I have been to the Carolina Opry several times in the past. It is always an entertaining show. What made this show extra special was the tap/clogging group from America's Got Talent. They added something new and sensational to the whole experience. Seats where very comfortable. We saw both the Carolina Opry and Good Vibrations. Too much alike. Also think... More

The show was excellent. Brad Long and all the singers were just great. My husband and I would definitely see a show there again. Well worth it. A fun time and the staff was friendly and gracious for sure! I personally enjoyed the cloggers - these guys have such great talent - I could have watched them all night! You... More

My wife and I have been visiting Myrtle Beach and seeing the Carolina Opry for over 15 years. The show has always been good. But, this year, the regular season show is all new and really amazing! Using extremely talented singers, dancers, musicians, and comedians, the show is totally entertaining from beginning to end. My only complaint is that a... More

My husband and I just attended The Carolina Opry 7 p.m, performance. The show began with a professional soloist performing at 10 minutes prior to the 7 p.m. show. She was great! One of the songs she sang was "Somewhere Over the Rainbow." Following were well rehearsed performances including background media and exciting lighting. The singing, dancing, costumes, and sets...

Saw both shows . I love, love All That , the Clogging Dance Team. They are simply amazing. My favorite is the young lady who does Cindy Lauper impression of Girls Just Want to have fun. She also did an amazing rendition of I'll Always Love You. Great Show

Our group watched the new "Thunder and Light" show today at The Carolina Opry. We were absolutely blown away by the amazing talent of the "All That" cloggers, dancers, magic act, and the amazing vocals of Bibis Ellison. It was a high energy show, about 1 hour in length, that made the audience feel as though they were on stage... More

I can honestly say this is the ONLY show where you can see clogging routines choreographed to Michael Jackson's music as well glow-in-the-dark clogging. This high energy show is anchored by the world famous clogging team "All That" featured most recently on America's Got Talent and is a perfect mix of upbeat music, colorful lights, and dance. The Opry recently... More

The music was great as well as costumes and scenery. They just added new seating and it was comfortable. Where ever you sat you could see the show. Recommend this show to all.
