About Wes Ramey

While he is originally from Gate City, Virginia, Wes Ramey has long considered Dollywood and the Smoky Mountains region his second home. Many weekends of the year, he would travel with his parents and grandparents to the Smokies to enjoy some his favorite attractions in the area, including the Space Needle, the Gatlinburg Sky Lift, go karts, and of course, Dollywood. Based on his love as a three-year-old for Dollywood’s Convoy ride (there is a picture on his desk), he first told his parents he wanted to become a truck driver when he grew up. He also enjoyed the Flooded Mine because: A.) it was the only ride his mamaw was brave enough to ride, and B.) she was usually scared halfway through! When he isn’t working to tell people about the awesome things you can do at Dollywood with your family (scaring your grandparents doesn’t count), he enjoys spending time with his wife Lyndsey and young daughter. Most of his days are filled with reading Imagination Library books and baking imaginary cupcakes for tea parties, but when he has time, he enjoys anything with wheels and an engine. While he doesn’t own his own race car (yet), he does enjoy watching the professionals do their thing each week. For now, he fulfills his need for speed on Lightning Rod, Thunderhead, Wild Eagle and the Rockin’ Roadway!

Do you like Dollywood’s entertainment? I figured you’d say yes.

Tis the Season for Great Entertainment at Dollywood

By | 2017-11-15T09:32:25+00:00 November 15th, 2017|Entertainment|0 Comments

My parents started bringing me to Dollywood before I can even remember. I’ve visited during the spring, during the summer, during the fall—and when Dollywood started putting up Christmas lights in 1990—during the winter. With as much fun as I’ve had, and with as many memories as I’ve made, there still is no time [...]
