine except for dinner on the second night, it was a terrible restaurant with bad food and even worse service. We were very happy overall and look forward to more fun vacations with Gary’s Tours!
