Having been to this park before it was Dollywood I must say that each visit gets a bit better. They have added several news rides. The price is a bit high but for a good day out and to keep the kids entertained it was worth it.

My family of four made our second, and most likely our last visit to Dollywood on April 1. Upon arrival, we found the traffic getting into the parking lot unbelievably long, but moving at a pretty good pace. I estimate it took us about 40 minutes from the time we turned off Pigeon Forge Parkway to get parked. At one point we heard traffic was backed up to Teaster Ln. Once in the lot, we waited almost another 40 minutes at tram stop D-E for pickup. From there we were dropped off at the ticket booth. The line there was so long, I stepped out and purchased tickets from my smart phone and proceeded to the turnstiles. At last - in the park. From this point we walked up the hill to the River Battle, which was the only amusement ride in the park that we actually got to enjoy on this day. From there my daughter and I went to the Fire Chaser Express, where we waited in line approximately one hour only to be turned away because the ride broke down. At this point, the kids were hungry so we walked down the hill through Craftsman Valley looking for food. There were long lines at Hickory House and the other food establishments along the way. We kept walking and settled for Dogs N Taters. There are three cashier windows here, two were in service. Here we waited at least an hour to pay over $50 for four corndogs, fries and drinks. To top things off, the third window opened up as we were walking away with our food, and workers just said "Can I help whose next?", taking walk-ups as opposed to waiting on folks that had also been in line for an hour. We found a bench at the outdoor theater, sat down and ate. From here we learned from those around us that the Tennessee Tornado was broke down, so we decided to try the Dollywood Express steam train. Fortunately the train turned out to be a good experience. Lastly, we went on to the Smokey Mountain River Rampage, where we waited in line for another 30-40 minutes. We were actually next in line, when we could tell something went wrong judging by the confused looks and commotion at the control center. We watched as employees scratched heads, threw their hands in the air, and unloaded riders from the rafts. Finally, a worker came over and spoke to a nearby guest and told him the ride would be down for at least 30-45 minutes. Word spread fast, and we all ended up having to find our own way out, as the park employees did not ever address the group, tell us what was wrong, or usher us out of the area. At this point we went to the carnival area, and in a last ditch effort to have fun, spent about another $100 on games such as ring toss and shoot the hoop. By now it was almost 6:00 p.m. and time for us to go. In summary, it was over $400 for my family of four to ride the River Battle, ride the train, eat a hot dog and play some carnival games. Kudos to one of the previous reviewers who took their April 1 experience to the park office and got a refund.

This is an amazing park. The rides are top notch and the shows are fantastic, though we did not see any this time around. The zip-line attraction in the park was great fun for t he two older children. We all had fun, though, especially the baby who enjoyed her rides as much as the older ones enjoyed the zip lines!

The 3 other adults in my group all agreed that the wooden coaster was one of the best they'd ever been on. The 4 kids in our group loved all the rides especially Mystery Mine and Wild Eagle. The park was very full the week before Easter and lines were long towards the end of the day. Our longest wait was 75 minutes. We had no idea it would be that long because there was no staff member at the front of the line to inform guests of wait time and no updated clocks to let you know how long to expect.
