PHOTO TR - Dollywood August 13th-16th/Rehoboth August 21st


Recommended Posts

So I finally made it to Dollywood after wanting to go for so long. I headed there with my boyfriend (Alilstronger) who thank god loves theme parks as much as I do. Plus we both belonged to this site which was pretty funny because I rarely meet anyone who is into it as much as I am.

 

We headed out from Baltimore at around 12am Friday morning and drove straight to TN so we arrived around 8:30ish, then headed right to the park. On a side note, we didn’t realize there was soooooo much to do in Pigeon Forge besides Dollywood.

 

These pictures were taken with my camera phone since I forgot my camera at home!

 

Just a few notes

-Tennessee Tornado was a great Arrow Looper IMO

-Most of the coaster were closed Friday

-Mystery Mine ride was down Friday to Sunday but we got a complimentary ticket for Monday and it finally opened at around 1-ish and it didn’t disappoint!

-Thunderhead was GREAT especially in the back.Top 3 wooden coaster for me!

-The Cinnamon Bread as SOOOOOO good!

-Dollywood Splash Country was better then I expected

-Mountain Slidewinder was AWESOME!

-The park was BEAUTIFUL

-The bumper cars were pointless to me...lol

The sign was exciting! But getting up there and finding out that Thunderhead and Mystery Mine were closed was not a good start :-(

Thanks for posting these. I feel the same way as you about Dollywood. I knew it was going to be nice, but was completely blown away when I visited. The food was AMAZING (changed the name to Dollyfood) and Thunderhead was just awesome.

 

Glad you had a good time!

This trip was sooooo fun sweeite!!!!!

 

My favorite none coaster was Mountain Slidewinder and I was pissed Timber Tower was closed ALL 4 DAYS!!! I have never seen better food at an amusement park and I will admit (a lot of people on here will hate me for this) I did NOT like the cinnamon bread. I am not big on cinnamon.

Nice report, I've always wanted to visit that water park and think it looks great

 

The waterpark was definately a HUGE suprise to us.....The setting is what really adds to the whole feeling of the park I think. The green body slides were pretty fast and it felt like you were going forever.

We headed to the beach for the day in Rehoboth Delaware and headed over to Funland for some rides. The place can get very packed but for 20 dollar you get 90 tickers which is a deal. The lines aren't too long and move pretty fast. The Haunted Mansion is always great at night! Also don't go to GROTTO'S head over to Nicolas Pizza, it's way better!

Bite your tounge heathen!!!!

 

Well - I guess it is not for everyone, and if you don't like cinnamon, definitely not for you...on the good side, that leaves that much more for the rest of us!

 

Thanks for the pictures.

Awesome, I haven't seen Rehoboth's Funland in forever. We were there in October, but everything was closed up, couldn't even walk through it. Nicola's is good, but I definitley prefer Grottos. Of course the best food in Rehoboth are the Thrashers Fries.
