Attraction details
Owner description: Time Warp is the all new show in Gilmore’s well-known Good Vibrations series! The best music of the 60s, 70s, and 80s, blended with rich multimedia screens, special effects, and elaborate costuming. This fast-paced, high-energy show will take you back to the decades that brought us the best in American popular music – Journey, Elton John, Whitney Houston, Boston, Led Zeppelin and The Temptations – just to name a few! We guarantee you won’t see anything like this on the Grand Strand!

This show is worth your time & money. It was very professionally done. Beautiful theater, too. Fun music that especially for the baby boomers - but had people of all ages enjoying it.

Loved it; took me back to a time when I loved to dance to the music and the performers were first rate. One of the better shows I've been to at Myrtle Beach.

My wife and I visited The Carolina Opry to take in the Good Vibrations show and left very satisfied. Overall, the production values and talent were excellent, but the cast only performed covers of golden oldies, no original material. This posed a problem in that singers, dancers, and instrumental musicians had better emulate the acts they're mimicking almost perfectly or risk audience disappointment.

Like cruise ship shows, the Good Vibrations cast featured no well-known performers, except for All That!, a clogging quartet featured on America's Got Talent. Unlike cruise ship shows, Good Vibrations has a state-of-the-art set that is a performer in its own right.

Ar first it seemed nothing more than nine backlit steps leading to two platforms. But it moved toward or away from the audience depending on how much stage front was needed for each act. And five of the top steps were actually a turntable that swiveled to expose a piano when the steps weren't needed. Add in the five laser projectors, and you've got the recipe for spectacular staging, which the show used to great effect.

Now back to how well the show covered the acts from the past. In a sentence, there were many, many more hits than misses. Cast members performing James Taylor, Bob Dylan, Shirley Bassey, and Freddy Mercury tunes, for example, hit them out of the park. Not so much the singer who went for James Brown. He had a crew cut and not a hint of gravel in his choir boy voice. Thank goodness no one tried to impersonate Elvis.

All That! delighted every time they appeared on stage. It may seem odd to try to integrate clogging into an oldies review, but it really worked. They especially impressed with their interpretation of Michael Jackson songs, particularly "Billy Jean."

The only true duds of the evening were the comedy routines. At intermission, I overheard an Opry worker say that the comedy acts had been shortened. Too bad they weren't eliminated.

Notwithstanding the excruciating joke telling, the Good Vibrations show is worth the price of admission. Vacationers should put it high on their entertainment agenda.

The singers and dancers did music of the '60s, '70s, and '80s. With the exception of one featured female vocalist, the numbers were outstanding, especially the woman who did the Cindi Lauper impression. The woman who did a Tina Turner song was very poor as the song was unrecognizable because of her phrasing and inability to reach the notes. The male vocalists were very good as were the dancers. The second act focused on country and patriotic music. The comedy act could have been cut entirely as it was a series of lame, unfunny attempt at jokes about women and marriage. Political correctness and respect for women have not yet reached South Carolina's comedians.

Bill & I enjoyed the show very much! We thought the song choices weren't as good this time. We love the singers, but feel they weren't showcased the way they were at the Opry show on Tuesday. That show was amazing! We are from the 60's, 70's era of music, so we thought there were a lot better songs to chose from this season. The Comedy is so fun! I never tire of it, even if some of the humor and skits are from other seasons. "All That" is beyond amazing! Their clogging is wonderful, exciting, just fun! I almost felt, though, that some of the song choices were to accommodate them, rather than showcase the singing talent. Overall, a great show, well worth the money! Spend the extra $15 bucks after seeing the Opry show to see Good Vibrations the next night. You really can't go wrong!
