Dollywood Just Opened a Massive New Expansion Inspired by Dolly Parton’s Childhood

Dollywood might just be one of the greatest gifts Dolly Parton has given us — and it’s getting bigger and better.

According to Fox News, the Pigeon Forge, Tennessee theme park dedicated to country singer Dolly Parton opened a $37 million, 6-acre expansion on May 10, increasing the already-impressive park size by 20 percent.

The highly-anticipated expansion, Wildwood Grove, has 11 new family-friendly experiences, including six rides, and a magical-looking Wildwood tree covered in brightly colored butterflies in the middle of the new park section.

Some of the new rides include The Mad Mocking Bird (a flying ride that rotates around a giant tree), the Sycamore Swing (a swinging ride with seats that look like leaves wafting in the breeze), and The Dragon Flier (a family-friendly, 40 mph roller coaster). It also includes a water park section called Wildwood Creek, costumed characters, and plenty of places to eat a delicious meal.
