Dollywood Coasters Rebuilt in the Off-Season

Contrary to what many believe, when Dollywood’s season ends, we don’t just turn the rides off and walk away. Likewise, our ride operators don’t return when the park opens to fire the coasters back up for the first time in months. Instead, every major coaster is rebuilt in the off-season. There’s a maintenance schedule for everything from Thunderhead to Busy Bees.

Some attractions have a shop on-site (like Wild Eagle and Blazing Fury), but other ride vehicles like Tennessee Tornado and Mystery Mine are taken to another location for work. It’s a pretty amazing process.

While “maintenance” encompasses a wide variety of tasks (off-season examples include clearing snow, repairing plumbing or electricity and installing new structures), Dollywood employs hosts who are solely dedicated to working on rides. They know every part of every vehicle and every track. Watch this video to learn more!
