The only theme park with southern charm.
Considered one of the world’s premier theme parks, Dolly Parton’s Dollywood features rip-roaring rides, delectable fare, and stellar entertainment—all surrounded by breathtaking views of the Great Smoky Mountains.
From live artists performing country, southern gospel, classic rock ‘n’ roll and Appalachian music, to master craftsmen showcasing glass blowing and blacksmithing, Dollywood is brimming with the rich heritage and artistry of the Smokies.
When it comes to thrilling entertainment for all ages, 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; and FireChaser Express, the nation’s first dual-launch family coaster. Inside Dollywood’s Country Fair—an area specially designed for kids—little ones can enjoy rides perfectly suited for the youngest at heart.
In addition to year-round incomparable entertainment and mouthwatering food, Dollywood plays host to five of the South’s largest festivals, including the Festival of Nations. You’ll enjoy Dollywood’s Barbecue & Bluegrass in the spring and the Harvest Festival with our brand new Great Pumpkin LumiNights in the fall. Both offer delightful concerts and tasty foods that highlight the changing of seasons.
During the summer, cool the family off at Dollywood’s Splash Country—an unforgettably fun summertime water park experience. Plus, the park stays open later for a nightly fireworks extravaganza. And each winter, we hang four million dazzling lights to celebrate Dollywood’s Smoky Mountain Christmas—a ten-time Best Christmas Event winner.
