Wilderness Pass sits at the very top of the hill at Dollywood Theme Park, which is the perfect starting point for one of the park's most popular rides: Wild Eagle. It also features FireChaser Express, a great ride for families, and a bunch of carnival-style games. There's just a few dining options here, so the lines can get a bit long as the day goes on. Splinter's Funnel Cakes is definitely worth a stop if your sweet tooth is calling.

Top 3 Things to do in Wilderness Pass

No 1 Icon
Ride Firechaser Express
Firechaser Express is a charmingly-themed ride that's thrilling yet mild enough for the family to enjoy. It's our favorite in Wilderness Pass, but we don't seem to be alone in that sentiment, since lines can get pretty long.

Ride Wild Eagle
Wild Eagle is the signature ride at Wilderness Pass. It simulates the flight of these majestic creatures, taking you through the trees and into the sky. It's definitely not one for those with height problems, but for those without, it's a beautiful flight.

Food & Drinks

Splinter's Funnel Cakes
Funnel Cakes
Price: $10 - $15
Funnel cakes and drinks are what you'll find here. You can order your funnel cake plain or with various toppings. The plain funnel cake is just okay, but adding whipped cream and strawberries make it so much better. They also have other toppings, but absolutely get the whipped cream.
The Dog House
Hot Dogs
Price: $10 - $15
This eatery serves up Nathan's Famous Hot Dogs in either a bun or as a corn dog. It's a great quick lunch or dinner that will fill you up while you're enjoying the park.

Thrilling (Fast with Potential High Elevations & Loops) | Wild (Intense Speeds, Extreme Heights, and/or Loops)
Firechaser Express
Height: 39"
Intensity Level: Thrilling
This coaster is by no means the most thrilling or the most unique in Dollywood, but it's definitely one of the most popular and most enjoyable coasters in the park. The theming is fantastic, and the reverse launch is a fun twist near the end. Lines can get a bit long, due to its popularity.
Wild Eagle
Height: 50" min | 78" max
Intensity Level: Wild
If you've ever dreamed of flying, Wild Eagle is the perfect ride for you. It takes you high above the theme park as you soar through the trees. With one of the biggest drops in the park, this one is definitely not for those with a fear of heights.
