Take in the sights and sounds of Dollywood and the Great Smoky Mountains aboard the Dollywood Express, a genuine 2-8-2 Baldwin Steam Locomotive. These behemoth locomotives (Klondike Katie, No. 192, built in 1943 and Cinderella, No. 70, built in 1939) burn off tons of coal, consume 5,000 gallons of water and weighs 110 tons. The Dollywood Express provides one 20-minute ride every 45 minutes.
You will experience a five-mile journey through Dollywood and catch a glimpse of Dreamland Forest, Rivertown Junction, Craftsmen’s Valley, The Village, Country Fair, Showstreet, Jukebox Junction, and Adventures in Imagination. The Dollywood Express is one of Dolly Parton's favorite rides and if you are lucky, you might just see her riding up front with the engineer. There is no height requirement and the Dollywood Express is located in The Village.
