Overall okay. Teens enjoyed it. We expected more tree cover due to the terrain all around so we were not prepared for how hot it was. We did enjoy a picnic in the parking lot. Don’t miss the Drumline show it was amazing!!!

On our vacation to Tenessee my family and I bought a 3 day pass to Dollywood having heard so many great things about it. But after the first day we were all just ready to get it over with. It rained everyday we went so the rides were closed a lot of the time. And once when it had been raining and all the rides were closed we say one of them going and got excited because we thought one of them was open, but it was just a worker riding on it for fun, and the ride didn’t even open again until hours after that. The rides their selves are alright for teenagers, there’s only a few really cool ones and my brother and I were tired of the park after a few hours of being there. My 6 year old cousin did seem to enjoy her time there though, so I’d recommend this park for families with small children. The food however, isn’t the best. Reds Drive-In is overpriced, I spent $35 on food for my brother and I. If you do end up at Dollywood I would 10/10 recommend their homemade cinnamon bread. My family bought about 10 of them over our 3 day trips there.

Very impressed with The Dollywood Theme Park! Great coasters, great water rides, and great kiddie rides. Very similar to Silver Dollar City I’m Branson, Missouri. Two thumbs up for the cleanliness, layout, and options for all age groups.
