August, 2016 NEW
Dollywood is a reduced Southern version of Disney World. The shows were entertaining. We are retired so a lot of the rides didn't appeal to us. The food was way over priced.
Tip: Bring lots of money - Go to the park after 3pm and stay for the fireworks then go back the next day for free! Also park your car free at the Patriot Park and take the Trolley for $0.50

"Boring and disappointing...will never go back"
August, 2016 NEW
With exception of the few water rides and two roller coasters, there are better and more rides at the state fair. Dollywood is okay for little kids and the elderly. My family did not enjoy Dollywood at all. Way over priced disappointment. Should have gone to the fair.

My kids loved the story house plays, there was an area just for their age and the park was good at separating the rides on that basis. We spent a lot of money but lucky to catch the park during a time when crowds were small. Really enjoyed the opportunities to get out of the heat.

This was the first time for several of the girls so they were very excited. We had a really good time but the weather was extremely hot and humid the day we arrived so it made things a little unbearable at times. The rides were fun and the lines were not to long the day we were there.
Tip: Even though there is a lot of shade at this park comparable to other amusement parks, July it not the best time of year to come unless you like really hot weather.

"Not satisfied"
July, 2016
We have visited Dollywood several times. This year we decided to go because of the new wooden roller coaster opening in 2016. When we arrived they advertise this coaster as if it is in operation. So we bought tickets for three days and it was never open during our three days there. My grandchildren love to ride these coasters and so they were disappointed. We went the last week of June so I think if you are going to advertise that you can ride this ride it should be open to the public.
Tip: Make sure the ride is open for that day before you buy your tickets.

Tip: if you go during hot summer be sure to take your time and drink plenty of water. My granddaughter got over heated and had hard time breathing. They have first-aid stations and we visited one. Very nice people.

There is so much to do at dollywood it is unreal. The whole family can enjoy whatever they want at dollywood. Museums, live shows, tours, trains, great stores, restaurants and of course the wonderful rides. They have a wide selection of kid rides and adult rides . The rollocasters where great. If you go to dollywood i def. Recommend rideing the Wild Eagle . My girls loved every minute of dollywood and the splash park which is a awsome water park. My 6 year old is now obsessed with Dolly Parton She keeps saying she so pretty lol. Me and my family will definitely be going again !!!
Tip: Definitely can not go just 1 day there so much to do and love and the water park is a must as well !

July, 2016
My C0-Leader and I brought 7 Girls Scouts from Troops 20051 and 20054 to the Pigeon Forge Area. The girls sold Girl Scout Cookies to earn this trip. They chose the attractions and things they want to see while in that area. Dollywood was their top choice. The trip to Dollywood was a great success. The girls enjoyed Dollywood better than Six Flags Over Georgia. The layout was fantastic and the lines for the rides were not long at all. The place was clean, restrooms were located in all the right places and refreshments were scattered thru out. One of the girls must do again. The shuttle's were great.
Tip: That wheelchairs are accessible for people that need them and dress comfortable and enjoy.

I have been to Dollywood several times and each time I am there I am even more amazed. My family loves the rides. We enjoy this time together and get to do so many things here. The lasting memories are countless. There are areas for everyone from a country fair to a town from the fifties. Rides are of any variety from log rides to roaring roller coasters, abandoned mines to carousels. I cannot say enough about Dollywood and the people there. The staff is exactly what you would expect to see at a family oriented place like this. Dollywood is a must for my family every year.
Tip: Dont try to do it all in one day. Take advantage of the after 3 o'clock next day in free.

Fast, thrilling coasters in an extremely friendly (and beautiful) environment! We were there all day. Mother nature decided to throw a storm our way at about 7pm and the park issued all of the guest a "rain check" to come back for free any day this year. Who does that?!?! The restaurants have good food too. A great place to bring the family for a fun day.

This was my second time visiting Dollywood but my first time bringing my two girls. The whole day was great, the weather was hot we never waited in to long of lines and the staff was awesome. I've always thought Dolly really caters to her guest from the handicapped accessibility she provides to the free water, I know that may not seem like much but when it's 90 degrees it is a big deal. I will say the next time we go we will be purchasing the 3 day pass and hitting up the water park. Already planning our next trip and can't wait!!!!!

I have seen dolly wood advertising and thought to would be great for me my husband and 6 year old child. I looked up rride height requirement and everything before I book. We got there all the rides for his size are uphill my husband has a knee that gives him trouble we walked all the way to the rides which were not on water park side but all but 2 rides the my child could ride you had to get wet if we wanted to get we we would have went to the water park. Food was very high and not that good. Was not what I expected and not worth what I had to pay. Very very disappointed. Don't waste your money if you have small kids it does not live up to expectations. However I can say the staff there are extremely friendly.

"A Place everyone needs to visit at least once in there life."
October, 2015
Dollywood is awesome to go to. Our family went to several places in a two day stay. We tried to plan our several actives in a short time but the truth is this place has so much I wanted to visit them all. The hardest thing is to decide what to do. Anyone that goes should make it more than 2 days . I would go over and over again every year. The Hotel was great to my family and made us feel welcome. The people in Pigeon Forge and Gatling burg made us feel welcome as well. There are many reasons to visit this amazing place for example: to relax , to enjoy being with family , to have fun at a awesome place , to make memories , and etc..
Tip: People should shop around for discounts.

We went as a family and did a 2 day pass one water park or amusement park. The ride lines were not super long but received the speed pass brackets! If you have little kids these are a plus!
Tip: Get a speed pass

"Such a great place to go!"
October, 2015
This is one of the best amusement parks and family destinations in the country. We have been all over this country visiting parks and this is one of the very best. The workers are super friendly and kind - always with a smile. The rides are first class and exciting. The atmosphere is family oriented with a Christian feel that we treasure. We will be back and look forward to experiencing more of the park and attractions in the future.
Loved it!!!
Tip: Expect a great time and a wholesome adventure.Make sure you experience the Zip Line adventure - so fun!

"Awesome Day"
October, 2015
We visited Dollywood at the beginning of August and were fortunate that it wasn't too packed. The ride lines weren't long at all and the shows were enjoyable. All of the shops were very interesting. It's a lot like Silver Dollar City in Branson, MO. All in all, it was a very fun day!!

"Sunday in Dollywood"
October, 2015
We visited Dollywood at the end of August 2015. I wanted to go on Sunday because I wanted to be able to attend church services while we were there. Sunday Morning was quiet as it should be and we rode some rides several times. Then we went on to church. It was a simple service and we sang a few hymns, very nice. Then, of course, we had to have Sunday Dinner. So we went to Aunt Granny's Buffet. It was absolutely delicious. I don't go to Dollywood often because like most theme parks it can get pricey. Every 3 or 4 years. we try to spend some time there. I wish I was there now. The Harvest and Gospel Celebration is a great event.
Tip: Best Tip is to park at Patriot Park behind the Old Mill and catch the fun time trolley. It saves you from paying the parking fee and the trolley drops you off right at the gate.

"Friends and Fun"
October, 2015
After just getting our new rv (we both are retired) and thinking of places to go and see this was on our list and talking with a friend who said she'd love to go so we planned. After first going to Memphis ( to see Elvis) then Nashville ( to see the grand ole Opry) we spent a few days in Pigeon Forge and just loved it so much to see and do we were surprised and the area was so beautiful. We didn't have enough time to do everything but we did go to Dollywood which is so pretty, clean and everyone was nice and polite. The food was good and the entertainment great we had such a great time. We will definitely be back to see and enjoy the area even more.

"Dollywood review"
October, 2015
We recently went to Dollywood with friends. It had been a number of years and enjoyed it very much. We went at the end of September so we did not have to deal with large crowds. Because we were all older adults we were not interested in any of the rides although if we had wanted to, there were no lines to worry about. We enjoyed the food and the shows were great. Our biggest disappointment was the high cost for parking.
Tip: If travelling at time other than summer, check to make sure the park is open as it is not open daily after labor day.

"Dollywood is my Disney"
October, 2015
Dollywood has been my family's preferred theme park for years. The different areas of the park provide fun things for everyone, regardless of their interests. My brother can enjoy the classic cars, my mom can watch the demonstrations in the craftsmen shops, and I can go nuts riding rides all day. Then we can meet at Aunt Granny's for a delicious family style dinner. It's less expensive and more accessible than Disney, and my family just loves it.
Tip: Get the refillable souvenir cup; it's worth the money!

Had a grand experience at Dollywood. My nickname is Dolly so it was cool to have my 65th birthday at the venue. The shows we saw were awesome. Very talented. My brother and I went on a couple roller coasters which were awesome. The staff was very friendly and helpful when we had that "lost" look. Food was very very good.
Tip: Try to see as many shows as possible. Very talented singers and musicians.

"Something for most everyone."
October, 2015
I've been to Dollywood many times but my most recent trip was somewhat frustrating due to the most popular rides being closed. Four in one day and two were while we were in line so that was pretty frustrating. Two coasters were down due to wasps, the river rampage just quit working and then someone threw up on mystery mine and it was out of service for over an hour. The staff were still very friendly and helpful though.
Tip: Just ask for a cup of ice water at any booth instead of buying a bottle. Bags can't be taken on some of the rides so plan accordingly.

"Family of 12 and was fun for all ages"
August, 2015
We had a great time at Dollywood. This was the first year that we have got to take the whole family with us and everyone enjoyed it. We ordered our tickets online before going which made it a whole lot easier once we arrived. We arrived just before the gates were open which in my opinion is better because the parking is great and lines are not long. After going through the gates they have this place that you can stop and get the kids measured and bands are given so you know once you get to the rides what each child can ride or not. Everyone had a great time the staff was wonderful. The only bad thing that we experienced was that it came a bad storm and we had to leave before we could ride all the rides but Dollywood does offer rain checks. In our case we didn't get ours back because we lost our tickets once we went in but even though it was bad we are looking forward to coming back hopefully this fall but if not we will most def be headed back there in the near future
Tip: Hold on to your tickets in case it rains you out, so you can get a rain check back

What a wonderful trip and at a much needed time. My father had recently passed and I took my Mom and daughter to Dollywood. The whole experience from the reservation, to parking, to the tram, throughout the Dollywood Park was just so amazing and like being among friends and experiencing their kindness and such sweet hospitality. Of course no one knew our tragedy but welcome smiles and friendly staff and helpful all around. It was our first time visit and I so look forward to going back.

"Best last-minute vacation plans we ever made!"
April, 2015
There we were, mid-week on Spring Break with no definite plans due to other obligations and work. We did not want to do yet another stay-cation for Spring Break with this possibly being the last one that our 18-yr old would go on with the family. Even though there is a lot to do locally, we wanted to 'get away'. Where to go without a lot of travel that would entertain teenagers? Pigeon Forge! I did a few quick internet searches - found numerous activity ideas, package deals, coupons, etc. A few clicks and I had hotel and tickets to Dollywood! Just a 3.5 hour (beautiful) drive from Atlanta up 411 and we were there.

The kids loved the zip-lining and all the go-kart tracks. Dollywood was pretty good and though crowded was much more enjoyable than Six Flags in Atlanta (which you spend most of your time in line).
Tip: Plenty of activities on the Parkway and close-by if you do not want to hit Dollywood. Grab all the coupon books you see and look through them!

April, 2015
My grandchildren aged 6 & 8 enjoyed the rides. There is a nice variety for all ages. I love raptors so enjoyed that show. Leave some extra time to explore nature here-the Smoky Mountains are beautiful! A couple of rides were closed or down for repair (1 for 20 minutes while we waited in a very long line!). Some staff were friendly but most were terse at best; some were rude. Food was expensive & not much variety. Overall enjoyed the experience & will probably bring the kids again.
Tip: Package deals were good so I bought my tickets ahead (saved time in ticket lines). Cups of water are free at any food vendors.

"Family Trip"
January, 2015
We had a large family trip with our two daughters and two grand-daughters. Overall the trip was good, but was disappointed with Dollywood this time. Have been there before and everything was much better. Went for the Christmas Shows and was only able to see one because of not enough show times and too many people in the park. Does not appear the staff was ready for a big crowd after Christmas. Dollywood has become extremely expensive. I know the season passes are a great deal, but we live 10 hours away and ca not go often. It seems Dollywood is trying to make all of their money on day-trippers by charging higher than necessary prices. Snacks are rather high even for a theme park. You can get much better value for your dollar by visiting some other theme park. For the first time after 6 trips to Dollywood, I was extremely disappointed.
Tip: Slow tram service and outlandish prices.

We visited the Great Smokey Mountains again after a gap of a couple of years and made 5 trips to Dollywood, Dolly Parton's Theme Park and boy was it great! I took the family of 5 adults and our infant Granddaughter and we had a brilliant time, enjoying the water rides, thrill rides, some great shows (especially My People) and good food in the Backstage Theatre Restaurant. I bought Seasons Passes, that cost less than two day tickets and I had a golden pass that cost $44 and saved over $100 in parking, food and other purchases.

Great time had by all. Tennessee is back in school so this is the best time to go. Longest wait for a ride was 15 min. Park is very clean and water is free which was a plus on a hot August day. Parking is pricey at $12.00 and so are lockers at $8.00-$14.00. Park tikets were reasonable. Purchased three day hopper for both parks, Enjoyed Splash Country until we were ready for lunch and then ate outside the park (which saved a bundle.) Then we enjoyed the park until it closed. My children were able to ride all the rides they wanted and then some. Highly recommended.

We went in early August, and it was VERY HOT. Our 2.5 year old daughter was able to ride about 4 rides before lightning struck 5 miles away and all rides had to be shut down. It was blue sky at the park. For a family who does not like country music, this park was not ideal! On the plus side, as a nursing mother, I greatly appreciated the clean air conditioned nursing rooms around the park.

This was our first visit; August seemed to be a great time to visit as it wasn't crowded just very hot. The lines weren't long for the rides but some were down off and on all day with the train not running at all which was very disappointing. Check on line for pricing, we bought our tickets all at the kids prices. Be prepared to pay for parking at $14, we thought it was pricey. Not a ride person you can take in a show or visit Dolly's home, church, school house, etc. The park is clean but some areas are really dated and sun faded. If the shows or a certain ride is important you may want to see what’s showing/running before you pay.
