Went there one night after dark to see the lights. They were great. Then the next day before dark to see what was all in there and then was able to see the light again that night. Should have gone in the first day before dark. Got to see several Christmas show. If a person like roller coaster then this is the place for you.
We visited on Thanksgiving Day night, entering after 6 to get the next day free. The first night we were able to ride all the rides with minimal lines, but in Black Friday it was what I would term very crowded. A 9/10 on the crowd scale. LIKES: - Our favorite ride was the Wild Eagle. They really have the flow working in that one and the line moves FAST. - Firechaser Express is like Everest from Disney Animal Kingdom. - Ferris wheel at night DISLIKES: - The Sky Rider was a good ride, but needs work on efficient line management - Fast pass system seems to ALWAYS favor the passes, so very unfair to the "regular folk" who already paid too much for a ticket - Smokers everywhere. Come on, Appalachia, put down the coffin nails! All in all a fun time!
We went before Thanksgiving, so the crowds were thick, but got there at opening and did the Eagle coaster several times in a row without too much wait. By the early afternoon, waits for everything approached an hour. We didn't know they had a version of Fastpass or we would've purchased that option (not explained to us when we got tickets, signs very limited for it). Lunch places also had hour waits for mediocre food. Even so, rides were very smooth and fun, show we saw was just ok-warning, they will try to sell you tickets to Dixie Stampede downtown, don't waste your $$.
Before we went, we thought Dollywood was honestly lame, but not anymore! It was loads of fun! They had lots of fun roller coasters and the lines weren't long. We usually waited about 20-30 minutes or less. We only waited an hour for one ride. Also, the food was good at this amusement park! Usually, the food is kinda eh but it was delicious! I definitely recommend going!
