Dollywood to Add 10 Rides Next Year

Ten new rides will be added to the Dollywood theme park in time for the Tennessee attraction’s seasonal opening on March 26, 2005. The park will add 3.5 acres to its property in Pigeon Forge, Tenn., and the new rides will increase ride capacity by more than 2,000 passengers an hour. Construction will begin in November. Dollywood, co-owned by Dolly Parton, is Tennessee’s second-largest tourist attraction, drawing 2.2 million visitors annually.
