  • Dolly Parton is afraid to ride her own rides at Dollywood


    Dolly Parton’s Smoky Mountain theme park Dollywood is celebrating its 25th anniversary, and to mark the occasion, the musical legend is opening a new attraction at the Pigeon Forge, Tennessee hot spot.

    The seemingly fearless singer-songwriter spoke to Fox & Friends about Dollywood, where she let it slip that she doesn’t actually ride the rides at her own park!

    The new feature, called Adventure Mountain, is being unveiled on March 27, but Dolly says she hasn’t tried out “America’s Largest Challenge Course.”

    “It’s not set up for high heels,” Dolly laughed. “And the artificial nails… I could just lose so many things!”

    The singer says families will love the physical challenge of the ropes course, but confesses that she doesn’t know about the experience first-hand.

    “I usually don’t take part in the rides or all of the things that they have going on,” admitted the busty legend. “But I know it’s wonderful.”

    Parton does have one good way to judge a ride’s popularity, however.

    “The scareder I am of it, the more the kids seem to want to do it!”
