You Don’t Have To Be A Dolly Parton Fan To Enjoy Dollywood


Dolly Parton’s Dollywood is one of the world’s best theme parks, with thrilling rides, scrumptious food, and top-notch entertainment—all set against the backdrop of the Great Smoky Mountains.

Dollywood is bursting with the rich legacy and craftsmanship of the Smokies, from live musicians playing country, southern gospel, classic rock ‘n’ roll, and Appalachian music to skilled craftsmen demonstrating glass making and blacksmithing.

When it comes to thrilling entertainment for all age’s, the park is home to more than 40 rides and attractions that include:
 Lightning Rod, the world’s fastest wooden roller coaster
• Wild Eagle, the country’s first wing coaster
• FireChaser Express, the nation’s first dual-launch family coaster
• Other great rides include Mystery Mine, Blazing Fury, Barnstormer, Daredevil Falls, Thunderhead and more
• Dollywood’s Country Fair, an area specially designed for kids

New rides and attractions at Dollywood include:
Wildwood Grove will have 11 themed experiences full of fun, with indoor and outdoor spaces for people of all ages to play and enjoy. These experiences include: A Treetop Tower, Sycamore Swing, Hidden Hollow play area, Frog and Flies, Black Bear trail, the Mad Mockingbird, Dragon Flier and last but not least, a sparkling Wildwood Tree full of butterflies.

Dollywood has five of the South’s greatest festivals in addition to year-round spectacular entertainment and delectable food. The Festival of Nations is an unique multi-cultural event that showcases traditional music, dance, food, and art from countries all over the world. In the spring, enjoy Dollywood’s Barbecue & Bluegrass Festival, and in the fall, enjoy the Harvest Festival with Great Pumpkin LumiNights, all of which feature beautiful concerts and delectable meals that celebrate the seasons.

Cool off with the family at Dollywood’s Splash Country in the summer—an unforgettably enjoyable summertime water park experience. In addition, the park stays open longer for a weekly fireworks show. Each winter, we string four million sparkling lights to commemorate Dollywood’s Smoky Mountain Christmas, which has won the award for Best Christmas Event ten times.

You don’t have to be a committed Dolly Parton fanatic to enjoy DollyWood, infact far from that! It really has something for everyone. Of course, being a lover of the 9-5 singer may well draw you to her well loved themed park, but we can assure you is isn’t essential.
