After nearly 10 years of success on the coast of the Carolinas, Dolly Parton’s Pirates Voyage dinner attraction is set to open in Pigeon Forge, Tenn. next spring.
“The show has been so successful in Myrtle Beach that we kept looking at Pigeon Forge and wondering why we didn’t already have a Pirates show there,” said Parton. “We have the perfect location, in one of the hottest areas of Pigeon Forge, and the time is now for my pirates to stake claim to the Great Smoky Mountains!”
When construction is complete, the 21,000-square-foot arena will set the stage for Crimson and Sapphire pirates to battle on the deck, in the water and in the sky above their full-sized pirate ships in a 15-foot-deep indoor lagoon.
The show features acrobatic competitions, live animals and an original music score by Parton and Mark Brymer – all combined to create an immersive and exciting experience for guests to enjoy as they take in a four-course pirate feast.
“We’re glad we can finally share Dolly’s exciting news,” said Jim Rule, CEO of World Choice Investments. “For some time, we have been working on set and costume designs, unique show elements for this theater and animal and staff training. We’re all looking forward to opening in 2019.”
More details on the new dinner show will be released soon. Construction is set to begin in early January, with an opening planned for spring 2019.
