Excellent! Great fun for the whole family. The trainers obviously care very much for the bears, who are trained humanely and with love. The jokes are corny but amusing, and the bears do some pretty fantastic work. This is a great show.

Excellent show that was the best attraction at Clarks. All of the bears looked great and were certainly talented as they performed many stunts. There were a few good jokes during the show, but a few of them were a bit corny.

I havent been to Clarks in quite a few years, but what I do remember is that this was easily the highlight of my day. The entire show takes place is a good-sized arena. Any seat has a great view of the action. Just make sure you get a seat because this is a very popular show. Well Clarks trains these bears correctly and they preform very well. The stunts themselves are incredible and then the trainers incorperated humor also into the show. The black bears and the trainers seem very happy to do the show. Also the show is pretty long. If you ever go to Clarks, you cant possibly miss this show.

The layout of the cage and arena is well done. You can see from just about every position. Unfortunately there is very little shade (this definitely detracted from the show on the rather hot day I was there). The biggest disappointment came when the bears did not seem to want to perform, they just strolled around the cage and didnt listen to the trainer. Maybe it was breading season... (?) Anyway, this show seems to have gotten good reviews in the past, so I may have hit them on a bad day. Also, my sister has seen the show in the past with a similar problem but not quite as bad. My only warning is to be prepared as it seems to be hit-or-miss. I wouldnt make any special trips.

I remember being amazed at these bears. I was however a little nervous that they had electric wire at the top of the fences. I mean, if theyre trained, why do they need shocking wires?

Aside from that, the show is extremly entertaining, and the bears are very well trained.

An educational and entertaining show led by Murray Clark and his sister Maureen. You can tell that the family really cares for these bears. Any plenty of corny jokes (apparently a Clarks tradition). Any errors by the bears are covered up quickly by Murrays wit. Are they really errors or planned disobedience on the part of the bears?

The Trained Bear Show is the star attraction at Clarks Trading Post. Located to the right of the parks entrance sits a large arena where the Trained Bear Show takes place. Get your seats early as the stadium fills up quickly because this is the parks most popular attraction by far. Sit as close as you can. All the black bears are well bread and are beautiful. The bears are very intelligent and do a variety of stunts and tricks during the show, including rolling on a wheel and playing a little basketball. You get a very long and entertaining show that people of all ages will enjoy. I highly recommend this show to everyone.

I would not miss this for the world! It is the best! You are really close to the action, and the show is so very entertaining! And you can tell that there is a real bond between the Clarks and the bears.

It was a pretty good show, but I do not think it is that great of a show. It seemed to me that they didnt really know what they were doing for some reason.

Good old New England humor and a great personality between the Clarks and the bears make this show a classic. I have not missed seeing this show each summer of my life.
