The Smoky Mountain blonde bombshell has fans on edge waiting to find out what her next big secret is all about. Working through Dollywood’s Facebook page, Ms. Parton is revealing a hint a day until the big announcement on August 21. Until then, we at Visit My Smokies have decided to take a few guesses in what Dolly’s big announcement really is. Have your own idea on what Dolly’s big reveal will be? Let us know in the comments below!
To follow Dolly’s new theme of introducing family members into the Pigeon Forge theme park, Dolly will soon announce that Dollywood will re-brand itself to Mileywood. Named after her goddaughter, and rising pop star, Miley Cyrus, Dolly will more than likely include the newly named park as part of her wedding gift to Cyrus and Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth.
B. Going Brunette
Just in time for fall, Dolly will be trading in her timeless golden locks for a darker shade. We’re thinking either chestnut or a vivacious auburn color.
C. Governor Parton
It is no secret that Dolly holds her East Tennessee roots close to her heart, and because of this the country music legend has decided to go one step further and run for Tennessee’s next governor! Ms. Parton has already created a strong education platform to run on through her Imagination Library. Geared toward helping childhood literacy rates, the educational program delivers one age-appropriate book a month to kids learning how to read.
D. Dollywood Goes Bi-Coastal
In case we are wrong about the future Mileywood, we have done some digging and discovered that the famous theme park may soon have a sister site in Hawaii. We know Dolly has her eyes on the Atlantic coast after talks surfaced that property was recently purchased in Destin, Florida, but what’s stopping the family-friendly fun from setting up shop in the Pacific as well?
E. New Roller Coaster
Much to the excitement of Dollywood fans, rumors hint that Dolly’s big announcement will include a brand new roller coaster for next season! Signs already in the park suggest a new attraction will take the place of where Adventure Mountain used to be.
