Dollywood is a Pigeon Forge vacation must! The park offers plenty to do for all ages. Plan on lots of walking. Make sure to get a park map and show schedule when you arrive. When you're thirsty, ask for a cup of water at any food stand. It's free!

Even if rain is in the forecast, go to Dollywood. You’ll experience shorter wait times, fewer crowds, and more chances to ride your favorite coaster or ride over and over again. We walked right onto Tennessee Tornado, Wild Eagle, and Mystery Mine!

We had a great experience even if the weather did not cooperate fully. On our next visit we will definitely go off season because the park was very full and the wait for food was outrageous. Overall we all had a great time

The wife and I brought our granddaughter and two of her friends, all 11 years-old, for a day of fun during their Spring Break. The girls had a great time and the day was perfect!!! We had issues with our printed tickets upon entrance and the staff was very efficient and friendly and resolved the issue quickly. The wait times were not as long as I expected them to be and the park and all it accommodations were very clean. Great time! We will be returning in the future for more fun

"Great Amusement Park"
April, 2018 NEW
Love this park. It was extremely crowded as we were there over spring break. The park was very clean. Restrooms were the cleanest I have ever seen. The attendants at the rides were all very nice, even on the extremely hectic days where lines were very long! Will come back. Plenty of things to do and see even if you are not a fan of rides, but the roller coasters do not disappoint!

"Unique Theme Park"
April, 2018 NEW
Dollywood is unlike any theme park I’ve ever been to. Its part roller coaster park like six flags or Cedar Point but also part museum and added to that there is an entire area of crafters making candles, glass vases, wood carving and metalworking. I didn’t have much interest in the roller coasters and other rides so I thought we wouldn’t be there very long. Even without going to anything we had to stand in lines for we still spent most of the day there, it just has so many things to see and do for people of all tastes and ages. When we went it was during their “Festival of Nations” celebrations so there were plenty of shows and concerts around to go to all over the park.

We went the day after Easter and I did notice due to it being so early in the season that some of the food areas and many of the games in the carnival midway area were closed, likely due to lack of manpower until colleges let out for the summer. I was just sad I didn’t get to play Plinko because of it. Oddly despite it being spring break and possibly understaffed I didn’t see long lines for anything. Even on their app the longest line I saw the entire time we were there was only 25 minutes for the most popular coasters.

Although it says everywhere that it opens at 10am I did find out that they open the doors at 9:30am so everyone can get into the park and line up at their favorite rides etc. Nothing in the park opened until 10 (some of the food areas may have opened before that, I didn’t check) but it was nice to get in a bit early and start walking around.

Tip: There is a preferred parking option that costs $25 instead of the normal $18 but goes to a small lot close to a separate entrance to the park. It was well worth the extra seven dollars for not having to wait for a tram or huge lines at the entrance.

What a wonderful couple of days. We saw every group once and some twice. We are two 65+ year olds who come for the entertainment and landscaping. We found plenty to do.

Tip: Trolleys take you to and from the parking lots to the entrance. We missed a chance to ride the train because we waited to try until late in the day.

"One day is good enough!"
April, 2018 NEW
We went for two days. We also had good weather. One day is good enough for small children 2 and 4 years of age. First because you cant ride the adult rides when you are with kids and second there really is not enough rides for small children. I would like to come back without kids and do the roller coasters. Also the lines for the small children are way too long. Imagine standing in line with a 2 and 4 year old for 45 minutes. Just imagine. Yes that picture in your head right now was me.

Tip: bring something to entertain the children in line and bring snacks.

THIS PLACE IS THE BEST PLACE TO GO IN PIGEON FORGE. They have a little of everything to do with everybody. Even if you don't like rides they have shops, shows, and even a Dolly Museum that you can take a tour of. There is never a dull moment. I have been going there since I was 2 and now I am 20. The people that work their are so friendly and check your schedule before you go because they have diffrent events through the park at certain times of the year and if your lucky Dolly might be there.

"So Much Fun!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed April 18, 2018 NEW
We were a party of 15 with two under 2 and we had a blast! There was something for everyone all day long. So much fun. The park was super clean - even warm water to wash your hands in the restrooms!!! Food was great and lines weren't too bad. Our advice - GET THE TIME SAVER if you want to ride all of the roller coasters. We had 7 of them and it was money very well spent. Everyone got to ride, as many times as we wanted, and never had to wait in the snake lines. So fun. We will absolutely go back again.

Overall enjoyed the park. Food is too pricey and April weather too warm for me, but fun rides and a nice atmosphere. Really liked the Heartsong film (Dolly's memories and feelings for the Smoky Mountains).

I’ve visited Dollywood ever since I was a child. I still continue to visit with my own children. There are so many attractions to meet the needs of our entire family. Fun, mild rides for my younger son, fast, thrilling rides for my older son, and tons of crafts/shops I enjoy! The food is always delicious! We enjoy the Festival of Nations and Bluegrass & BBQ.
