New Dollywood Rides and Shows Announced for 2017 Season

Dollywood is back at it again with even more rides and shows to announce for the 2017 season. For the upcoming season, you can expect at least 2 new rides to Dollywood, a new ride at Dollywood’s Splash Country, an addition to their fall festival and a brand new show!

Drop Line at Dollywood

This ride is a 200-foot tall free-fall ride that towers over Timber Canyon. It will take riders about 20 stories into the air where you will be able to see an overlook of the park before quickly dropping back down to the ground.

Timber Tower was a similar ride that was previously at Dollywood, but after much technical difficulty, the ride was permanently closed. This new ride, Drop Line, is taking its place in the same area of the park.

Whistle Punk Chaser at Dollywood

Dollywood is adding another junior coaster in 2017 – Whistle Punk Chaser. The ride is going to include lots of twists and turns for younger riders. The logging-themed ride will prepare kids for the larger, wooden coaster, Thunderhead.girl on water slide at Dollywood's Splash Country
