Those who have been to Dollywood know that there’s never enough time in the day to experience it all. From the food to the shows to the thrill rides, there is so much to do. Plus, who doesn’t want to ride Wild Eagle over and over again?

When is Dollywood After Dark?

This summer night event is offered on July 1st and July 8th for park goers. Extended operating hours means you can play all day and into the night.  Rides like the Wild Eagle, Thunderhead, Tennessee Tornado and Mystery Mine will all be available for rides under the stars! Trust me, it’s a fantastic experience to soar on a rollercoaster under the night sky.

Plus, Dollywood After Dark is a great way to squeeze additional summer fun out of those last couple of weeks before school starts. While park hours during the Summer Lives Festival (June 17 – August 6) are open from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm, you can take advantage of these two special nights for endless summer memories.

While you’re taking advantage of extended summer park hours, be sure to experience these Dollywood features:

  • Gazillion Bubbles: New Dimension Show
  • Dolly’s Nights of Many Colors – fireworks display
  • Classic Shows like Dreamland Drive-In
  • All rides including the new Drop Line free-fall experience

Dollywood After Dark is a must-do summer event for families traveling to beautiful Pigeon Forge. From extended park hours to dazzling fireworks, you’ll make lifelong memories at Dollywood during these exclusive nights!

Make a vacation out of it by purchasing a Dollywood package. You can combine your Dollywood tickets with Dollywood Splash Country tickets and entertaining Pigeon Forge shows like Dixie Stampede for an end-of-the-summer getaway.
