Big announcement planned at Dollywood Wednesday

PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (WKYT) - Wednesday is expected to be a big day in the Smoky Mountains, as Dolly Parton says she'll make a huge announcement about Dollywood.

However, the legendary singer and leaders of the amusement park in Pigeon Forge aren't giving hints about what that announcement will be.

They do say it will take Dollywood to a whole new level.

"If you go all the way back to 1982 when Dolly told Barbara Walters she was going to build something like a Dollywood, and then in 1986 when we opened," Dollywood spokesperson Pete Owens said. "Those were big, this is maybe bigger."

While the speculation and rumors continue, our sister station in Knoxville, WVLT, did find where the park applied for a new trademark for something called "Fire Chaser Express."
