Summer is here, and that means vacations may be back on the radar for many. After months of businesses, bars and theme parks being closed, they're slowly starting to open back up just in time for the season. One of these spots is Dollywood in Tennessee, where guests will be able to get their thrills on these rollercoasters again.

Dollywood and Dollywood’s Splash Country will be opening to the public starting Wednesday, June 17. For pass holders, the park will be open exclusively to you on June 15 and 16.

Craig Ross, president of Dollywood, stated in a video on the official website that "the health and safety of our guests and employees have been our top priority in guiding every decision we've made."

Ross also discussed the changes that would be coming to ensure visitor and employee safety.

Two of the significant changes the park is implementing include limiting daily capacity and that everyone over the age of three will be required to wear a mask at all times, except for when eating, splashing at the water park, and while on certain rollercoasters.

Like other theme parks starting to reopen across the U.S., touchless temperature screenings will be taken before entering. Guests with a fever of 100.4 F and over will not be allowed inside.

Visitors will also have to answer a four-question health survey before entering. 

While you stand in line before getting onto your favorite rides, floor decals will mark where to stand to stay socially distanced. Dollywood recommends avoiding touching the queue rails when possible.

Guests will also notice hand sanitizing stations set throughout the park, and high touch areas will be cleaned and disinfected more frequently throughout the day.

Dollywood's website includes everything you need to know before you return to your favorite stomping grounds.

Taking a ride on the Barnstormer, Daredevil Falls, and Mystery Mine is just days away. It looks like summer won't be so boring after all.
