Dolly Parton grew up in the Smoky Mountains, and her theme park borrows heavily from her local heritage. The rides range from tame to terrifying — providing something for everyone in your family. The performances and demonstrations are not to be missed either — many feature the country star’s family members — nor is a chance to see Miss Parton’s former tour bus. Tip: If you arrive after 3 p.m., your admission is free the next day.
