Dolly Parton Announcing a Unique New Roller Coaster

Dolly Parton announcing Dollywood’s largest single-attraction investment in the history of the theme park, a new roller coaster – Big Bear Mountain.

The new Wildwood Grove coaster, which is set to debut in the spring of next year, is the largest and longest coaster in the park.

The coaster will circle Wildwood Grove for nearly two minutes on almost 4,000 feet of track, with onboard audio.

There will also be 23 different butterfly moments on the coaster, which will be the most on any family coaster in the county.

The project represents part of the $500 million expansion first announced in 2021.
