Dolly adds 10 new Dollywood family rides to her Smoky Mountain theme park

Dollywood announced plans to expand its Country Fair area inside the park to include 10 new rides and a new look for the 2005 season. The emphasis of the expansion focused on family rides.

The Country Fair area already is one of the most popular areas within Dollywood. The expansion increased the area’s capacity by more than 2,000 passengers an hour. The rides include a mix of traditional favorites and unique experiences new to the industry. A 70-foot-tall airplane-style ride allowed passengers to create their own flight experience. Other themed rides offered twists, turns, spins and dips. Most allowed parents and children to experience the ride together.

Dolly believed in providing a park the whole family can enjoy. The new Dollywood family rides featured several attractions specifically designed for small children.
