This place was absolutely wonderful. It was the highlight of me and my wife's trip. From the beginning in the carriage room to the exit of the main arena, it was awesome. The carriage room entertainment was absolutely terrific. The main show was very well performed, and definitely top notch. The food was surprising delicious and the service during the show was great. It was a little bit pricey but nothing you would expect from a "dinner and a show" type of place. Plus, what you get for your money is well worth it. We will definitely be returning.

This show is well organized. There are a lot of people to get seated at once and then fed. They do a good job at making this go smoothly. The show was very good, and the food was great.

This was our 3rd time to the stampede, but the first time we have seen the Christmas show. It was really amazing, we were at the Dec. 23rd 6 pm show. Our 5 year old loves this place!! The food is exactly the same as in the regular season, it was excellent but would have like to see maybe something different for the dessert (maybe a little more Christmas related?). I love the fact that the show involves all parts of Christmas and they are not afraid to include Jesus in it and I loved the message Dolly gives at the end, it really warmed my heart. We have always booked the front row and have had a great server each time and i'm sure we will be back!

this show is spectacular! All seats are good, the food is excellent (actually more than you can eat), and the wait staff are friendly and curtious. This is a great evening. reservations are required, and it is a little expensive, but for the dinner and show, we thought it was well worth the price. It is fun for all ages. My husband and I had our grandkids (6 & 8) and our 15 year old as well as his mother (74) with us. All enjoyed it. Consider this on your next vacation to Pigeon Forge.

Show hasn't changed over the last couple of years. You can tell the food is mass produced as it's not that good. Pretty expensive for a family to attend. I can see why kids would like it, but that's it.

Hi Sarah and thanks for your review.
Folks really enjoy our living nativity for the Christmas season and because it is so special to so many we always make certain that it remains an important part of our show.
Our regular season which is about to kick off for 2013 is the most exciting we've had yet! We're showcasing live buffalo, lumberjacks, of course our trick riders and our world famous racing Ostriches are back in 2013!
We do serve a lot of folks all at once but our food is made right there onsite by our chefs and staff so don't worry, we'll never sacrifice the fine flavor of our fabulous four course feast, we want you to keep coming back! Thanks again for your review and we hope to see you again in soon.
