“Wonderful Way to Celebrate ones Birthday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

We where there with a tour group. The performances where wonderful this family is a very talented group of people. While there they were told that it was my 70th Birthday so they made a point of having me stand and be recognized to all those in attendance at their evening show.

“Disappointed!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

Having visited several years ago for the awesome performances in the Premier 2-Hour Show, I eagerly anticipated the History of American Music Show, 3:30 matinee. Tickets were purchased as a group and I relied on second hand information for details. My initial disappointment came when the MC announced it was only an hour show! The music, of course, was supposed to be the highlight, so it’s a shame that the impersonations of various musicians/singers simply didn't do it for either my husband or me. The passion in the performances was missing. The performers seemed to be on "auto-pilot", probably bored and just "going through the motions" on a Saturday afternoon. On "auto-pilot", the job is getting done, but it is without conscious effort and often without intention. Two things are missing when this happens: interest and involvement. Unfortunately, we were both disinterested and uninvolved this time!

“American Mountain Theater - A Must See !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

Excellent – A must see – My wife and I visited Elkins, WV on the weekend to experience the train ride – we learned from some train passengers about the American Mountain Theater so we elected to buy tickets and attend the 7:30 pm show. It was awesome – the music, comedy, skits, and over all talent of the entire group kept us entertained the entire two hours. We plan to bring a group of our friends to experience the American Mountain Theater. Afterwards, the group mingled in the lobby to meet with audience members – Well Done ! Thank you for a great weekend.

“2 night AMT package”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

This was such a wonderful deal for the price. My husband and I enjoyed the show the first night and then on are anniversary we took a train ride followed up with a very nice dinner. I would recommend this trip to anyone, and we will defiantly be back in the future.

“Great Show”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

We really enjoyed the show, great singing! The one thing we did not like was there was a lot of jokes and talking. It was a couple of times doing the show so altogether a good half hour. We would have liked all singing. We will go back to see the 3:30 show and see how that goes.
