“Great place to spend the day !!”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

This is a wonderful family oriented them park . Admission is better than most. They offer some good deals , just ask! Everyone that works there is so friendly and helpful.
Plenty of rides for everyone, from the thrill seeker to small children. Several shows to see from music to animals. They have several birds that are injured and cannot be released. They do a show using them to educate the public on the different species. We always have a good time.
Food is like most parks, pricy and nothing special. Some places are better than others.Eat before you go and just buy a few snacks.

“Good Fun”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

We have visited Dollywood several times, during the the Barb-b-que Festival, Christmas, and during the summer. We enjoy the park and will continue to visit every couple of years. I enjoyed the fall visits most due to the weather temps and it's less crowded. I recommend reviewing the shows schedule available online prior to going so you can maximize your visit if shows are your thing. The park has something for everyone.

“Fun family time”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

Oh my gosh... this was so much fun! I generally don't do rides... but there I was in line flying through the Smokey Mtns! I'm still smiling. Good food, friendly staff, lots of shows to see. Just sorry that I didn't get to see Dolly... but maybe next time! If you're looking for a family outing, this is it!
