What’s it Like to Ride Dollywood’s Frogs & Fireflies? (Review)

You can find this fun ride in the Wildwood Grove’s area of Dollywood Theme Park. Near the Wildwood Creek. As you walk up to the ride and wait in the line, you will see their adorable frog shaped cars. If your little explorer gets motion sickness, they might want to skip this one.

Once its your kiddo’s turn to board, you will help them get on their seat and buckle up their safety belt. After that you can either walk towards the exit and wait there until the ride is over, or you can hop in with your kiddo. The ride host will check everyone for safety and then they are off on their hopping adventure.

As the ride starts, the frogs raise slightly and start their journey. The frogs go around in a circle AND bounce up and down, trying to catch the fireflies! The bouncing starts gently but quickly picks up pace. After about a minute of bouncing excitement, the ride gradually slows down, and finally drops back to its original position.

After the ride is over, parents can go back in through the exit doors and help their kiddos off the frogs ( and head back to the line to ride it again, if they are not too dizzy! )
