Attraction details
Owner description: For over 12 years, The Great Smoky Mountain Murder Mystery Dinner Show has been entertaining Pigeon Forge with its unique brand of murder, mayhem, and mystery. Loyal followers including returning tourists and local residents keep coming back for first class entertainment, good food, and “whodunit”! “You’ll laugh ‘til you die!” The Great Smoky Mountain Murder Mystery Dinner Show is a small and intimate theater, which proves perfect for the up close and interactive show it provides. Our traditional, restaurant-style murder mystery plays out all over the dining room, so every seat is the perfect seat. There are four sidesplitting, parody style shows played in repertory each week: Scarlett Reloaded (New for 2017), Moonshine Murders, The Killbillies, and Frankly, Scarlett… You’re Dead! Guests will be given the opportunity to participate in the mystery, either by becoming an audience actor or by solving the murder using the clue packet provided at each seat. New for 2017, Scarlett Reloaded is the sequel to our audience favorite, Frankly, Scarlett… You’re Dead! Moonshine Murders stars the Luke family who have been runnin’ shine in Sevier County but are finding it harder to evade the law with all of the tourists in town. The Clampetts are the stars of The Killbillies who have relocated to Pigeon Forge, where Jed is looking for a new life and a new wife! And then there’s Scarlett and Melody, the not-so-sweet daughters of Colonel Simpson, who is looking to marry-off his two bundles of joy in Frankly, Scarlett… You’re Dead! Your ticket includes our “laugh ‘til you die” murder mystery show with a Prize Package for the Top Sleuth of the night, as well as a three-course dinner with choice of soup and desert topping.

“Our First Experience Won't Be Our Last”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Our first experience at GSM Murder Mystery Dinner Show will not be our last. We've noticed it many times before but just never managed to get there. We did this time & it was great. We were seated at dining tables as if in a club or restaurant because our seating was part of the show. We had our clue packets and were brought our drinks & soup. Everyone was working on their clues & when our soup was done we had a small part of our show pass through the audience. Our meal was served, a baked chicken breast, a piece of glazed pork, smashed potatos, green beans and a roll. Everything was very good. They later served cheesecake with a choice of three toppings. The show was a lot of fun, the acting was surprisingly good, a couple of members of the audience had small parts, everything was easily viewable, you didn't miss any of the action. Very entertaining!!
A great show, a good meal, all in all it lasted about 1 hour and 45 minutes. For a price of just over $40 it was an evening that can't be beat. We'll definitely go again. You should, too.

“The Best Time every time”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

My family and I have been to the Smoky Mountain Murder Mystery Dinner Show seven times over the last few years. It is always great. The entertainment and the food is great. It is a lot of fun and I consider it a "MUST SEE" when you go to Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge. We've seen all of the other shows in the area, and I think that the Murder Mystery show is as good or better than the rest.
