Smoky Mountain Adventures Christmas
To end the first leg of our road trip, we decided to attend a dinner show tonight in Gatlinburg. In the spirit of Christmas, we chose Smoky Mountain Adventure Christmas and it did not disappoint! Before even walking through the door, brilliant Christmas lights and giant decorated trees welcomed us.
While we waited for the theater doors to open, the kids wrote letters to Santa and played table size checkers. The gift shop and snack bar are available to pass the time as well.
Our server greeted us immediately and before I knew it the big kids we already enjoying their first of many Pepsis. Water is our typical beverage so when they have a pop included they get all sorts of crazy excited! Since my meal was gluten free, it came out before the rest of the dinner service started.
The food portions are huge and the taste was reminiscent of a home-cooked meal from Grandma’s. My gluten free meal consisted of baked chicken, ham, steamed veggies, half of a baked potato, fruit cocktail, corn on the cob, and a roll. For dessert I received the most delicious ginger cookie. The standard meal included fried chicken, ham, stuffing, corn on the cob, creamy veggie soup, sweet potato casserole, a biscuit, and an apple turnover. There was so much food that it took Logan all but two minutes of the show to finish his meal. I guarantee you will not leave hungry!
The show is very high energy. Some of the acts included a silly musical elf, a human hamster wheel, figure skating, acrobatics, stunt dogs, the bluegrass nutcracker, and a live nativity scene. The level of talent in this theater was amazing! Costumes were vibrant, performers flooded the stage, and music was playing. Guests were clapping their hands to the beat and cheering with great enthusiasm.
Our favorite acts were the human hamster wheel, the air acrobatics, and the live nativity.
While the show was fantastic, the look on my children’s faces as they were watching this all unfold was another kind of magic. Going to this show was a bit of an investment that proved to be worth every penny as my children were staring at the performing and listening to the true meaning of Christmas. We all fully enjoyed our time at Smoky Mountain Adventure Christmas and highly recommend you visit with your family as well.
