20 Year Pass To Dollywood

Saturday, April 2, 2005 2:55 PM
What if you went to Dollywood and decided to see a sneak preview of the Moscow Circus and instead you where giving a strange ticket as you entered the building. You sit down thinking you where going to see a circus and instead Dolly Parton comes out and tells you, along with 1599 other people, that the ticket in your hands is really a free 20 year season pass. What would you do?

The gift is estimated to be worth $8 million, Dollywood officials

Wow, thats cool!

I loved Dollywood. I went for the very first time in December, and I could see it becoming one of my favorite, if not my favorite, park period. The staff was so friendly, food was so good, and the coasters, even with just 3, were all great (okay, Blazing Fury was only just Good:)).

I can't wait to go back this summer, I'm trying my best to talk my parents into going with me when I go this time, as I'm sure they'd really enjoy it. The park was a lot like Souther WV, where I live, and I loved it. Just like being home.

I think this was a great thing for the park to do. I'm just sad I wasn't among the guests that recieved the 20 year passes. :( :)

Yeah, but Dollywood isn't there for the money anyway- it is there to provide jobs for the locals, many of which are Dolly's own relatives.

Dollywood is giving away the gate- but not to make more money, but to thank the guests who visit it, which, IMO, is the best way to do it.

Remember- Dollywood isnt your typical theme park, it cares about its guests and rewards them, they are really not into it for the profit.

How can you say they aren't into it for the profit, CoastermanX?

They may not have the same goals as a large company like Six Flags, but saying they aren't there for a profit is ridiculous.

Jeff's avatar I don't get where this insane notion comes from that one can't give the customer what they want and make a killing doing it.

They do make a killing- but the goal of Dollywood is not to strictly make money.

Dolly has to have income to pay for all that plastic surgery.

Is Dollywood a business or a non-profit organization?

Yeah, that's what I thought.

Dollywood has one goal=making money.

How do they do it? Some of the best customer service in the industry (listen up SFI...).

Why do you think Wal-Mart thrives? They give the customer what they want. Now tell me they're in it to give jobs to the community (which they provide, with a lot of other nice things)...

Char, I'm from Welch, McDowell County, about an hour from either Beckly or Bluefield :).
