Can you believe that’s it’s almost 2013? How is that possible?
Possible or not, it’s almost here. Recently Dolly Parton announced changes coming to Dollywood for 2013. Here’s an overview:
- RiverRush — With an opening date in May 2013, RiverRush will be Tennessee’s first water roller coaster. It will go up to four stories high, and will be a new part of Dollywood’s Splashing Safari.
- Cirque Shanghai — This event will start on March 23 and will headline the new shows for spring.
- Dollywood’s Christmas Carol — Slated for next year’s holiday season, this show will start before the holidays and continue through Jan. 4 (2014).
- National Southern Gospel & Harvest Celebration — This will coincide with Dollywood’s Festival of Nations March 23 – April 22.
- The Great American Summer — Dollywood will celebrate summer (summer … I have to admit, it’s starting to sound good.) in grand style this year with The Great American Summer. It will last from June 22 – Aug. 4 with extended park hours and a nightly fireworks extravaganza.
New rides, new shows, new extended summer hours. Spring can’t get here soon enough (after Christmas, that is!).
Dollywood is located in Pigeon Forge, TN.
