Country Fair Kids’ Rides at Dollywood
The Country Fair area at Dollywood is a great place for kids and families. Most of the attractions and rides are well-suited for the under twelve set. A few of them, like the Dizzy Disk and the Scrambler, offer a bit more excitement and speed. Regardless, Country Fair is the place to spend time as a family. Plus, it’s right next to the Dollywood Express!

The Country Fair section of Dollywood has evovled over the years. During the first decade, when the park was known as Rebel Railroad and Silver Dollar City, TN., the area was home to a log flume ride with a backstory. The log flume was the very same ride from the 1964-1965 New York World’s fair. Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, when Dolly Parton became involved with the park, the area slowly expanded into what we see today.

The Country Fair section of the park can get pretty crowded during the mid-afternoon. I suggest that you visit first thing in the morning or later in the evening. For some of the rides, the queues can wind around each other, especially near the Dizzy Disk and Lemon Twist.
There are other children’s rides dispersed throughout Dollywood, which gives the younger ones something to do while other people ride the world-class coasters.
If you haven’t been to Dollywood before, then check out my articles on the Pigeon Forge theme park. Dollywood is known for having great coasters, amazing food and the friendliest staff anywhere. It’s also one of the most beautiful theme parks in the world!
