I really love this park.... nice variety of rides and attractions. If you are just there for "thrill rides" you won't need but about a half day, but if you are into the whole theme park experience you could definitely make a full day of it.

A lot of people seem to like it, there is a lot to do and ride. It really isn't my cup of tea but I'm sure you will enjoy it. The Tennesee Tornado was alright, I enjoyed it the 3 times I went on it. I wasn't there for Thunderhead though. I really need to ride more wooden coasters.
^Yeah but the sad thing was...it's starting to show a bit of Arrowness. When we rode it last year, it was noticeably more rough. Don't get me wrong, it is still by far the smoothest Arrow multi-looper, but it did concern me a bit!

Last year was my first year at DW and Pigeon Forge for that matter.
It was one of the best vacations I've ever been on.
The Chutes at Ober Gatlingberg are fun. It sure seemed odd riding ski lifts w/out snow though, not used to looking down and seeing green.
You and Robb were right about what you said about the Nascar Place. I liked the other go kart places better.
No lack of places to eat around there either. We stayed like a week in PF. did a ton of hiking and sight-seeing.

We are season pass holders and will be there for "Sneak Preview" on Friday, 3-25. Opening day for the GP will be on Saturday, 3-26 and we'll be there that day as well. "Festival of Nation's" will be premiering on 3-26 so that, along with the three coasters and discovering the 10 new flats in the Country Fair section should be more that enough for a full day if not a full two days. Take your time to enjoy the side attractions which some people may overlook when visiting. These include: An area and display of unreleasable American Bald Eagles, An authentic Steam Locomotive ride back up the mountain, and an International crafts market and food court. Make sure you try one of the four sit down restaurants (two have all you can eat), my personal favorite is Granny Ogle's Ham-n-Beans. Find and ride the Slidewinder. Hope you have a great trip to Dollywood. The crowd can vary from light moderate to light heavy on this day according to the weather. The park is actually opening to the GP about a week earlier that normal. The official Grand Opening weekend is the following weekend. The Grande Madam, Dolly herself will be in the park on that Saturday.
Take it easy,
Lets just say, If I lived anywhere near Tennessee, I would be a season pass holder. Dollywood is one of my most favorite parks. The rides, the food the bluegrass, I like to spend 2 days there, dont forget the water park. Is it opened this early?? If so your going to have a blast!
