Dollywood is a theme park located in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, USA. The park is home to six roller coasters and many other rides. It is owned by entertainer Dolly Parton and Herschend Family Entertainment.
The park first opened in 1961 called Rebel Railroad. Its main attraction was a coal-fired steam train. The attraction was renamed Goldrush Junction in 1970 and additional attractions opened that year. The park's name was shortened to just Goldrush in 1975 before being purchased by Herschend Family Entertainment in 1976 and renamed Silver Dollar City. In 1986, Dolly Parton became a co-owner and the park was renamed Dollywood.
On March 27, 2010, Adventure Mountain was opened. It was a ropes course with three distinct courses varying in difficulty. On December 9, 2012, Dollywood announced that Adventure Mountain would not reopen for the 2013 season. It was replaced by FireChaser Express in 2014.
