Dolly Parton is a modern day jane-of-all-trades, but who knew the Queen of Country was also a theme park connoisseur? Dollywood, the entertainer's thrill park is a full-fledged amusement extravaganza with rides like Dolly's Demolition Derby bumper cars and the Dollywood Express steam engine. The park is actually considered Tennessee's number one ticketed tourist attraction. Sure, Parton's won her fair share of Grammys in her time, but she told the AP her theme park is "one of the greatest dreams she's ever had come true." Still not getting enough Dolly? Her water park, Dollywood's Splash Country, is right next-door. Who cares about "Song of the Year" when you have your own roller coaster with a 100-ft. drop?
