It features an award-winning range of spectacular showcases, festival offerings, and memorable experiences. The attraction will open on the 10th and 11th of May. Dolly Parton will be there for the official ceremony.

The Grove will feature 11 new experiences for guests, including a new restaurant, a climbing structure, and a roller coaster called the Dragonflier.

Parton had some heartfelt words to the new attraction in the theme park that bore her name for over 30 years.

“This area is going to give families a place to explore, play and imagine together—but more importantly—it’s a place where they can spend more time together. “I believe everyone has a song in their heart that needs to be set free. Wildwood Grove will be a place where families can learn together about what their heart song truly is.”

Dollywood will also feature the Festival of Nations lineups. The event runs on the 16th of March to the 14th of April.
