Is Dollywood Educational?

Yes. While Dollywood is known primarily as an entertainment park, it also offers a number of educational opportunities.

Dollywood has over 40 rides and attractions and complementary educational resources for a fun and educational experience.

For example, Dollywood’s “Science in the Park” allows you to test the theories of physical science as they apply to soaring roller coasters like Lightning Rod, Mystery Mine, and the Wild Eagle.

There’s also the Craftsman’s Valley where people can learn about traditional Appalachian crafts such as woodworking and candle making.
