Update 12/4: With the KY Governor’s restrictions on indoor restaurant dining still in effect on December 12, our ability to deliver the Brunch with The Grinch experience as originally imagined has changed.  Although we are able to accommodate all of the recommended safety guidelines and have plenty of space to safely distance our guests, the original sit-down Brunch with The Grinch is too close to restaurant-style dining.  Not wanting to cancel it entirely, we have instead tweaked it. We are responding with a newly imagined event that we hope will give your family a memorable Christmas experience and follow our state’s guidelines.  Please keep reading to discover our brand new "Grinch Reimagined".

New and reimagined!  Grinch Reimagined (formerly Brunch with the Grinch) is a Wholiday jubilation that will take place on December 12 at 9:30 AM and 11:30 AM.  (A specific arrival time for your party will be emailed to you closer to the event.)  Upon your arrival, you will find a safe, socially-distanced, private, magical experience awaiting you!  Your party will be taken on a staff-guided private tour of The Carson Center's “Whoville” where you will meet our special guests Cindy Lou Who, Santa, and of course, The Grinch.  Crafts, photo-ops, character meet and greets, Christmas lights, music, a delicious brunch* to-go, treats for the children and more are planned for your adventure! (If the weather is nice, you're invited to enjoy your brunch on the lawn in our comfortable Adirondack style chairs.)

Your reservation includes an invitation to return to the Carson Center for The Grinch (2018) at 11 AM, Tuesday, December 15, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas (with Jim Carey) at 6 PM OR a voucher to be used for a future movie.  We will have a variety of family movie screenings on our stage December 14-18 and then many more in the months to come.  

Regular Reserved: $20/person

SPECIAL OFFER: A limited number of VIP reservations are available.  VIP guests will be given first entry into Grinch Reimagined, a 2020 Grinch souvenir ornament, and a specialty drink.  VIP: $35/person

*Brunch is a catered meal packed to go.  You will have a choice of two catered meal options: 1) The Who-ville Breakfast (Grinch pancakes, sausage links, fruit cup, beverage) or 2) The Mount Crumpit (Breakfast casserole, roasted potatoes, sausage links, fruit cup, beverage).  Upon exiting the Grinch experience you will receive your hot, pre-ordered meals, utensils, and beverages all packaged for you to enjoy outside on our lawn (weather permitting).
