There is a new rollercoaster coming to America’s top theme park. Check out this awesome video of the ride animation!
A New Coaster is Coming!
Earlier this year, Dollywood swept in like a quiet storm and earned the Trip Advisor Traveler’s Choice Awards distinction of being America’s Best Amusement Park! It topped all of Central Florida’s wildly popular tourist destinations, including all Walt Disney World and Universal parks. You can see all the rankings, including how Disney stacked up, right here.
Dollywood, of course, is Dolly Parton’s theme park located in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. It seems like we are hearing more and more positive things about this mountain destination, and it might just be getting even better!
A New Roller Coaster
For the past few weeks, Dollywood has been teaching parkgoers on social media with posts about Big Bear, a legendary black bear, being spotted in the Smokies. Then, just a few days ago, the park announced something BIG! A new coaster is roaring into Dollywood soon!
The new coaster, Big Bear Mountain, is a multi-launch Vekoma coaster. It has a whopping 3990 feet of track that wind across 6 acres of Wildwood Grove. It’s going to be BIG fun.
