Does Billy Bob’s have a mechanical bull?
Contrary to what many people believe, we do NOT have a mechanical bull- not even when we first opened in 1981!
We prefer the real thing. Check out our live professional bull riding performances every Friday & Saturday night at 9 & 10pm. Admission is $4.00.
We also have a Photo Bull available for guests to have their picture made to take home as a souvenir.
Can anybody ride a bull at Billy Bob’s Texas?
Bull riding is a dangerous sport and Billy Bob’s requires competitors to be pro or semi-pro athletes with a valid rider’s card from a recognized Bull Riders sanctioning organization such as your state PRCA, CBR, or other institution.
Bulls generally weigh 1,800-2,000 pounds compared to the weight of most bull riders at 150 pounds. You can’t just have a few beers and ride a bull or dare your buddy to ride at Billy Bob’s!
