Dolly Parton Adds New $10 Million Attraction To Dollywood

Dolly Parton plans to inject $10 million more into her Dollywood theme park located in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, with Adventures in Imagination, scheduled to debut with the park's 17th operating season April 6, 2002.

The Adventures in Imagination expansion is one of The Dollywood Company's most significant to date and includes a newly constructed state-of-the-art museum called Chasing Rainbows, featuring interactive and "behind-the-scenes" collections, stories, and memorabilia from Dolly's life and career.

Other elements in the Adventures in Imagination area include a new 4-D action simulator ride, Smoky Mountain Wilderness Tours, which takes adventurers on a thrill-filled journey through the Smoky Mountains with Parton as their guide; a hands-on interactive toy store that will also serve as the theme park headquarters for Parton's Imagination Library program; and a new food location.
