Dollywood’s 11th annual Thrills in the Hills event is back July 12-13, and with it comes all the behind-the-scenes access and inside information that coaster fans love.
Guests can find out what makes their favorite Dollywood attractions work with behind-the-scenes tours, participate in exclusive ride time, and tuck in to the food that the park is known for. “Exclusive ride time”, or “ERT,” means that guests will get to experience more of the thrills and fun on Dollywood’s rides.
Check-in for the event will take place during the evening of Friday, July 12, with a special reception and ERT to follow.
The fun continues on Saturday, July 13, with an early morning behind-the-scenes tour and breakfast. After that, a catered lunch, reserved seating for one of Dollywood’s award-winning shows, an evening snack and ERT are also included. Each guest of Thrills in the Hills will receive a free event T-shirt and event-themed swag, as well as free event parking.
In order to guarantee your shirt size, it is recommended you secure your spot and order tickets by July 1. Directions for submitting your shirt size will be included on the print-at-home tickets.
As a bonus, Dollywood’s Splash Country water park is available as an add-on experience for July 14. Tickets are $89.08 for regular guests, and $53.45 for passholders. Child ticket discounts are available.
