Dollywood to expand
Dollywood has started work on a five-acre expansion. The new area will have eight new attractions including a family coaster, and a new restaurant. Ken Maples with Pigeon Forge Hospitality and Tourism says the expansion is only in the beginning stages. Work has started on infrastructure needs such as storm drains and sewer systems. The five acre expansion reportedly is part of a $300 million expansion. Dollywood spokesperson Pete Owen said: “Dollywood is consistently working to expand and improve our parks and resorts. We do not have anything official to announce at this time. Dolly will announce future plans for the Dollywood company later in the year.” City leaders say they do know is that this new expansion will help bring more tourists to Pigeon Forge.
