Pigeon Forge, Tennessee is known for beautiful, scenic sights, such as the Smoky Mountains, but it is also home to some of the greatest shows around. You may be familiar with the Dixie Stampede, the “most fun place to eat,” but there are a variety of other spectacular shows that Pigeon Forge is proud to claim. The shows have something for everyone, from boot tappin’ country tunes to the Elvis Presley hits that reached a nation. It’s not all about the music, though; the Cirque De Chine Acrobatics Show features high-risk stunts, flips and more. A visit to the Pigeon Forge area cannot be successful until you have seen at least one of these amazing shows.
Laugh out loud, feel your toes tap along to the beat and enjoy the array of patriotic and gospel hits at Country Tonite. Country Tonite is a show that is packed with two hours of comedy, music and sheer talent. It has been named the “Best Live Country Show in America” and the “Best Show in the Smokies.” Join the young and talented cast members, the state-of-the-art sound and lighting equipment and the unexpected performances that will make your jaw drop. As you watch the stage light up with electric talent, you’ll learn some new favorite hits in gospel and patriotic melodies. If you’re looking for a show that will entertain and make you feel good, this is the one to see.
Or, when you take your seat at the Back to the 50’s Dinner Show, rock out to the King of rock ‘n roll and “Grease Lightning.” As the cast members don their poodle skirts, letterman jackets and leather getups, you’ll feel as though you’ve somehow gone back in time to the 1950s. This energetic show not only has a talented cast of singers and dancers, but also an Elvis impersonator, Matt Cordell. When Cordell takes the stage, you’ll swear the King is performing right before your eyes. Before the show, grab a delicious dinner buffet of barbecue pork and chicken, as well as baked beans, potato salad and more.
A spectacular feat of motorcycles, “Hoop Divers,” flight and more awaits you at the Smoky Mountain Palace during the Cirque De Chine show. Since 2007, this performance has been electrifying the stage and astounding audiences with acrobatic stunts. For two hours, you’ll be hanging onto the edge of your seat as a vibrant array of set and costume colors flies, soars and races past your eyes. Goosebumps will crawl across your arms as you watch the incredible, and yet terrifying, acts of the “Butterfly Lovers,” who fly through the air in phenomenal stunts, and the “Hoop Divers,” who leap through hoops up to ten feet high. A shiver will run down your spine as the “Five Flying Motorcyclists” enter the 26-foot steel globe of danger on their bikes. Adventure, danger and spectacle mix in with the talent of these performers for an incomparable show.
