Dollywood, Pigeon Forge

4.3
Dollywood sits in the verdant foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. Owned by country singer Dolly Parton, the venue offers standard amusement park thrill rides, as well as attractions with traditional crafts and music of this region. The park frequently features musical events, with regular appearances by Dolly herself. You can choose from ten themed areas packed with roller coasters, rafting rides, craft exhibits, carousels, water-toboggan rides, and live shows. The park's signature attraction is a narrow-gauge train pulled by two steam locomotives. Try to plan for a stop at the museum dedicated to gospel music. It has an interactive video and sound clips, plus thousands of items belonging to the genre's biggest names.

  • The park was awesome. The thrill rides were amazing and the shows were very enjoyable. Prices were fair for food and drinks.  more »
  • During Christmas holidays, the lightings and decorations in Dollywood make it the best attraction in PigeonForge area. Must see attraction for all the ghoomnaphirna enthusiasts.  more »

  • Dollywood is such a nice family oriented amusement park. There‚Äôs plenty to do for everyone. Rides for the children, wonderful food, and beautiful shows for adults and children alike. The price is very reasonable and well worth it. Having a season ticket is a great bargain, each festival offers a different venue that is interesting to all walks of life. The park is exceptionally clean, bathrooms are available everywhere. The park is handicapped and wheelchair accessible. One can rent wheelchairs and strollers if needed and it is a safe environment. There are plenty of shops with craftsman tool gifts and souvenirs. It is no wonder that folks from all over the United States come to visit Dollywood in the heart of the smoky mountains.
  • Great family oriented park with tons to do and see. Many items from years past to enjoy including old cars and a beautiful old steam engine. The staff was very friendly as we bought our tickets and entered the park. Ticket prices are reasonable compared to some places. They offer stroller and scooter rentals so you don't have to worry about dragging yours along unless you just want to. They also offer to take your souvenirs to their main exit building so you don't have to carry them all over the park while your there. plenty of food options and tons of rides for the young and old alike. If my family lived closer we would definitely invest in a season pass. Only reason I'm not giving them 5 stars is because lack of bathrooms and some rides didn't have enough staff to run them, not a huge issue but should have some looking into.
  • We enjoy every minute of Dollywood, so much that we purchased our first season passes this year. The park is always clean and staff is friendly and will answer any questions. You will enjoy the shows and music entertainment as well. There's nothing about that park I don't like. Very family oriented. A must visit.....
  • Growing up near Six Flags over Georgia I was not sure what to expect of Dollywood. I honestly thought it would be a step up from a state fair. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it is a great family amusement park. Smaller than six flags but has some great rides and a better theme feel. My kids love it! The nightly fireworks are awesome.
  • We are from Orlando Florida, the home of amusement parks and we were blown away by this place. The staff was super friendly, way friendlier than the happiest place on earth and the talent in the shows were unbelievable. We went during the Christmas time frame and the decorations were beautiful the shows were all designed around Christmas and the rides were still running. I would highly recommend this place to any one of my friends, family or anyone asking. This is a will and must return for my family.
