Dixie Stampede offers two shows in one – a one-of-a-kind Dixie Belle Saloon pre-show and a full-scale arena spectacular with a talented cast of performers, costumed servers, singing and dancing, trick riding with an impressive stable of 32 horses, and the spectacular “Roman Ride of Fire!” Guests are expected to bring a hearty appetite with them as they will be served Dixie Stampede’s traditional four-course feast.
Innovative new lighting technology brings the main arena backdrop to life and features a stunning tribute to the Great Smoky Mountains.

We originally were going to skip this attraction, but it kept coming up on the top 10 attractions to visit while in the area. So, we splurged (about $50 a person) and made our reservation. Let's just say this, at the end of our trip, the whole family said this was the highlight! The food is amazing. The service was top notch. The show was so much fun to watch with great effects, great singing, and some wonderful tricks and TONS of audience participation. My daughter didn't touch her food at all because "I'm so impressed with this." We felt that we got our money's worth with this show and can't way to do it again. I highly HIGHLY recommend doing this if you're in the area.

First time ever in Tennessee this show was fabulous. My 10 yr. old daughter sat in her chair memorized with the show her mouth was open with astonishment. She ate most of her food every thing was cooked perfectly. I have never witnessed such a wonderful show.
My family of 6 with four kids aged 5-14 absolutely loved this show! We enjoyed sitting in the rocking chairs waiting to enter the building then finding a seat upstairs in the carriage house to watch the pre-show. Those guys were fantastic! "Biscuit" was hilarious and boy can he play! My son enjoyed talking music with him afterwards. The kids like the boots you get with your drinks but I must say $2 for a soda refill is expensive. One time I came back with a boot half-full and they added more ice and a quick squirt of the soda gun and still charged me $2 (another employee had told me refills were free). We went inside the arena for the show and the wait staff have their job down to a science. They are so efficient and quick with refills of your drinks. The show was awesome, kids loved the horses and comedy routines. They said this was their favorite evening of our vacation.
