"Entertaining 2 Hour Variety Show"
Reviewed July, 2016 NEW
My wife and I greatly enjoyed this feature-packed variety program. The cast of dancers, singers, acrobats and comedians made for made the evening fly by. The hosting, acts and talent were reminiscent of some of the best shows I've seen--and certainly placed this show among the best of Pigeon Forge. We attended during a Monday evening performance--and the house was nearly full. The cast is available at the end of the program to meet the audience--a nice bonus.
Tip: Make advance reservations to receive the best seats. Then, arrive early for a prime parking spot. Movie-theater concessions are available in the lobby.

"Best Show Ever!"
Reviewed July, 2016 NEW
My husband and I recently spent a weekend trip to Gatlinburg for our 24th wedding anniversary. There is always something to do in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. This was the first time ever for us to see this show. It was high energy and electrifying! We are already making plans to bring our adult children and watch again! It has a great variety of song selections. It was the most amazing thing to watch!
Tip: Just don't miss this one! It's Awesome!

"Had a BLAST at Smokey Mountain Opry!"
Reviewed June, 2016
First weekend in June, my wife and I met our daughter and her family from Anderson, SC at the KOA Campground in Pigeon Forge. We had our motorhome and they stayed in a cabin. It was rainy so we made reservations through "Reserve Pigeon Forge" to attend the Smoky Mountain Opry on Saturday night. Wow does not begin to describe our experience. Our seats were in the center section about 10 rows back from the stage! The 2-hour show was one of the best variety shows you will see anywhere! Singing, dancing, juggling and comedy was top notch. The grandkids loved the show too! Highly recommended show for the entire family! "Sissy Dog"... You will have to go see the show to get the meaning of that!
Tip: Great seats are available and cost is very reasonable if you combine this show with another to get discount.

This is worth the money to see, music was good, the sky act was very good, but it should be called a variety show, as there is a lot of everything.

"Smoky Mountain Opry Variety Show"
Reviewed June, 2016
My wife and I reserved seats at the Smoky Mountain Opry Summer Variety show and had an excellent time. The show was absolutely spectacular, highly professional, funny, touching, inspirational, and ended with a wonderful tribute to war veterans. While all of the performances were exceptional we were most impressed with the couple who performed acrobatics and high wire stunts that took your breath away. Using Reserve Pigeon Forge was quick, easy and effective. By reserving and paying online we had no difficulties once we arrived at the event. We only had to give our names and our tickets were waiting for us. I would recommend both this site and the Smoky Mountain Opry to anyone wanting to visit Pigeon Forge and the many attractions there. This was our second time at the Opry and it seems to get better every time. Thank you Pigeon Forge Reserve.
Tip: be prepared for a great time

"Awesome Date Night Activity"
Reviewed May, 2016
We went to the Smoky Mountain Opry on May 24th 2016. Normally, I would personally pass on something like this. However, my wife thought this would be a great show to attend. So I told her to book it for our Vacation/Honeymoon. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised at how much I actually enjoyed the show. I can't focus on any one thing as a highlight because everything was Awesome! I would go to this show again, no question! I would however suggest to the cast and crew to add some Southern Gospel quartet style music to the repitoir. Otherwise, it was a very special date night for my wife and I. This was the first actual vacation we've had in nine years, and we never actually had a honeymoon, so this was probably the greatest trip for us, and a big boost for our marriage and our relationship. I would very much recommend anyone to attend a showing of the Smoky Mountain Opry.
Tip: Just bring a healthy appetite for all genres of music.

"Fabulous Varierty Show"
Reviewed March, 2016
This is the best variety show in town! I have been to it twice, as well as the Christmas show. They are all fabulous. The cast is very talented and they mix up their show about every 6 months or so, that way you can go back and see some different acts. They have a comedian, singers, live animals and more. I highly recommend it and if you miss out on this show, you will be sorry!
Tip: Buy tickets here and go to the Hatfields & McCoy's Dinner Show, you get a bonus deal for a great price

An awesome show the entire family enjoyed. My 11 year daughter is still talking about it. The singers and dancers were phenomenal. The only problem is that our seats were resold and we had to move 2 rows back. The seats were still great, but the seats on our tickets were better.

We attended two shows here recently. We saw the Charlie Bob Smith morning variety show. Charlie is very talented and can do great impersonations. We also attended the evening show. Quite impressive. Kind of pricey but well worth it.

"Not what you might be expecting..."
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed August 25, 2016 NEW

The Smoky Mountain Opry is NOT as you might expect, just a second rate copy of the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, but a first rate review that lasts 2 hours plus intermission. While the show does feature Country and Gospel music segments, there are also classic pieces from the 40's to the present, including some excellent impressions by Charlie Bob Smith. Between and sometimes incorporated with the music are aerial acts, comedy and other surprises. This show does not include dinner. You should check local sources for sometimes significant discounts.
