Great evening show! The theater was only half filled. Great musical talent and dancing.. Was thrilled to see " All That", the stomping talent that was a prior semi- finalists on America's Got Talent. Thrilled to secure tickets. We sat in section G, row 7.... Perfect!

This is the best show ever! Great performers, Live Music, good variety and comedy. The show is variety, but takes time to make sure it honors its country roots. Absolutely the nicest theatre you can imagine. Obviously they get first pick on the vocalists and musicians in the area. My wife said it was the best show she had ever... More

I been back to The Carolina Opry the last three years when visiting Myrtle Beach. I would rate the laser show my least favorite, but it appears they've re-formatted it to now include a magic show and tap dancers (named 'All That'). We saw the Good Vibrations Show (now called Time Warp) which, by the way, gave us a preview... More

Went with my wife to Carolina Opry a couple of weeks ago while on vacation in Myrtle Beach to see the Time Warp Good Vibrations show. The show was phenomenal. One of the female singers did the Led Zeppelin song "Black Dog". Would have never thought of a woman to do that song, but I have to say if Led... More

We saw the Good Vibrations show at the Carolina Opry, and enjoyed it greatly. The music was from various eras of music, so there was something for everyone. The performers as usual were just amazing

We went to two different shows here. The Good Vibrations was a treat, and the Grand ole Opry Show was a delight. This theatre is super nice with big seats and plenty of leg room. The performers are all very talented.
