Wildwood Grove Brings New Adventures to Dollywood

Guests of Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort and Spa have more adventure awaiting them at the adjacent Dollywood Theme Park than ever before. 

A hidden land awaits guests just beyond the fallen, hollow tree trunk in Wildwood Grove, Dollywood’s extraordinary expansion for 2019. The new area provides families with an adventurous journey of exploration, imagination and play. 

Wildwood Grove features 11 thrilling new experiences for guests to explore, including a new suspended family coaster called Dragonflier, the Wildwood Tree, live entertainment, various indoor and outdoor play areas, a new restaurant and more. 

Dragonflier is Dollywood’s ninth coaster. While riding in a car suspended below the coaster’s brightly-colored tracks, riders feel as if they are soaring with the dragonfly as it dips and darts along the gushing geysers and lush landscape of Wildwood Grove. Dragonflier is one of six new ride attractions in Wildwood Grove. 

At the heart of Wildwood Grove is the Wildwood Tree. The green, leafy canopy is adorned with thousands of butterflies that dance playfully in the breeze. As the sun sinks in the sky, Wildwood Grove glows warmly as lanterns and lights glimmer like cheerful fireflies. Once darkness falls, the area sparkles as the Wildwood Tree comes to life each evening in a unique nighttime experience that features the butterflies glowing in an enchanting kaleidoscope of spectacular color. 

Guests looking for a place to cool off in the summer or warm up when the weather gets chilly will find that the new indoor play space is a great retreat. Hidden Hollow provides a climate-controlled area when guests are looking to recharge before their next big adventure. With climbing structures, slides and multiple games, play time here is full of exploration. Another refreshing stop for play is at Wildwood Creek where numerous pop jets, splashing pools and more await. There, families can discover their musical side thanks to the various “instruments” available to play. 

So much fun and adventure is sure to work up an appetite. Wildwood Grove’s new restaurant, named Till and Harvest, is a mouth-watering Southern twist on fresh Southwestern favorites. Guests will enjoy build-your-own entrée style burritos, tacos, bowls and salads.  

Wildwood Grove is Dollywood’s largest expansion ever and an experience families won’t want to miss. 

Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort and Spa guests receive exclusive park perks including complimentary TimeSavers (skip the line at Dragonflier!), complimentary trolley service to and from the park, Saturday early entry and more!
