Dollywood in Pigeon Forge kicks off another big season in the Smokies this weekend, and one of the new attractions that fans are looking forward to is the debut of the new Wild Eagle roller coaster. The $20 million addition to the theme park is being hailed as the first steel winged coaster in the United States, which means that passengers sit on either side of the track rather than on it or under it.
Although this past winter has been one of the warmest on record, spring still doesn't officially arrive until next week. But don't tell Mother Nature that, because she's already given us a head start on spring-like temperatures here in the Smokies. Look for temperatures in the 60s and 70s all week, with plenty of sunny days in the forecast.
As you travel around this part of the Smokies, you're bound to run across more than one company advertising its zipline course. It seems that just in the past few years, they've been springing up everywhere. But before you are lured in by the first sales pitch you hear, take some time to compare apples to apples and oranges to oranges. When you do, we think you'll still agree that our Pigeon Forge ziplines are the best thing going around.
