Dollywood Theme Park

One of Tennessee’s Biggest Attractions

Located within a 10-minute drive of GuestHouse Inn Pigeon Forge, Dollywood features a theme park, a water park, and special events for the whole family. Owned by renowned country music entertainer Dolly Parton and Herschend Family Entertainment, this massive complex brings in over 3 million guests per season, from March to December.

The theme park boasts over 40 rides and attractions for visitors of all ages, ranging from the toddler-friendly Busy Bees to the thrilling Daredevil Falls. You can stop by the Eagle Mountain Sanctuary to see the non-releasable bald eagles or head to the Smoky Mountain Home for a replica of Dolly Parton’s childhood home in Locust Ridge. Meanwhile, the adjacent water park is a great place to cool down, featuring a lazy river, a wave pool, and numerous water slides. Both areas of the park offer several different dining options, including traditional, sit-down Southern dining and more casual concession stands.

Dollywood theme park also hosts live entertainment throughout the season. Listen to the sounds of the Smoky Mountain String Band, the 1960s-inspired Gem Tones, or My People!, featuring members of Dolly Parton’s family. The end of the year is especially festive at Dollywood and includes numerous Christmas-themed performances to delight the entire family.  The holiday season schedule includes Christmas with the Kingdom Heirs, Appalachian Christmas, and ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas.

The friendly staff at GuestHouse Inn is happy to provide additional tips on the best things to see and do at this park in Pigeon Forge.
