Dollywood Barnstormer



Dollywood is adding a new ride called the Barnstormer next year. The $5.5 million thrill ride is situated in a barnyard-themed area, which also includes play areas for younger guests. The new area opens in March 2011 to usher in Dollywood’s 26th operating season. The Barnstormer is adjacent to the Mountain Slidewinder, one of the park’s most popular rides which opened in 1987.



The Barnstorm takes its name from the daring aerialists and stunt pilots of the 1920s. The ride features two pendulum arms with seating for 32 riders. The ride reaches a maximum speed of 45 miles per hour and 230 degrees of rotation. At its peak, the Barnstormer reaches 81 feet in the air. She Barnstormer rests amid a traditional red barn on the Owens Farm, a nod to Dolly Parton’s family’s rural upbringing.



“I remember my daddy and granddaddy talking about the old barnstormers that used to do all kinds of crazy stunts above the fields where they’d work crops,” Dolly Parton said. “My new Barnstormer ride offers folks those same breathtaking moments, high in the sky above Dollywood. And I’ve recreated a critter-themed barnyard that reminds me of growing up on the farm here in the Smoky Mountains!”
