I believed at one time Dollywood had an indoor 3D  flying theater  that featured Dolly and a Cousin  in a Bi-plane flying over the Smokies. Dose that still exist?
SDC has always made a great past to remember

It was more like the hardware they use for Minion Mayhem at Universal.  No they removed the hardware several years ago and converted it to a performance facility that sits unused most of the season

No ride anymore.  It's a show theater now. When I was there last summer it featured a show called "My People, My Music" that features one of Dolly's brothers, cousins, and a couple of other family members.  It is also running again this year https://www.dollywood.com/themepark/Entertainment/My-People
This is a stick up!  Get it? Stick.... Nevermind, it's a train robbery.  I want everyone to get your hands up and act scared.

I am still placing bets on something happening in and around Lake Silver and then finally the long speculated area between PK and WF to eliminate the dead ends on that side of the park.

Like I’ve said before, I wish they’d rebuild LR (and theme it) and build a new themed log flume in the old WB lot - having both tie into Fireman’s Landing.  That frees up land over by PK/WF for a bigger project.

Pointed this out in a DW thread, but I think it's interesting that the HFEC President pointed out how successful lodging has been at DW: https://blooloop.com/features/jane-cooper-herschend-family-entertainment/

Still wondering when that is headed our way. Dreammore has been around for 3 years now and SDC has it's new coaster. Seems like the time is right to look outside the park for expansion before they throw more money at rides. I'm sure it's been discussed extensively in a boardroom somewhere.

I think a good place for the SDC resort would be where the employee parking lot is near TNT.  It could be incorporated intk an all new entrance area.  The offices housed above the ticket booths and OMP could be built into a subterrain level of the new resort along with a parking garage for resort guests and those employees
