This week our very own local Theme park, Dollywood, received the highly coveted Applause award. The award is presented every other year by Liseberg amusement park located in Gothenburg, Sweden. Dollywood competed against, Alton Towers in the UK and Phantasialand in Germany for the 2010 award.
Entertainment legend, Dolly Parton, accepted the award for the park. “We are so honored to win this award. Our success over the last 25 years is because of the great team at Dollywood that I lovingly call my other family! All those folks back home cooking, cleaning, entertaining and landscaping – I am proud of every one of them,”-Parton said. The Award comes as the park completes a successful and eventful 25th anniversary season.
Dollywood was one of three finalists for the honor in 2006, along with Legoland and the winning Universal’s Islands of Adventure. The family park Xetulul, located in the rainforests of Guatemala, won in 2008. Previous Applause Award winners include Epcot, Disneyland, Europa-Park, and Silver Dollar City.
We would like to Congratulate our friends at Dollywood, for all their hard work, that was put into achieving this highly acclaimed award!
