Disclaimer: I have not been financially or otherwise compensated for this post but I’m pretty dern tickled to be able to give some of you a vacation so that is a good size payment to me! This park is fun for all ages, my seven year old enjoyed it just as much as my 81 year old grandmother! I personally don’t ride roller coasters but I happily serve as photographer for those who do. Hmm…what else can I disclaim? Oh yeah, *the dates for cabin reservations exclude all peak and holiday time frames; lodging is offered based on availability. And one more personal disclaimer just so I can say I disclaimed in a thorough manner: I hate water chestnuts. Now enter the contest and tell your friends! 

Stay tuned for my post on taking my family to Dollywood!
