Jukebox Junction is Dollywood's charming 50's section, complete with classic car rides, a theater, a coaster, and even a drive-in. Red's Drive-In is a favorite of frequent visitors and offers classic burgers and shakes with some pretty great fries. Rockin' Roadway lets visitors cruise in a classic Cadillac, Corvette, or Thunderbird at their own pace on a track. Kids absolutely love being able to "drive" in this ride. For thrill seekers, the popular Lightning Rod coaster is the main reason for visiting. The outside of the ride building is beautifully themed and great for photos. The Pines Theater offers a cool, classic venue for enjoying musical performances and shows, so it's great if you need a break from walking in the hot sun.
