Named after the spunky country singer, Dollywood embodies much of the spirit of its namesake, while offering visitors thrilling entertainment in the Great Smoky Mountains. With wooden roller coasters, live entertainment, water rides, and major festivals, there's never a dull moment in the park.
To get your money's worth, purchase a pass at the gate after three p.m. and get the next day free. This offer is only valid until November, but it's one of the best ways to stretch your dollar. Also, be on the lookout for online specials through the Dollywood website throughout the year.
