Just announced Big Bear Mountain will be coming to Dollywood in 2023!
Dollywood’s largest ever park expansion, Wildwood Grove, is getting even bigger! Debuting in the spring of 2023, Big Bear Mountain will be the longest coaster at Dollywood, taking guests of all ages on an unforgettable family-friendly expedition in search of the Big Bear.
Circling Wildwood Grove for nearly two minutes on 3,990 ft. of track, this gigantic coaster is a first of its kind at Dollywood with onboard audio, including music and announcements from Ned Oakley himself.
The project marks the largest single attraction investment in the history of Dollywood and represents the next step in the $500 million expansion plan first announced in 2021.
Ranger Dolly herself shared the news on the Dollywood Facebook page just moments ago. You can watch the video below.
Big Bear Mountain joins the eleven other attractions of Wildwood Grove to continue the story of this hidden land just beyond the hollow log.
As Dollywood’s newest land grows in size, so does its charm, making it an even more wonderful place for families to have fun, relax and be together surrounded by the beauty of the Smoky Mountains. Continue your adventure and discover all the stories of the Grove.
