PADUCAH, Ky., March 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Grab your helmet and tighten your boot straps, Dippin' Dots Ice Cream returns to Dollywood theme park in Pigeon Forge, Tenn. with an exclusive fire chasing flavor.

Dollywood park guests will experience an explosion of flavor with new Dippin' Dots FireChaser Cherrybomb Ice, specially developed for Dollywood and its new FireChaser Express, the nation's first dual-launch family coaster.  FireChaser Cherrybomb, available only at Dollywood and Dollywood's Splash Country, delivers a refreshing sour cherry and fruit flavor with unexpected bursts of popping candy.

"It has a great mix of flavors," said Dollywood's Pete Owens in a recent television interview with WVLT, Knoxville, Tenn.  "The popping candy really helps bring it home for FireChaser Express."

A new exciting flavor isn't the only thing Dippin' Dots brings to Dollywood this season.  The original beaded ice cream introduces the Tennessee Tornado Sundae Shop, an amazing Dippin' Dots destination that serves a menu of Dippin' Dots treats such as sundaes, shakes and floats.

"Returning to Dollywood has been a thrill for the entire Dippin' Dots team," says Dippin' Dots LLC director of sales, Adam Gross.  "Saturday's opening marks the culmination of hard work and determination, not to mention the vision, creativity and quality that have been devoted to this project."

Dollywood opens for the season this Saturday.  Dippin' Dots will be served at six locations within the Dollywood theme park and at two additional locations inside Dollywood's Splash Country waterpark.  All eight locations will serve the new FireChaser Cherrybomb flavor.
