Doors "open" at 10:00. I was worried we would be too early at 9:30. I was wrong. They do have a tram to pick you up from the lots which is very nice. I recommend getting there early to avoid the mass entry crowds since they will let you in before 10:00 (food was available though rides were not open yet which is understandable). The rides were fun. Wild eagle was a blast and there is definitely something for the whole family. We know next to nothing about Dolly but still really enjoyed walking through her museum. You will be asked to put all bags in a locker or in a cubby on the ride. Even though they do say a small fanny pack is ok, this was not the case so keep that in mind. Lockers are $6 for the entire day and your pin will work ride to ride so you don't have to repurchase every ride. Though keep in mind the rides at the front of the park are more expensive and buying those do not work at the rides. Also get the souvenir refillable cup. Ours more than payed for itself on the 90 degree day since a medium paper cup is $4 and the souvenirs are sold 2 for $19.99. Great experience. Kind workers. Lots to do.
A great park! Very clean and the workers were all very friendly and you could tell most of them love their job!! We went two days and had a blast!
This place is such a blast for all ages! I'm not a huge fan of roller coasters and I hadn't been on one in years. The first wooden coaster didn't go upside down so it wasn't bad. I worked up the nerve to ride the mine coaster and then the eagle. Well it turns out that the eagle was past my limit because it made me sick. Other that that the rides were great! We enjoyed all of the water rides and even the barnstormer which will probably freak you out of you're afraid of heights. In the dead middle of summer this place gets a little too hot for my liking but I bet it's great during spring or even fall depending on whether or not they're open. I will definitely bring my kids here someday!
We spent an entire day here and could have easily spent a second day. We did pretty much everything as far as rides go but wasn't able to see any shows just because we didn't have time. The Dolly Museum was cool to see and we took a tour of her Tour Bus which was pretty cool. Our tour guide was friendly and hlgave us recommendation of other things to do while in town. They give u free water throughout the park too which was nice since it was 105 outside. Check out the 25lb Apple Pie in the Bakery🍎 You can buy a slice for $18. A Slice weighs 3 lbs and feeds 5 and was very tasty
