Located on 150 acres in the Great Smoky Mountains is Dollywood, the theme park created by country music legend, Dolly Parton.
If you’ve ever wondered what you can do in Pigeon Forge, well, look no further because this offers all kinds of family fun. You can spend a whole day experiencing Dolly’s fun.
You’ll have amazing photo opportunities–just think how all your Instagram friends will be jealous– great food, wonderful memories–and just a lot of fun.
“We even have Pigeon Forge cabins that are just minutes from the downtown area” said a spokesperson for Mountain Air Cabins. “That way, you don’t have to miss a second of the many things you can do in Pigeon Forge, a major travel destination.”
One “can’t miss” show is Dolly Parton’s Stampede. It’s a kind of friendly competition between the north and the south, and it’s filled with horse riding stunts, musical productions and the comic musings of Skeeter & Nugget ™ It also comes with a four-course meal (dessert, of course, included!)
Acrobatics, musical productions, comedy routines and a four-course feast are just some of what you’ll experience at Dolly Parton’s Celebration, a 2018 show, including iLuminate, a show that incorporates technology and dance. This summer, the iLuminate show brings a visual experience unlike anything you’ve ever seen with dancers in electrified glow-in-the-dark suits performing dynamic routines and illusions on a darkened stage.
Before entering Celebration Ridge (where the show takes place), you’ll go to the Outpost where the kiddos will enjoy “magical makeovers” and you’ll enjoy games, snacks, and the gift shop.
SUMMER SPLASH AT THE WATER PARK
Cool down and chill out at Dollywood’s Splash Country, a mountain oasis. It’s next to Dollywood theme park, and features a variety of water attractions for everyone, from the thrill-seeker to the lounger.
RIDES, ENTERTAINMENT AND MORE
The theme park itself has over 40 rides, so this is just a little of what you can expect–but start off with “Dolly’s Nights of Many Colors,” a dazzling fireworks show.
- The Dollywood Express, a 110-ton coal-fired steam engine takes you on a five-mile journey that whistles through the mountains.
- The Barnstormer where you can enjoy the same rush that daring stunt pilots of the1920s might have experienced as they zoomed over the fields of nearby farms.
- The Southern Gospel Museum and Hall of Fame: Learning about history can be fun, and Southern gospel music has very strong roots in the Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee. It’s only fitting that the Southern Gospel Museum and Hall of Fame make its home at Dollywood.
- Santaland. If summer vacations aren’t your thing, no worries, because Dollywood offers fun all year round, including autumn shows and Santaland, open from November 10 to December 23. Don’t miss the Parade of Colors if you’re there for Christmas!
Mountain Air Cabins are located throughout the Great Smoky Mountains, including Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and Wears Valley. It’s not only close to Dollywood, but also The Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Ripley’s Aquarium.
There’s a cabin type for everyone, whether they are looking for a romantic honeymoon or a pet-friendly getaway.
