The engineer sounds the whistle and your 20-minute mountain excursion is under way. Our authentic 110-ton coal-fired steam engine takes you on a breathtaking five-mile journey through the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains where you'll enjoy pastoral scenery and some of the most beautiful views that nature has to offer. Close your eyes and enjoy a fascinating trip back in time when travel in and out of the mountains of Pigeon Forge relied on trains like the Dollywood Express.
Special Attraction Information: The Dollywood Express schedule is subject to change and closures may also occur due to maintenance or inclement weather conditions, including lightning.
