Dollywood 2013 Additions Ready For A New Season

Happy girl coming down the red water slideVisitors have come to expect family fun with a focus on quality entertainment at Dollywood, and 2013 will be no exception. The theme park has many new shows lined up as well as Tennessee’s first “watercoaster” River Rush in Dollywood's Splash Country. River Rush stands four stories tall and carries riders through four drops — the first is 25 feet — dark tunnels, twists and turns and even surprisingly powerful climbs.

Of course the rides visitors have come to love are also ready and waiting, especially the Wild Eagle — the only coaster of its kind in the United States. The Wild Eagle positions riders on “wings” so that there is no structure either above or below the rider. Another returning family favorite is the Gazillion Bubbles show that combines millions of bubbles with laser lights, leaving audiences enthralled. And, of course, Dollywood’s Christmas Carol has become a tradition by adding a country twist to a literary classic.

In addition to the brand new River Rush attraction, Dollywood welcomes many new shows to the 2013 season.

• Cirque Shanghai

 is designed to amaze. Watch mind-boggling acrobatics and impressive feats of strength amid a visual feast of Chinese traditions.

• Mystic India

 takes visitors to the most engaging features of this exotic land. This is an energetic show, featuring over 25 dancers in elaborate costumes.

• Mariachi Divas

 come to Dollywood from Mexico. This all female group has won three Grammy Awards for unique songs with a nod to the mariachi sound.

• Pause Café

• Ugandan Children’s Choirs

 will be special guests performing during Dollywood’s Festival of Nations.

Dollywood wants 2013 to be the year that families and friends spend quality time together, so the park has included some fun additions, such as the Passport to Food, the Festival of Nations, new, summertime evening hours and a fireworks display.

This is the year to visit Dollywood. Make time for what matters this summer. Let Dollywood help you explore new worlds with your family and friends while you take a moment to leave the day-to-day routine far behind.
