Here are a few notes you may find helpful:

I’m particularly excited our participants will get to go behind the scenes with our engineers in the Train Shop as they prepare the Dollywood Express for the day’s trips up the mountain. The first ride of the day will be an exclusive opportunity for our Thrills in the Hills group.

Notice that after lunch, you will have free time in the park to enjoy what you wish at your leisure. We’ll meet back up for a snack and ride at the end of the night.

Fireworks are scheduled for 9:40 p.m. both nights. Perhaps you could score a coveted seat ON Thunderhead (Friday) or Wild Eagle (Saturday) during the shows!

Finally, remember these activities will be following social distancing guidelines. It may look a little different than our events in years past, but we’re sure it’s going to be one of your favorite Dollywood memories!
