Barnstormer Fact Sheet

A ridge along the lush, wooded terrain of Dollywood’s Craftsman Valley area is home to the Owens Farm which, back in the day, hosted the exciting Dueling Daredevils aerial shows that came to town and filled the sky with breathtaking stunts.  Today, the Owens Farm carries on that fine tradition of great entertainment with the Barnstormer.  Situated amid a fun, barnyard-theme, the gigantic swing takes riders on a thrilling sway, back and forth.  With each massive swing of the two pendulum arms, the Barnstormer reaches higher and higher into the sky, eventually traveling to heights of 81 feet.  As the Barnstormer climbs high above the Owens Farm, riders feel the rush of the aerial daredevils whose high-flying maneuvers set the course for this exciting Dollywood ride!
