Dollywood's Big Bear Mountain Roller Coaster Announcement with Dolly Parton and friends 8/5/2022



Music Superstar Dolly Parton joins leaders of Dollywood to announce Dollywood’s newest attraction – Big Bear Mountain Roller Coaster located in the WildWood Grove section of the park.
This Vekoma roller coaster will be Dollywood’s longest at 3,990 feet and will be themed to a Big Bear expedition in the Smokies. It will have three launches and pass by waterfalls and butterflies on its twisty path back to the Outpost.

Dolly also answers a few audience questions and offers an update on her upcoming NBC movie currently being filmed at Dollywood, and she lets us know it will air before this Christmas.
