I LOVE DOLLYWOOD!I live in TN. Naturally, Dollywood is the only theme park nearby. I was just wondering if anyone else has been to this cute little theme park and what they thought about it!
Fire in the Hole at Silver Dollar City is a bit better. It's the exact same ride, but it's in much better condition, has a few nicer effects and actually has a bit of a storyline to it. There's a gang called the "bald knobbers" that is basically a bunch of criminal arsonists and they're setting the town on fire... So yeah - same scenes, but the bald knobbers are in them as well... plus they make use of the song, "Fire in the Hole" written for the attraction.lol. yeah, blazing fury is definitely a ride I have to ride every time I go because it's so rediculously bad... but if they ever did a massive rehab it would lose its charm.
If I have the cash, I'm down. Except I don't want to go in December; I want to go in November. That's about as far south as you'll get fall leaves, and the combination of crips colored levels all over the ground and Christmas lights was something really special.Road Trip for Xmas at dollywood?
There's a ton to do in the surrounding area. Both Pigeon Forge (where Dollywood is located) and Gatlinburg, the neighboring town, are kind of like a big tacky tourist area. It's like 192 in Kissimmee on steroids. Go-Karts, Mini Golf, tacky shops and tourist trap sights everywhere. There's even a few independantly operated rides - Earthquak in Gatlinburg and Jurassic Jungle Boat Ride in Pigeon Forge - both SO tragically bad that you just have to see them. Ripley's has an aquarium in Gatlinburg as well, and it was pretty decent.I've never been to Dollywood but the family and I were actually just looking into making a trip up that way next summer/fall possibly. The park looks really nice and it looks like there is a lot to do in the surrounding areas? Also looking at renting one of those log cabins in the mountains, anyone ever done that? One more question, have you guys ever been to the waterpark there? It doesn't look over the top exciting but might be a nice afternoon trip during the vacation.
Well, I just went a few weeks ago so if you're looking for photos or whatever, check out my "Chris' World Travels" thread in the Non-Orlando Parks forum.If anyone goes up let me know. I love Dollywood one of the nicest cleanest theme parks in the world. I live in middle Georgia and it 4-5 hours away I think rode with some one last time from Atlanta. I hear that in the winter the coasters can be a little cool to ride.
If you mean Dollywood's waterpark, it is great. It isn't massive, but it IS really nice and pretty!I've never been to Dollywood but the family and I were actually just looking into making a trip up that way next summer/fall possibly.

No - I disagree - it was a lot of fun to see - but I had ALL day. It took a LONG time. I really loved the views and even stopped from some pictures here and there, but I won't be doing it again anytime soon. As a matter of fact I took I-40 back that night. haha.Yes when I went we took the interstate, Oh I have done it across the Smokies and it was a pain in the yasssss. Once you hit 441 in Georgia it is not bad, but the Cherokee is no fun at all.
