Some exciting news hit the inter-webs this week about Dollywood and Dollywood’s Splash Country finally reopening this month!
The first two days, June 15th and 16th will be open to season pass holders only, and then starting on June 17th it will fully open to the public. Dolly Parton says the Dollywood has been blessed to work with some incredible experts at Covenant Health and with the State of Tennessee as they navigate through the coronavirus pandemic.
“Their advice and teamwork has provided untold help to make sure we are doing the right thing. We are excited to get open and to welcome families back to the Great Smoky Mountains. Brighter Days are here!” Dolly Parton said in a press release, according to USA Today.
New CDC safety measures will be implemented to keep people safe. A limited amount of people will be allowed to enter the theme park and as of now, all guests must make reservations before coming.
They said reservations will only be for up to two Fridays, Saturdays, or Sundays per month and/or three consecutive days per month. Almost all the attractions in the theme park will be open except for Lumberjack Lifts, Granny’s Garden, Lil’ Pilots Playground, Firehouse Fun Yard, Hidden Hollow, and Wildwood Creek.
As of now, the Flower & Food Festival, Harvest Festival, and Smoky Mountain Christmas festival will take place as normally scheduled. Masks must be worn at all times, except when eating, on water park attractions, or on specific roller coasters. Visitors must also bring their own masks.
Before entering the park, visitors will be subject to a touchless temperature screening. For those who have a temperature of 100.40 degrees or higher, they will not be allowed to enter the park and will be issued a refund.
That also goes for the employees, they will also undergo a temperature check. After visitors are inside, there will be readily available sanitation areas throughout the park for them to clean off.
