The Dollywood Maintenance Team is working to ensure all rides are ready for opening day. 

Dollywood opens Saturday, March 13, (Friday, March 12, for season passholders). With only a few days until the 2021 season opening, the maintenance team is busy wrapping up their usual off-season ride maintenance. Dollywood’s Rides Maintenance Director, Barry Stiltner said,

“What I love about Dollywood maintenance is just that they are so genuine about their job. They love making sure that the rides are operating as high of percentage time as they can.”
