"Awesome"
August, 2016 NEW
We've seen quite a few shows in Pigeon Forge but can't say enough good things about this one. First they are very efficient, meal is brought out in waves so you're not overwhelmed. Servers are super friendly and there immediately if you need anything.
The show.... Wow!!! Constant motion. At no time were you without some kind of entertainment. From acrobatic to wood chopping to dog fetching tricks and everything in between. Wonderful show, wish I could've gotten a CD of the show but they don't offer this. Other than that, we were totally impressed and did pass our feeling onto the GM who happened to be sitting next to us. Super friendly guy btw. If you are going to Pigeon Forge make this one of the must see shows. We booked thru reservepigeonforge.com for our tickets, good prices and great seats
Tip: They serve alcohol for an additional fee.

"Great Show & Dining Experience!"
August, 2016 NEW
I went to Pigeon Forge in July 2016 and purposely made it a point to go to this Dinner Show since it was new and just opened in May. I had seen the older show - LumberJack Feud and enjoyed it, however Dollywood's Twist on this show provided great entertainment for all ages. There is lumberjack competitions, gymnastic/acrobatic acts, dogs tricks, etc. It's a fabulous show and highly recommended. You will not be disappointed. The food is amazing and you get lots of it. You will be stuffed by the time you leave. The wait staff is friendly and works fast to keep things moving. A++
Tip: If you have allergies to dogs be aware and show up hungry!

"Great fun for whole family"
July, 2016 NEW
I went with my daughter and four children on our final night in Tennessee. The kids who ranged in age from 8 to 13 (and who rarely look
Up from their electronic devices) stayed mesmerized the whole time with the fast paced, dancing, comedic, fascinating competition as it unfolded. The dogs were a great addition too! Dinner was delicious and added to our overall great experience.
Tip: Come early but not too early. Someone told us to come an hour early and kids were getting antsy before the show even WITH the entertainment.

"Best family fun"
June, 2016
Dolly's Lumberjack Adventure is a fun, exciting family outings. From the daring acrobatics and lumberjack completions, to the wonderful storyline, you are completely amazed and entertained for the entire event. The food was excellent and our waitress, Emma, was extremely sweet and very professional. Your drink glass was never empty and she was always there to help. Everyone was so friendly and the actors/acrobats greeted everyone at the end and was eager to take pictures with everyone. It's a definite must see for the whole family. We can't wait to go back.

Out of the three shows we saw while visiting, the Lumberjack Adventure was by far the best show. We would definitely go to this show again!
Tip: Don't worry about the way they funnel you in to the room. It really is very well organized and worth every second of the organized chaos.

"OK Show"
June, 2016
Show was ok, food so so. Our waiter was very good and got food out to us in a timely manner. Do not understand the serving of alcohol at a so called family show. I myself would not go again, I would use the money to try another dinner show. Dixie Stampede was much better.
Tip: I would not worry about getting there to early, very crowded and very few places to sit.

"Entertaining but Crowded"
June, 2016
First off, don't book an 8pm show. Right now Lumberjack Adventure is only running a 5:00pm show and we almost missed out because of this. The lady at the box office helped us out when this was an issue however.

The seating is very tight and we were shoulder to shoulder with our neighbors so it was awkward and uncomfortable. One chair could have been removed from each row and it would have been much more comfortable.

Everyone in the show was extremely talented but the storyline was very predictable and cheesy. I liked the lumberjack games portion and the dogs were cute.

Overall, it was nice but I won't be back a second time. It's worth checking out but by far not my favorite show in Pigeon Forge!
Tip: Arrive about an hour ealy for mixed drinks and bluegrass music.

We had a great time at the lumberjack adventure and would definitely go back. We loved the dogs performance. They were so happy and energetic chasing the floats and it seemed that they couldn't wait for more. The performers were great and friendly speaking to everyone as we left. I hope everyone gets a chance to see this show.

"No More Alcohol Please"
June, 2016
The show and the food were very good, but we were very disappointed to see alcohol being purchased and served. Why would anyone even think of adding the sale of alcohol to a faith and family show??? It was not the faith, family, friends place that we thought it would be. We were planning on taking our grandchildren later on, but probably will not now due to the alcohol. Our recommendations: 1) The food, tea, and condiments should be served in a timely manner. 2) Please reconsider the sale of alcohol and keep the show kid friendly.
Tip: Lots of alcohol around children.

Was not happy with the drinks being served in front of my children, not much entertainment, food was not good at all...... Server forgot to bring our chicken out until we were all done which did not take long being the food was horrible. I was so glad when this show was over, will not be back.
Tip: Too much drinking going on for small children and food is not good they will not eat it.

June, 2016
I have been to the old Lumberjack Show and Dinner so my Family decided to go see this new show since Dolly had this Lumberjack ,I am Supprised to see men and women walking around with a bottle of beer drinking with Children all around and it a Family show I found it very distasteful for me and also the part of Granny should have been played by a Granny and not by a man . The whole experience was not what I expected and Dolly Being over The New Lumberjack.

"Fun but not great for little kids"
May, 2016
My family of five just went to this show tonight, our kids ages 8, 6, and 4. Our kids haven't had many non-pbskids viewing experiences, so while this show was mostly good for them, there were a few parts that were too scary/creepy. There were subplots about Bigfoot, and also about a witch and monsters who lived in the forest. It was done in a fairly cartoony way, but for young kids (mostly my 4 yr old) still learning to differentiate between fantasy and reality, those parts were just too much. One has already awakened tonight because she's scared of the witch.
Those parts aside, the acrobatics and dancing and the competition between sides was a lot of fun and I'm glad we went! Great food, too! Wish we weren't told to arrive an hour early though; mostly just a lot of waiting in the middle of a large crowd...not my favorite with kids in tow. Overall, a fun experience that I would totally recommend if storylines about witches and monsters won't be a problem for your kids!
Tip: The seating is spaced pretty close together so prepare to be a little cozy with your neighbor.
