1. Aerial Act

In 2022, we added a new aerial act to the show, and it quickly became a favorite among everyone who visited. This special act combines our equestrian stars with breathtaking aerial acrobatics. It begins with our performers riding horseback into the arena. After they take a lap around the Stampede, the performers’ aerial talents take them to new heights above the arena floor. The best part is that while the act takes place, an original Dolly Parton song titled “Wild Horses” echoes throughout the arena. The song sets the scene for this incredible act.

2. Roman Ride of Fire

Another one of our most popular tricks at our Pigeon Forge dinner show is the Roman Ride of Fire. This trick is a long-standing favorite among our audience members. Watch as our talented horses and a trick rider circle the arena before galloping right through a ring of fire! The trick involves two horses moving side-by-side with the rider standing astride both horses. With one foot on each horse, our trick rider performs a series of fast-paced maneuvers as they split columns of fire before leaping through the ring of fire.

3. Fire Breathing Trick

The Roman Ride of Fire isn’t the only fire trick in our show! We also have an impressive fire breathing trick you don’t want to miss. Our firebreather leaves the audience amazed as they wonder how he does it!

4. Barrel Trick

If you love magic tricks, the barrel trick at Dolly Parton’s Stampede will be your favorite! It involves a member of the audience helping Skeeter, our resident comedian, pull one over on our emcee. You’ll be left wondering how he managed to pull off the trick as the audience member climbs out of a different barrel than the one they started in. You won’t believe your eyes!
