The newest attraction at Dollywood for 2019 is their largest expansion yet and many Dollywood fans local and abroad have been waiting for it to open. That time will be in just a few days as Dollywood presents Wildwood Grove’s grand opening on May 11th for 2019!
What is Wildwood Grove at Dollywood? Here’s what their official website states:
Beyond an ancient hollow log and into a hidden land, Wildwood Grove beckons the explorer in all of us. Let curiosity be your guide as you journey ever deeper, past sparkling creeks, through a charming village, and under the mighty limbs of the great Wildwood Tree. This is where adventure takes root and dreams take flight.
Dragonflier mimics the flight of a Smoky Mountain dragonfly as it speeds through the terrain in a most unpredictable path. With the rush of wind and the thrill of flight, there’s nothing more exhilarating.
The Mad Mockingbird
On any given day, a colorful variety of mockingbirds dart around Wildwood Grove. Celebrating the wonder of flight, guests take part in The Mad Mockingbird as they dip and soar in an aerial ballet.
Every autumn a shower of colorful leaves blanket the forest in Wildwood Grove. Inspired by the floating leaves. Visiting guests soar through the sky on a lofty leaf canopy as it spins and soars overhead before gently drifting downward to the forest floor.
The Wildwood Tree
Encircled by a plaza rich with nature and plenty of spots for photo ops, The Wildwood Tree is bedecked with a collection of butterflies dancing colorfully in the breeze. The gnarled bark of the tree is subtly carved with oversized musical instruments, as if music rises from its very soul.
At the heart of the Grove, directly across from the iconic Tree sits Wildwood Creek, a welcome “oasis” for cooling off, making music and taking a break. A scenic creek winding through the area, it invites young and old to roll up their cuffs, wade in and splash around in the cool mountain water.
Near The Wildwood Tree, a secret play area named Hidden Hollow, beckons families with a collection of kid-friendly activities for participatory play.
We can’t wait until tomorrow comes for the attraction to be revealed! See more on Wildwood Grove at https://www.dollywood.com/themepark/Rides/Wildwood-Grove.
