Dolly Parton's Dollywood amusement park has announced a $37 million expansion with rides, a restaurant and live entertainment. The expansion is called Wildwood Grove and is planned to open next year.

In a news release, Dollywood said that the investment meets the company's 2013 commitment, of $300 million over a 10-year period, four years ahead of schedule.

The expansion will include six ride attractions, featuring a suspended family roller coaster called The Dragonflier. There will also be various indoor and outdoor play areas for families.

Parton said, in the release, that Wildwood Grove will give visitors a place to "explore, play and imagine together — but more importantly — it's a place where they can spend more time together."

The $37 million Wildwood Grove expansion will open in 2019.
