Dollywood celebrated Dolly’s story in 1998 with the addition of "Paradise Road: The Life and Songs of Dolly Parton." The major Broadway-style show chronicled the superstar’s amazing career. Dolly lent her life story and her songs to a young Janelle Arthur as she played little Dolly. The production was showcased in Celebrity Theater.
Dollywood’s 13th season also marked the opening of Daredevil Falls. It was a unique waterfall ride featuring a 63 mph free fall. Dolly opened Daredevil Falls with a little help from the flying Elvises. As the flying Elvises flew overhead Dolly introduced the world to the tallest and fastest flume ride in the United States.
