A trip to Dollywood while in Pigeon Forge, TN is a must! This great attraction has been recognized as one of the world's best theme parks, offering thrilling rides, award-winning live shows, delicious restaurants, seasonal festivals and much more.
The Dollywood theme park also offers bone-rattling roller coasters, such as the Wild Eagle, Barnstormer, Thunderhead and Mystery Mine. There are also plenty of rides for little ones that guarantee a great time. Coming in the Spring of 2016 be on the lookout for the opening of the Lightning Rod, the world's fastest wooden coaster! Based on the idea of a 1950's styled hot rod, this new coaster will launch riders from 0 to 45 mph and 20 stories high and that's just the first airtime moment of the ride. Riders will get to a point where the coaster races down a 165-foot drop at a top speed of 73 mph!
You can spend the whole day there and not worry about packing a lunch! With all of the restaurants that serve an array of delicious Southern cuisine you're sure to be well fed. Choices include everything from full-service dining to a wide variety of concessions.
While in the park you also can enjoy country, bluegrass, classic rock 'n' roll and Southern gospel music. There's with more than 30 performances daily! Plus, after a hot summer day you can go and cool down at Dollywood's Splash Country.
