"Excellent Show!!!"
May, 2018 NEW
This is a show for all ages. The performers were amazing and extremely talented. There was a variety of talents showcased and all were very professional. I especially liked the juggler. I have never seen someone juggle so rapidly. The food is good and plentiful and our server was courteous, friendly and quick with his food service. This is really a fun evening and you will be amazed and greatly entertained at the variety of exceptionally talented performers. Don't miss it.

"Great food, great entertainment!!"
April, 2018
My husband and I went to this show last weekend. It was great. The food was very good. Our server was awesome. The show was very entertaining. We recognized Kristen as the first female circus ringmaster at the Barnum and Bailey Circus. We went over to talk to her after the show and she said Dolly called her after the circus and offered her the job!! Awesome move, Dolly. Kristen is great!!

"Captivating Preformers"
April, 2018
The dinner and show were awesome to sa the least. The homestyle meal was delicious and more than enough to satisfy anyone. Our waiter was friendly, courteous, and really on top of his job.
The show, no way to describe the talent and entertainment we experienced that night, it was amazing. The organization by the crew of people is beyond great. Can't wait to return.

"Amazing talent!!! SUPERB show!"
April, 2018
Dolly definitely got it right with this one!!! My family and I went to the early showing this evening and I cannot say enough wonderful things about it. The crew are extremely talented and we were pleasantly surprised at the variety in the show as well. Thank you for setting the bar for entertainment in this area. It was non-stop, clean family fun. We are very grateful for the kind, spirited staff and look forward to telling our friends and family to go see it, too!!! I think it’s awesome that you ask about food allergies and offer a vegetarian and gluten free menu. Super job, ya’ll! BRAVO??

I love Dolly and her music. I enjoyed this show very much but was expecting a little more about her life and experiences in the show and it also would have been nice to hear more Dolly music.

The show was very fast-moving, entertaining, and showcased incredible acrobats. Their skill was quite amazing. The title does not really give an indication of what will be seen.

"Entertaining and Disappointing."
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed May 23, 2018 NEW
Bit of a 50/50 experience with this latest addition to Pigeon Forge's evening entertainment. THE GOOD BITS: Food is acceptable - Acrobat Acts are very entertaining - Show's sound & lighting production is quite professional. THE BAD BITS: Show itself is fairly short (85 mins). Audience is pushed into paltry gift shop arena upon arrival - Pre-Show drinks are expensive - "Servers" are unabashedly open-handed for tips at the end of the show - The 'Mime" sequences during the performance are a throwback from yesteryear, take up way too much of the overall performance time. In a nutshell..? "Could do better".

"Hard to rate"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed May 18, 2018 NEW
Hard to rate,because the acrobatics were good some parts at cirque level. The acrobatic parts where to short. It had more song and dance and to me cheesy, comedic intermission characters than acrobatics which is what I wanted to see. I guess they have to do things for adults and kids of which we are two adults. My husband apparently likes cheesy comedy so he liked that part. There were three intermission acts I liked where they pulled a man from the crowd and got him to mimic their actions and he got into it making it funny. They got two kids to have a fetch race with dogs and three people from the crowd to play instruments on cue. Those I liked,but the rest of the intermissions were to cheesy for me. More audience participation like this would have been funnier for me,but overall I went for the acrobatics which were good but to short in length. The food was good portion size and overall good. I couldn't finish my food. after the show, I noticed people with take out boxes which I would have asked for if I knew that was an option. The Mac and cheese could be better and our coke was already watered down with the ice when he poured it. The waiter was in such a rush to serve his rows of people he didn't stay long enough to ask for coke with no ice so we just drank it. They need servers to only have one row of people instead of two so the waiters can come and ask people if they need anything between different food services. Please don't have the picture people come and stop people from watching the show and eating to buy pictures. I couldn't even look at them well because it was dark. just let us look at them in the lobby. Show only lasted an hour and a half. If the acrobatics were longer it would be more worth the price.

We were in Pigeon Forge a couple weeks ago and decided to take in this show. Glad we did, we weren't disappointed. The entertainment was great, the food was good and there was plenty of it. Our servers did a real good job. The musicians who performed in the pre-show were exceptional. The only thing I would change is to provide eating utensils...I didn't enjoy pulling apart hot chicken with my hands. Other than that.. I would highly recommend it.

"WAY BETTER THAN I THOUGHT"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed May 15, 2018 NEW
I had heard this was a terrible show, but my family wanted to see it, so I reluctantly went. I went with a really bad attitude and when the pre-show started my bad attitude was very apparent. While we ate there was two men doing a comedy skit and I thought, well this isn't too bad. But then the show started, and boy was I surprised. I have a wide range of children, and all of them, my wife, and I were absolutely amazed at what we saw. I don't want ruin it by telling you too much, but it was AWESOME! I can't wait to go back and watch it again. There was so much amazing stuff going on, it would take 2-3 times going to get it all. And the food was great! Their fried chicken was the juiciest fried chicken I think I have ever had. All of the food was great, my favorite was probably the sweet potato, chicken, and well everything! The waiter was fantastic, he was very alert and kept my glass refilled, he even gave me an extra drink, so I wouldn't run out. I highly recommend this to everyone!
