“Great Park, lots of fun!”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Great Park. Kind of reminds me of the old themepark Opryland USA as far as style goes.

Really enjoyed our visit, a very family friendly park

“Great shows!”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

My husband and I had a great two days in the park in April. We like the shows and went to several of them more than once. The park was clean and not crowded. The lines weren't extremely long, and there was shade. It was like the buildings were built around the trees. We enjoyed our trip so much that we took my mother-in-law and sister-in-law in October because there were different shows that we thought they would enjoy. I recommended it to my niece and her two children. They also had a great time and enjoyed the rides.

“Pleasant surprise”
Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

This place was such a nice surprise. The roller coasters were exciting. The ropes course was extensive and challenging. The crowds were very manageable. It was educational and fun for the whole family. One of my favorite parks. I recommend it as a nice alternative to Florida and California.

“Need to go back!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

We visited Dollywood in September of 2012. There are lots of things to see and do, and it is a very pretty place to walk around. Plenty of food options, lots of varied shops, and rides for those who like that kind of stuff. We were with friends who live in the area, and did not get to see and do everything we would have liked to because they had seen & done it already. Next time we will go by ourselves!!!
