Dolly Parton Announces New Roller Coaster Attraction at Dollywood Theme Park

Dolly Parton announced a new attraction on Friday at the Dollywood Parks & Resorts.

Big Bear Mountain, the new roller coaster at the Dollywood Parks & Resorts in Pigeon Forge in Tennessee, will be nearly 4,000 feet long and cost over $25 million.

Parton announced the addition of the Big Bear Mountain during a media event at Dollywood.

“The Smokies are all about adventure and going exploring. I’m excited our guests will be able to head out on their own trip into the Smokies to see if they can find that Big Bear,” Parton said.

Big Bear Mountain will have a maximum speed of 48 mph, with every ride lasting about two minutes.
