    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: None
    Cons: Waste of money and time

    Summary: Perhaps we should have known it was not a good idea when we had to park in the next county OR perhaps the woman leaving the park with a newly casted arm was an indication, but we were not prepared for just how unpleasant our day at Dollywood would ... read more

    Pros: Plenty to choose from
    Cons: Little pricey, but what theme park isn't

    Summary: *****Disclaimer…I decided to break down this epinion into a couple different Epinions (yet to come) due to the many different things you can do at Dollywood. If I included them into one article, you would give up on me (and Dolly) midway through. This ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Nice gardens...OUTSIDE
    Cons: Very pricey, couldn't afford to get in

    Summary: I have always applauded Dolly Partons effort in helping the people of Pigeon Forge. The fact that she gave scholorships, and created jobs for many of the people there is heartwarming. This is one of the reasons my family and I decided to vacation ... read more

    Pros: great rides, great food, delightful music, gorgeous setting (mountains)

    Pros: Lots of trees for shade, and lots of benches to rest on.
    Cons: The food and drinks were very expensive.

    Summary: If you are looking for some great family fun, Dollywood in Pigeon Forge Tennessee is the right place to go. First of all I will start off by telling you about parking. It cost $5.00 to park. You will also need to remember your letter (A-Z) because it ... read more

    Pros: Big Name On The Marquee
    Cons: Big Disappointment In The Flesh

    Summary: My wife and I, along with two young sons, visited Dollywood the first year it was open. As theme parks go, it was so-so, but because it was new (or because there are a heckuva lot more Dolly Parton fans than I was aware of - loved ya in "9 To ... read more

    Pros: Good rides, plenty to do
    Cons: Food and drinks are expensive

    Summary: I've been to Dollywood at least once a year since before it became Dollywood - back to the days when it was Silver Dollar City and the parking lot was gravel and they carted you to the gate in retired school buses. Now the parking lot is paved (and ... read more

    Pros: great park esp if you enjoy country atmosphere
    Cons: not the place if you dont like country atmosphere...

    Summary: I live in Tennessee... so of course I am fan of the Smokey Mountains and the beauty they contain. One thing that comes from the mountains of Tennessee is the famed and talented Dolly Parton. I think it is a safe assumption to come to the conclusion that ... read more

  • Disappointing...

    Jun 8, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It is better than some smaller amusement parks I have been to...
    Cons: It is nowhere near what you would expect from modern major amusement park...

    Summary: I have to say that Dollywood didn't live up to my expectations as a national level amusement park. It compares more like a minor league team vs. to a major league team. I like the Dixie Stampede more than I like Dollywood itself. I gave ... read more

    Pros: Great frontline employees. Mostly retirees and part timers used. Good product for the public.
    Cons: Managers will tell lies to insure that they look good. They also are sexiest.

    Summary: I worked for this company for over 25 years. They decided I had been with the company too long (still making less than other comparable jobs) and my supervisor created a a bunch of lies to get me to leave with a severance package. Paid to leave? So he ... read more
