New Heights and Sights to Behold at Dollywood in Pigeon Forge

A new generation of roller coasters that give you a watery rush, a salute to the children who sailed on the Titanic and a giant Ferris wheel await visitors to Pigeon Forge and the Great Smoky Mountains in 2013.

RiverRush, Tennessees first water coaster, opens in May at Dollywoods Splash Country waterpark. It comes a year after Dollywood itself premiered Wild Eagle, the first wing-design roller coaster in the U.S.
RiverRush adds water to the climbs, drops, twists and turns of traditional terrestrial coasters. Four-person toboggan-style boats climb 237 feet up a conveyor as the 1,175-foot-long ride begins.
Its four stories tall, with hairpin turns and dark tunnels that create an unexpected waterpark experience.

On June 22, Dollywood inaugurates the Great American Summer, six weeks of extended operation. A live performance of The Star Spangled Banner starts each day at 10 a.m., and a music-synchronized fireworks display called Dollys Nights of Many Colors caps the day off at 10 p.m.
Dollywood won five Golden Ticket Awards in 2012, the industrys top awards. Among them were awards for the best live entertainment and for being the friendliest park anywhere.

The Titanic Museum Attraction is honoring the 133 children who traveled on the Titanic in 1912. Discover the Children of Titanic is the theme of special exhibits and events about the luxurious ships youngest passengers.
The childrens stories are no less important or dramatic than those of the ships elite passengers, said John Joslyn, leader of the first private exploration dive to the shipwreck.

You can get a high-flying birds-eye view of Pigeon Forge and Great Smoky Mountains National Park at the Great Smoky Mountain Wheela towering Ferris wheel lifting you 200 feet in the air.
The attraction opens in spring as an early component of The Island in Pigeon Forge, a retail-entertainment-dining-lodging complex. Find information about all aspects of Pigeon Forge at MyPigeonForge.com or call 800-251-9100.
