Photo TR: The Johnson's finally get to Dollywood


Recommended Posts

Hey all! We just got back from a 3-day trip to Dollywood and back. I have been trying to find the time to fit Dollywood into our schedule for the past two years, but I am glad that we held off until this year. We were able to go to SFoG again for a few hours on Saturday as well as hit a new park for us, Lake Winniepesaukah.

 

I will first start of with our visit to Six Flags Over Georgia:

200704280083.jpg.c6358518694efc07e819f551d21d0af1.jpg

It was time to head out.

200704280060.jpg.9ecd385ebd3efa4a342f0c872fb7090a.jpg

We ran out of time to be able to ride the Cyclone this year.

200704280058.jpg.1d6c5d2e0d34fc0e8f195cad4739ebba.jpg

The park only has one Intamin drop tower now.

200704280055.jpg.9d739d9a9e9248b302853b53883b74e7.jpg

It is not open yet.

200704280053.jpg.a9ebd1e9de97c914bc53fcdaa85c1b24.jpg

But Mini-Tatsu is still fun.

200704280052.jpg.46cb1424bafe8874da9cc867c024e736.jpg

Superman used to be Leanne's favorite, until she rode Tatsu last March.

200704280081.jpg.767f86788ff32fb65cf428b4962b4dd9.jpg

We actually had some quality airtime on it.

200704280077.jpg.9bcd169fbd54be7c16419ffe81ca681b.jpg

They had all of these home depot coaster facts all over the queues.

200704280078.jpg.21fe5fad2bb8f6f2b936e2496f4915a9.jpg

GASM was running well that day.

200704280076.jpg.abdfcb1ff369cc16d964c6b3ab18e748.jpg

No thank you.

200704280074.jpg.908848948bbfad06902619fdb6cd5cab.jpg

"Deja Vu Hair"

200704280075.jpg.be85c267c3d299731fb21cef915430be.jpg

It only took Andrew two visits to clear the park. He just earned his Deja Vu Credit.

200704280071.jpg.28ef4d5b83b4cf5841659705255dd0de.jpg

Since we had a Qbot, we only had to wait 15 minutes.

200704280065.jpg.18f8893d5d5820e3bcc9a3a287b87c68.jpg

Oh wow, it still has not broken down.

200704280070.jpg.ba250cb8fef78e6279b77206e6638b33.jpg

We have to ride something new on every visit, right?

200704280069.jpg.9949e6d5adf5cf73ab787edbbd7f2dc6.jpg

As well as the crappy log ride.

200704280066.jpg.695fb0eae695f8292a19b9b76d764a49.jpg

We had to ride Georgia Scorcher with its new paint first.

200704280040.jpg.a72d38ff7fcc57c3f0087a5e8cd58c73.jpg

We noticed something running in the background.

200704280048.jpg.6e7d273e058644f0a676ec130035b6bc.jpg

I wonder if that is safe to drink.

200704280046.jpg.4e7022dec6e07b4caf1a9e21f31c078f.jpg

Poor Andrew had to ride all alone, but he did not care...he was riding Mindbender.

200704280043.jpg.50b101a0df1bab2e9ff4be93d4851dab.jpg

Best ride I ever had on this was this day.

200704280041.jpg.0d64edce6725a3e13ae0eb6eb3d3b3ee.jpg

I thought you only saw this kind of action in zoos.

200704280039.jpg.82fc222e4175a1fb16a2a37c490d6068.jpg

Without Qbot, the wait would have been 90 minutes.

200704280030.jpg.d4d11917c8ca03a6674e40360024a8cc.jpg

Still running as well as last year.

200704280038.jpg.b88c51e30a45b0b245f1a922f31d8007.jpg

This is more like it.

200704280036.jpg.c6b851f38b404bb9b880ff6b155bbd87.jpg

Oh yeah, we got to see Joe and Andrew.

200704280035.jpg.63ae7fac4c4e9923b17b00fcc90c2717.jpg

We had to wait 30 minutes for our time on Goliath, so we rode the Gotham Crime Wave swings first.

200704280032.jpg.99ca79ae0ea39c42510693c70faf586d.jpg

Oh wow, Freefall really is gone.

200704280029.jpg.13a50d6621c838561805193bd3c7e45a.jpg

Even though its took us 20 minutes, we have made a new best friend.

200704280024.jpg.d84b17f138934c6a9b794c30cbf96aff.jpg

I had no idea they had a Qbot "preshow". This really sucked.

200704280022.jpg.0a1547586fcda5861ddb517c79fabd36.jpg

We had to get a Qbot, otherwise we would not be able to ride anything.

200704280020.jpg.2299a96e45b06f29a32999d79b291e45.jpg

One of the many middle school bands.

200704280019.jpg.ab79fc1e199fbbf192ec0156059db18a.jpg

They had a nice 40th display just after the gate.

200704280017.jpg.7eabb309716030bf48beb67b756252b4.jpg

I had no idea it was the 40th.

200704280016.jpg.775bc25980e829a6f3c1e41e2bf7df48.jpg

Lucky for us, all the gates were open so it only took us 5 minutes.

200704280015.jpg.562d85ab40b43de6157c65b62bc12410.jpg

The seas of humanity in the form of middle school bands.

200704280012.jpg.8f632a610eae2f42f775bb9a8e68e2f1.jpg

All these buses can not be any good.

200704280007.jpg.3fb60065ea1917daed3b583d36c36c41.jpg

Oh wow, the park is going to be really crowded.

200704280008.jpg.203735fee377cbe4bc22de7a8f5f95f1.jpg

We are ready to ride Goliath again.

200704280006.jpg.e7d360117f1d92b53eabd3277c95d1b0.jpg

That places looks familiar.

200704280004.jpg.63480554805cbb5fcaa1b4c46983d08c.jpg

We stayed over at one of my best friends up in Atlanta.

200704270002.jpg.1d36d2ee8e12abeb6a00829baeb608b8.jpg

Looks like we made it to Georgia.

200704270001.jpg.a588fd05283ce4c7c6b7c8972126e32a.jpg

We always start off these things with an "upset" cat photo.

Ok, onto Lake Winnie. We only had about 2 hours to explore the park, but we were able to do just about everything we wanted to do. It turned out to be a really nice little family park with quite a few good rides. It was very clean and had a great atmosphere about it. Onward to our photos:

 

Also here is our Lake Winnie video:

 

http://www.themeparkreview.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=35184

 

It does feature onride footage of all three coasters.

200704280131.jpg.19f8db919894e195817489a388f7e55d.jpg

Have a good night, Lake Winnie!

200704280127.jpg.74610873422902b5f7704c370d158a75.jpg

Trainload of people.

200704280128.jpg.6be77293c35e940b7f8fe84dbd0f010d.jpg

It is small, but a lot of people can ride at once.

200704280125.jpg.c5865833803dfe692d999ca076315e3d.jpg

We decided to ride the train, since we always ride the train.

200704280124.jpg.d3b69209e6945d8dd226552ad0d66894.jpg

The Rock City gnome, or Travelocity? You decide.

200704280123.jpg.6e6a1b9c67b21917e2cc39ed85f6f682.jpg

We waited 15 minutes, but we ran out of time.

200704280122.jpg.e3c78e9650650dc8e01c3478a8588a11.jpg

Cannonball.

200704280117.jpg.3fa3c8962ebdae1ae660ce548a05b858.jpg

There are not any type of restraints on this ride.

200704280118.jpg.4668ba0a920eed963820901b6b84ca41.jpg

Sploosh!

200704280116.jpg.972526c90a254e0aa7426a8b2630a490.jpg

You enter here.

200704280121.jpg.708656817e38a9fc0b5a3d54ab99e78a.jpg

We had to ride the "classic" boat chute.

200704280114.jpg.9dc6e20ec94e867e5f2349f72cfd0d71.jpg

Sunset over Lake Winnie.

200704280112.jpg.fd54f5623d9a79af79d5a466dbe82813.jpg

You get it?

200704280106.jpg.0747b8a72b03b1ed199641c8a9ed85dd.jpg

White Lightning proved to be a bit painfull.

200704280108.jpg.540bfdf43961afdfd59b118522276c33.jpg

We decided to skip the drop tower.

200704280111.jpg.0c1fcc0abd426bf54b6971c1e9477e71.jpg

Me and my cannonballs.

200704280105.jpg.2421a9a6f05e6ab3f50282a4fd8ff000.jpg

Another group ready to leave the station.

200704280104.jpg.fb889341ca648736f173879292f2f6be.jpg

They still have the duo-manual braking system in the station.

200704280109.jpg.c7ad8df0d2af6b4c778f04a1f6d000bd.jpg

It was a real suprise on this trip.

200704280098.jpg.6643724285de8861dd4b1bf0b5892418.jpg

We had to wait about 15 minutes to ride.

200704280100.jpg.82c982ba3db691f06d4aa6ce3a3d883c.jpg

Onward to the Cannonball, which was a lot of fun.

200704280094.jpg.f9c1729b2d3caf2b0f2262f55f79ad00.jpg

Onride POV picture of the Wacky Worm.

200704280095.jpg.1dd0f6034e0f59cd65b50fa0a91bf268.jpg

A face only a mother could love.

200704280093.jpg.eac13bde68bf4ba0b8c8242b2ad2a3b1.jpg

Our first Wacky Worm credit.

200704280092.jpg.454870d969158f28db24325babb26c64.jpg

In order for it to be a real park, it must have a merry-go-round.

200704280091.jpg.e455916b3e6efaab03384e6485b668cd.jpg

The pirate ship almost rocks over the lake.

200704280090.jpg.2e55b1c2b93f6444fb41ad18e424a04d.jpg

There is a good assortment of rides here.

200704280089.jpg.4c11fed50d17c0b56b04df7a60e7d449.jpg

If we had more time, we would have bought unlimited ride braclets.

200704280088.jpg.79aca839580e12b50deb4069d2144e7f.jpg

Its turned out to be a nice little family park.

200704280087.jpg.f44535001b1190eb81ce127ce140d5a9.jpg

The parking lot pavement looked brand new.

200704280086.jpg.5f3765c7ab72e69efdf20e1aec0a1461.jpg

Lake Winnie is only 2 hours north of Atlanta. Its about 5 miles off I-75.

Ok, onward to Dollywood. I should post a few notes about this park:

 

*Dollywood is the newest park to receive the Qbot (Q2Q) system. Its simply the most amazing/easy to use fast pass system I have used so far. It is also inexpensive (around $16.40 total for the both of us) They use it quite a bit differently than the ones in Six Flags parks. When you pick up you machine you walk over to a computer monitor which displays all the shows/times. You pre-program your Qbot with the shows and thier times ahead of time. When it comes to rides, every Qbot machine comes pre-programed with a list of all the rides on the system. Using the arrow keys you scroll up/down to pick which ride you want to ride next. Once you pick the ride, its usually ready within 15-20 minutes after your selection...sometimes sooner. You can only have one ride selected at one time, but you no longer have to run to the front of each ride, like you do at Six Flags, to "capture" your next time. You simply just select it from your personal machine. When it is time to ride you walk over to the Q2Q entrance where another employee will scan your machine with another Qbot. Once you are cleared you can immediatly select another ride/ride time on your machine. With this system we never had to wait more than 2 minutes from scanning to sitting on a train for Mystery Mine. We usually has to wait a bit longer for Thunderhead and T. Tornado (about 5 minutes), because you still have to queue up in a seating row after being let into the station.

 

*We thought Mystery Mine was fun. It does have great theming and it does have that great "suprise" that everyone is talking about. We give the ride a solid "B". Just be warned if you ride on an outside seat that you will get thrown around a bit.

 

*We liked Thunderhead quite a bit, especially when we rode in the first row. It really has that "out-of-control" feeling as well as some nice moments of airitme. We ended up riding it three times.

 

*Tennesse Tornado proved to be my 2nd favorite standard Arrow coaster. While on the short side it proved to be very fast and intense...as well as suprisingly smooth.

200704290159.jpg.48c47e764c4167c1b2c208b68ae57c8c.jpg

We simply love our new friend.

200704290157.jpg.8e667d52343b0bfe078aadd3430a3e04.jpg

Then you use the "ride Menu" to pick which ride you want to ride next.

200704290154.jpg.00a50f9e381a07e3058f1f42e627b366.jpg

You first decide on what shows/times you want to see.

200704290155.jpg.932ae2548c6473ddf6431af66c077100.jpg

As well as Qbot items to proudly buy and wear.

200704290152.jpg.9c47863d8f59a2d82cbf842a1af573d5.jpg

There they are, waiting to be rented.

200704290151.jpg.6da7b220efa5d0b64a19cb045c5de4ac.jpg

Check out how inexpensive it is. You would be stupid not to try this out.

200704290150.jpg.02255f4220d0a99dc620ba6ba81109c0.jpg

You can use it on these attractions/shows.

200704290149.jpg.bba094f279b2ae223c590c9304dabbfc.jpg

Here is the building to pick them up.

200704290148.jpg.2259c3f99ee6e89a38e5e516ff0ca585.jpg

So we can get one of these brand new Q2Q machines.

200704290147.jpg.b09f0db0fdce452d0e48c9dfd5d2596f.jpg

Time to enter the park.

200704290144.jpg.468d104f514d31356cfef5bb12173edb.jpg

No Huss flat ride for us today.

200704290146.jpg.1abdb4530dc6301d92f06d3823c36d8d.jpg

Ok, that is much better.

200704290145.jpg.5b78277a2a0c1ce123e75a670097882e.jpg

Oh no! We came to the wrong park!

200704290142.jpg.4f678cea397aed161d17ed249063a98d.jpg

See, more butterflies.

200704290141.jpg.18e15b6afbe9b19fb92c3db34969a87f.jpg

Almost to the park gates.

200704290140.jpg.78cf68537dfc1e1f77c14ad052c2a2eb.jpg

The parking lot was filling up fast.

200704290139.jpg.7a2e82e2379ac85cf1c22fb6195d14ac.jpg

Dolly Parton's butterfly logo can be found everywhere in the park.

200704290138.jpg.f2553b36f95936d2113049f6bc060aaf.jpg

The World Showcase, Dollywood style.

200704290137.jpg.dedf90379765521ece70429ef808b629.jpg

At least the parking lot was open.

200704290135.jpg.2896618eb25e4ab2bd77cc3adca9d024.jpg

There was a long line to get into the parking lot 60 minutes before park opening.

200704290134.jpg.d429d94ba0fcc153092ab821e6e5aa63.jpg

If you work at Dollywood, you pick up your uniform here.

200704290132.jpg.00829efacd4bfb5854b8b6da4adab1cc.jpg

Though it has the world's shortest pool slide.

200704290133.jpg.2adc264e448abbd899c031219167d853.jpg

We stayed here. Nothing too special, but it was clean and inexpensive.

More Dollywood!

200704290213.jpg.a66fcd836beb0078072bb44c309e01ac.jpg

Blurry tornado damage.

200704290212.jpg.4d771131a132a367bdce7de80b3e89e3.jpg

Is this the largest loop that Arrow built?

200704290209.jpg.2923ad51d181a0d3d2c318e94044df73.jpg

While on the short side, this one is very fast and intense.

200704290211.jpg.4ebf0370db0f8257962024bbbd5e32d9.jpg

Up the super tall lift hill.

200704290208.jpg.5c946a220279ce23b0e61d68013cf72b.jpg

Everyone put down the restraints.

200704290206.jpg.ddca33ed3d2649aab3acdc5465b106e4.jpg

See what I mean?

200704290205.jpg.dc42747d9634b167d0b0bf95658f0636.jpg

There is a coaster station inside this building.

200704290204.jpg.f9c8a52ecbe0730431e13a803f13bca4.jpg

Like this impressive Arrow coaster.

200704290202.jpg.fd05301643fefbbdfcb1aeb2dfdc7888.jpg

I guess you can go to church while in the park, but we still had credits to earn.

200704290235.jpg.7ed23ea6fe6888d0400e224d3ca33e78.jpg

Instead of standard paper cups. We got plastic Mystery Mine ones.

200704290234.jpg.7a0e32c7faa8b62a31980cfcba48f344.jpg

We should have bought 3 of them.

200704290233.jpg.d21e7665f5c66bced05e5595afb8e917.jpg

Yummmm...The cinammon bread was amazing.

200704290200.jpg.9360461be848dcae16d6a5cd27f4b606.jpg

Something really amazing is created by this mill.

200704290199.jpg.74aa8b5c7a0d7139be393ddda066a602.jpg

I guess all the kids had to sleep on the floor since there was only one bed.

200704290198.jpg.de618ec7cf7618964d8752ceb0aeb9cb.jpg

We visited Dolly's childhood cabin recreation.

200704290196.jpg.8dfeddd7ad2fb207ffd4bfd1dcfd0e44.jpg

Awww....We miss Soren.

200704290194.jpg.ab731087c8d84ab31580ea8197c268a1.jpg

See! More amazing theming.

200704290193.jpg.8da778c75c9c7b608eddf96395e44e38.jpg

Heart attack in a pan.

200704290192.jpg.d2bfa4dc4f1bd15d878ca263e9e6ec18.jpg

This is where you start seeing and smelling some amazing things.

200704290191.jpg.6ac7bc5434d99e222b5f941960936f65.jpg

The entire park was this nice.

200704290186.jpg.196521ac94eacfa5606d8f3308bb7ce3.jpg

Who said playing with scissors wasn't fun?

200704290182.jpg.de5708e696c3b4b6dea7c751d7b72600.jpg

With the shows, you get to sit in the very best section...kind of like Busch Platnium passholders.

30 minutes for Thunderhead, or 5 minutes? You decide.

200704290178.jpg.1ae1111f0c17b8c517472eb648ca693b.jpg

Ok, that's much better!

200704290176.jpg.adc7528c9576f7f5f8742617e1a4e672.jpg

Awwww....Mystery Mine looks lonely.

200704290175.jpg.4293fc78bc4207240ac48672cfd1dcda.jpg

Hey! What is that new building above your head?

200704290174.jpg.81460eef9b3353453e2057769e3bcfea.jpg

Just in case you forgot its name.

200704290173.jpg.c85d916bbfb8a5c758a2d4fb4dcde4e1.jpg

We enjoyed Thunderhead, especially in the front row.

200704290172.jpg.f8079b4c906c144e29ac64df43b0972e.jpg

Yes, its closed.

200704290169.jpg.b92405233085f4bdbbcb44dbb911cea0.jpg

The turns of this coaster are very tight.

200704290168.jpg.0ba0c079d576519db7663c614caf7910.jpg

While not rough, some of these coaster transitions can shake you up a bit.

200704290170.jpg.536688d0a796f6aa7c96e6adb0470407.jpg

The theming was quite top notch.

200704290181.jpg.fd51e669ec0e6428dc5797489ecae411.jpg

30-60 minute wait? Or a couple of minutes? You decide.

200704290180.jpg.cfaad109ba3a9e1309634ed6b8ed9baf.jpg

It only took us around 90 seconds from entering the station and getting seated on a car.

200704290165.jpg.b1cc42807d97b0bc26aba56f39687876.jpg

All about Mystery Mine.

200704290164.jpg.e55e613c3d9e80c8f4fa010f79380a05.jpg

But who cares? We got our Q2Q machine.

200704290167.jpg.63bc62b6cee0a3ebb0eacf4e0c940d6c.jpg

Boy that line really looks long.

200704290166.jpg.c4ecc1449df0dea44a39b493a60f004c.jpg

The birds on this ride are simply evil.

200704290163.jpg.1d04df6d60f8d8b1c527335c28e39c02.jpg

Everyone's Photo TR has this shot.

200704290161.jpg.2643e2643f5b03ab7e100dbd48b36948.jpg

I think everyone here already knows about Mystery Mine.

200704290160.jpg.16e3ed77b8995df9dfbf27be50585efe.jpg

Plus they have rides as well.

200704290158.jpg.1af8347dbe08103f57a4ab9d5e38d83f.jpg

Dollywood is simply a really nice park.

Man they have built soooo many rides since my last visit!!!

 

They only had Tennessee Tornado coaster wise then. I must have went on the perfect day, because not only were there no lines, we didn't even have to get off the rides to go again, they just said if you want you can stay on.

Ok, final section of this Photo: TR.

200704290253.jpg.94bef05193b4c58648438da254d25736.jpg

Thank you Dollywood, and thank you for reading.

200704290252.jpg.68fa201068cebcc2ec34539a10ce7985.jpg

Make sure you get your Qbot early. I understand they sold out quickly.

200704290248.jpg.1285260c8decd1bedca98c5ecd2791a0.jpg

Even though the park was closed, you could still reserve ride times.

200704290246.jpg.386a54e37702f4fdaf03fd2ab1b213a4.jpg

Never seen this photo before.

200704290245.jpg.147bfb3472d2dae36e9704707999151b.jpg

Sploosh!

200704290244.jpg.53358781416af805abd430e27998166e.jpg

We though it was one of the better water flume rides.

200704290243.jpg.6fcc526002edb8277fc8445fba67267a.jpg

Water ride #2

200704290242.jpg.ed3b460216111d328da3d0f0d5bf43a6.jpg

The train ride was fun. It goes up a mountain for a 5 mile round trip ride.

200704290231.jpg.580571f40e813ff31168e9db8effc2a5.jpg

These Irish shows are still very popular.

200704290230.jpg.404794e41de77e66de668e9c0182ba96.jpg

The girl in green was simply amazing.

200704290227.jpg.a15bff8ad3951f21b2ae78c1d0488f2e.jpg

Time for another show.

200704290240.jpg.a6847e9182e55fdf9dde30b7902975d6.jpg

While it may look like it, you do not have to steal a kid to ride this ride.

200704290238.jpg.eafb6d943703c8c28e53ce9ab82ac3f1.jpg

These cars are not built for tall people. It was a real struggle to sit down with the lap bar.

200704290239.jpg.b3dfd12707dac0485a6193490fe33b45.jpg

You can not use a Qbot for this one.

200704290224.jpg.2d5efbe7920293ddbc61d0516d0a2e79.jpg

You pretty much see the entire layout in this photo.

200704290241.jpg.729a38fd75c02dd6230f075d2c9383d8.jpg

This is a totally shameless credit.

200704290225.jpg.d4c6632a2cef8c7126270633e0964ddd.jpg

How is it going Julie?

200704290223.jpg.3ae287900f792be706aaf83a5cb19351.jpg

We got a little wet on this one.

200704290220.jpg.b340fda5f7042343fa05c323aa05d2be.jpg

An American in jail.

200704290216.jpg.49b35ff46d6a01c4d08071c3e9ef3c04.jpg

The dark scary loading area.

200704290215.jpg.d91a52d08d4046047ef378b5158126b8.jpg

Scary looking fire fighter.

200704290214.jpg.4079ab38e791f06885a5449929cc5c59.jpg

Yes that is its name.

200704290218.jpg.616bb25ee3a106247eb992bb0e9d57b4.jpg

There is a dark ride/coaster in this building.

Ohh, I just love Dollywood! In 10 hours, I rode every ride, Thunderhead 3 times, and between lunch and dinner, I ate a box of Potato Skins, 2 scoops of ice cream, 1 handful of saltwater taffy, and an entire bag of multi-colored Kettle Korn! Dollywodd has the best themepark food ever!

 

There were no lines, so I could take my time, do lots of shopping, and take lots of pictures.

 

Timber Tower is nothing special. Do not regret missing it much.

ERIK!!!

 

Dude! Glad to see you had a blast! Every time I see an Erik Johnson PTR, I get excited. You do a fantastic job at making me feel like I'm actually tackling the parks with you!

 

Thanks!

I can't get over how cheap Q-bots are at Dollywood as opposed to, say, Great Adventure.

 

Execellent TR, as usual, Erik.

What the heck?! I stayed at the exact same hotel over this past weekend. (mmm free pancake breakfast) When did you guys go? We could have hung out.

 

Anyway great report, I hope I can get to Lake Winnie later this year.

How weird is that, since I think you are the first person I ever talked to on TPR (You helped me plan our Carowinds trip if you remember). We got in late Saturday night, ate pancakes at the same place on Sunday morning before hitting Dollywood. We ate them again Monday morning before heading out of the area around 10.

Makes me want to skip Cinco De Meyo at Mexico (Epcot) and head to the hills!

 

Did you visit the famous Gatlinburg while up there?

 

Go DAWGS!

 

We did not go there on this trip, but I have been there before.

Well crap. I was at the hotel from Thursday to Sunday and went to Dollywood on Friday and Saturday. I guess I should have gotten up earlier Sunday for breakfast.

 

Maybe next time...

So they crowds would have been pretty bad without Q-bots? What day did you go on? How bad do you think it would be in the middle of the week? I ask because I myself am planning a trip up there soon. If it's anything like everyone says, I'll have to shoot for a couple of days there, is that what's 'needed'?

It was very crowded when we were there on Sunday. There was no way that we could have done as much as we did without the Qbot. While a weekday will be less crowded, I would still recommend getting a Qbot. They are really inexpensive for everything it does. You get guaranteed seating for the main shows (and sit in the best seats). Why wait 20 minutes for a ride when you can get on in less than 5? You really only need one day to see Dollywood, especially when you have a Qbot.

Awesome photo TR Erik! It's really cool to see another Dollywoo trip, along with SFOG and Winnie. Q2Q looks like it will REALLY help at Dollywood! Seems as if no one had knowns about it yet! I will have to use that on my trip. Looks lik eyou had alot of fun!

Erik, this was an excellent trip report. I'm looking forward to going to Dollywood in a month and I'm seriously contemplating getting the Q-bot if the lines are long.
