Dolly Parton is planning a huge expansion of her Dollywood theme park. In case you missed it, the new attraction, Wildwood Grove, is set to open in 2019 and will feature 11 new experiences for guests.
“I’ve told you before about how I’d let my imagination roam free when I’d be out exploring in the hills around our home in the Smoky Mountains,” Dolly said in a press release. “I’d pretend that the frogs and butterflies were my friends. I’d imagine about what it’d be like to fly with a dragonfly or to follow a bear family through the woods. Now all these things are coming true for our guests to experience in Wildwood Grove; it may be my new favorite part of Dollywood!”
Wildwood Grove, the largest expansion in the park’s history, will feature six new rides, including The Dragonflier roller coaster, and the Treetop Tower, which will vault guests 40 feet in the air. The centerpiece of he park will be the Wildwood Tree, which will be the place for both daytime and nighttime performances.
