In 2019, a world of discovery and adventure is opening in Dollywood! On Aug. 3, 2018, Dollywood announced the details of its biggest expansion ever — Wildwood Grove. The new addition to the theme park takes imagination to a whole new level with 11 different themed experiences. Timber Tops Cabin Rentals has all the details you need to know about Wildwood Grove.

About Wildwood Grove at Dollywood

Wildwood Grove combines the natural beauty of the Smoky Mountains with pure imagination! The goal of this expansion is to bring families together, and Wildwood Grove will do just that. It is a place at Dollywood where families will create memorable experiences they can come back and repeat for years to come, and kids and parents both will have the time of their lives exploring, imagining and playing together! It is located right by Timber Canyon. Once you step foot through the fallen log, you’ll feel like you’re in a whole new world!

What to Expect at Dollywood’s Wildwood Grove

Wildwood Grove has something for everyone in the family, from the youngest children to the parents! Learn all about the new rides and the fun you can have when you visit.

Wildwood Tree: The Wildwood Tree is located in the heart of Wildwood Grove. It provides the perfect platform for performers to show off their talent and is decorated in beautiful butterflies. At night, the butterflies light up and transform the canopy into a kaleidoscope of color.

The Dragonflier: The Dragonflier is a thrilling suspended coaster that darts along the geysers and across the ground. If you’re looking for a thrill, you’ll love this ride. It’s the largest and the fastest in its family of coasters.

Hidden Hollow: Hidden Hollow is a secret play area filled with a variety of family-friendly activities. There are net towers, suspended bridges and more! If you have toddlers, there is even a special area designed just for them.

Treetop Tower: Treetop Tower lets you soar through the sky on a leaf canopy as it spins around before gently drifting to the forest floor.

Sycamore Swing: Have you ever seen a swing big enough for the whole family? The Sycamore Swing lets you all enjoy the ride together as it rocks you back and forth and flies high through the sky.

Frogs & Fireflies: This ride bounces you up and down as you race around the lily pad! The kids will have a blast chasing Franklin Frog around.

Mad Mockingbird: You get to control your own ride experience on this flying scooter as you race around a high-speed circle.

Benjamin Bear: Hop on the back of your new black bear friend who will take you on a journey through the woods along the Black Bear Trail! Keep your eye out for the fun surprises you’ll encounter along the way.
