Golden Ticket Awards

2023 Golden Ticket Awards set to return to Dollywood

The 2023 season is upon us. Soon, new rides, new shows and new experiences will be thrilling park guests around the globe. This September, Amusement Today celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Golden Ticket Awards. Dedicated to the “Best of the Best,” the industry’s most sought-after awards recognize rides, innovation, installation, leadership and entertainment.

But the Golden Ticket Awards weekend is about much more than accolades. Industry professionals from around the world gather together to talk best practices, innovative ideas and solutions, making the GTAs “The Networking Event of the Year.”

Dollywood will welcome the industry on September 8 and 9 to its beautiful DreamMore Resort as the host hotel. Plans are just beginning to get underway. Attendees can expect the grandest of southern hospitality, and the kind folks at The Dollywood Properties say to expect surprises. Set the dates on your calendar now to be a part of this enjoyable and invaluable experience. Industry professionals are welcome to attend. Stay tuned for more information. Registration will open this summer.

Since hosting most recently in 2012, Dollywood has added numerous attractions, including the award-winning Wildwood Grove section and the new-for-2023 Big Bear Mountain, the park’s longest roller coaster.

While Amusement Today’s expert panel votes on numerous categories, be mindful of the industry-only voting categories such as Leadership, Best Innovation and Best Installation. A select panel will also vote on Best New Show. Be ready to put your best foot forward when nominations open this June.
