What’s it Like to Ride Dollywood’s Black Bear Trail? (Review)

You can find this ride on the Wildwood Grove area and you won’t miss it as you walk by. Its a good idea to do this ride as soon as the park opens because the wait time in line can get pretty long. Once its your turn to get on your friendly bear, you hop on, with your kiddo if they are too small to ride on their own, and the friendly host will help you get your safety belt on. After they check you for safety, you are off on your adventure. This is a gentle, slow and peaceful ride but it can feel kind of bumpy because it does have a little bit of a bounce as you ride along the track. Your kiddos will definitely love this cute ride and you should be prepared to go on this ride with them more than once!.
