    Dollywood Announces
    New Attraction, Show for 2009 Season

    Adventure Mountain honors the
    Great Smoky Mountains National Park's 75th anniversary


    PIGEON FORGE, Tenn., Aug. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Dollywood's 2009 season features the new Adventure Mountain attraction and Imagine presented by Le Grand Cirque, the new show that will headline Dollywood's annual Festival of Nations in the spring.

    Adventure Mountain celebrates the great outdoors and natural beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, which marks its 75th anniversary in 2009. Dollywood is located near the entrance to the national park, the most-visited in the country, which welcomes more than 10 million guests annually.

    "The beautiful Smoky Mountains have long inspired me and my music, and they're certainly at the heart and soul of my Dollywood theme park," Parton said. "My new Adventure Mountain attraction not only lets families explore the great outdoors together, but it's a way for all of us to celebrate these mountains and the folks like me who call them home."

    Adventure Mountain, a two-acre outdoor terrain, will be located in Wilderness Pass, home of Dollywood's award-winning coasters Thunderhead and Mystery Mine. The $5 million addition features five different courses to challenge the strength and skill of every member of the family. Guests will encounter a waterfall gorge, rugged mountain trails, and zip lines. Guests can engage in individual pursuits or family competitions. Visitors will get a rare glimpse into the lives of park rangers who protect and preserve forestland as they learn to tackle the elements. Rugged mountaineers can choose from a variety of nature's challenges to test their skill and agility. Young tenderfoots can take an Adventure Mountain trek to Camp Teachittoomee. Ranger guides introduce tykes to kid-friendly adventures, teaching them new skills and crafts to prepare them for outdoor adventures of their own.

    During Dollywood's Festival of Nations, the park unveils Imagine presented by Le Grand Cirque. A cast of world-class international athletes, performers and acrobats combined with beautifully executed costumes and sets perform feats to dazzle the eye and stretch the boundaries of the imagination. Imagine delivers acts that include pole climbing, contortionists, men's bungee, mime artists, hand balancing, unicyclists, silk ropes and a Diablo act. Imagine also is renowned for its dramatic lighting effects, which include one act performed under an ultra-violet light. Dollywood's Festival of Nations begins March 28, 2009, and concludes April 28, 2009.

    I was hoping Adventure Mountain would be similar to say Big Thunder Mountain. Anyway, it still sounds like a good way of incoporating the natural environment of the Great Smokey Mountains into Dollywood.
