PIGEON FORGE — Dollywood’s next roller coaster will sit on a 20-acre pad in the northwest section of the park, according to plans approved by the city planning commission Monday.

Park officials have indicated there are plans for a new, family style coaster in the past. The last new coaster was the Dragonflier, a kids coaster in the new Wildwood Grove section that opened in 2019.
