PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (AP) - Dollywood theme park's latest ride is a water coaster called RiverRush.

The ride is in the Splash Country section of the park in Pigeon Forge. It opened on Saturday and Sunday with another weekend coming up before opening fulltime on May 25.

The Mountain Press reported that Dolly Parton said the opening of the Wild Eagle roller coaster gave Dollywood its largest attendance to date last year and the idea of the water coaster grew from that.

Asked at media event Friday if she were going to ride on the RiverRush, Parton begged off, quipping she'd lose her makeup, her hair and her pride if she did.
