Great Smoky Mountains Murder Mystery Dinner Show Overview

A word of advice for any show in Pigeon Forge is to call and reserve your tickets as you may be disappointed when you get there and they are sold out.  They do have ample parking so many guests reserve the Great Smoky Mountains Murder Mystery Dinner Show for large parties.  They do recognize anniversaries and birthdays during the performance.

I was able to get tickets for “Moonshine Murders” and it is a dinner show so come hungry.

From when I called to book my tickets, when I arrived at the theater, when I was seated, all throughout the show and until I left the staff were very polite, helpful, friendly and very welcoming. I knew I was in the right place for an enjoyable evening

If you are looking for a “Good ole country folk” caper then this is your jazz!! The show includes the audience to play certain parts and is performed around your tables which really brings it to life, with humour and of course mystery.

When I was seated I was directed to a piece of paper with several puzzles on it which actually turned out to be clues to find out “Who dun it”. They were really good clues if you had the answers correct!!

Without giving too much away, you will recognize a lot of similarities between this show and a very popular tv show from back in the day. I thoroughly enjoyed my evening at the Great Smoky Mountains Murder Mystery Dinner Show, I laughed and enjoyed good company, the food was okay too.

Planning for Great Smoky Mountains Murder Mystery Dinner Show

We suggest arriving 45 minutes prior to show time for any pre-show drinks ranging in costs from $3.50-$4.50 plus tax. Upon entry you are seated at a table that can accommodate your party of 8 or less.  Larger parties may be split so be ready to let the hostess know how you will be seated.  A sleuth book is provided to give clues that includes puzzles you use to figure out who is the criminal.  Those who are the “Super Sleuth” for the evening area awarded a free picture and a picture with the entire cast.  The Murder Mystery Dinner Shows do include periodic blackouts as part of the script so hold small children close.  All shows are also rated PG-13 for adult innuendos but the complex does welcome children with open arms.  Patrons are not required to participate but becoming involved does make the show more fun.  Be sure to purchase one of the many items in the gift shop.  All attendees are welcome to meet the cast and have them sign autographs after the shows.  We suggest purchasing the backpack as a souvenir.  The price is $7.99 and works well carrying small items for the rest of your Pigeon Forge vacation.


Guests are not allowed to take pictures during the show.  Upon entry to the show you are directed to a special location for a themed picture and prop. Candid photos are snapped throughout the show to feature the cast and even your table members.    A CD with all photos can be purchased for $20 or a framed family photo from entry can be purchased for $10 for one or $15 for two.
