This is big! You may already know Great Smoky Mountains National Park for their synchronous fireflies (which are very cool), all of our guests here at Dollywood this summer are going to be able to enjoy their own synchronized performance as Intel® Drone Light Shows launches hundreds of drones into the sky for a spectacular nighttime experience. The performances will take place each evening during Summer Celebration (June 25-July 31).
Dollywood’s Sweet Summer Nights is a multi-sensory drone light show that creates a symphony of light in the sky above the park. The sensational show really does mark a true evolution in traditional theme park entertainment, as it uses nearly 400 drones to animate a spectacular Dollywood-exclusive story. The drone performance is integrated into a choreographed firework show, creating a visual and audial event of epic proportions.
As part of the Sweet Summer Nights experience, a DJ and energetic dancers bring fun to the streets of Wildwood Grove during a 30-minute dance party that ensures every member of the family is on their feet. As the party nears its finale, the celebration takes to the sky as the drones launch into the air for an unforgettable end to the evening.
Intel Drone Light Shows has performed on some of the world’s largest stages, including the Olympics, Coachella, and the Super Bowl. With the ability to create dynamic shapes and animations, each drone serves as a pixel of light that illuminates the night sky. Purpose-built for light shows, each drone is less than a foot in diameter, weighs less than a pound, and can produce more than four billion color combinations.
