Hatfields and The Mccoys-- Not going to Happen

While I was in town this weekend, eating lunch at Get'n Basted (of course), talking to my friends that live in the area.. I was very surprised to be told the RFD had been resold again!!

Yep sold this year, recently. The buyer? none other than Dolly's Dixie Stampede! Yep, bought the building and all the land adjoining.. Nothing like buying out the competition before they even start up..

Of course my questions was what now? Acrobats staying? doing a differnet show there? what?

I was told they were planning on leveling the building.!! I dont know about that detail!, WOW!! Thats a lot of expense, just to level the property and not to worry about return on your money.. Stampede must be making a FORTUNE!!!.

I also am wondering, IF Stampeded did indeed purchase this, since they are managed by HFEC.. who actually bought it? Stampeded? or HFEC..

Full demo doesn't really bother a company when the cost ofa retro fit of the existing building exceeds starting all over. Look at the old Baldknobber's theatre. I know nothing of the inside, never been in there. But the outside front was one of the nicest looking theaters in Branson.
The same may well be true of the RFD. Too costly to turn into what the new owners want.

So what's the connection between World Choice Investments and Herschend Family Entertainment?

The company also co-owns and co-operates with partners Dolly Parton and her company The Dollywood Company, the dinner and theatre company Pirates Voyage Dinner and Show in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina[1][2][3] and Dolly Parton's Stampede (formerly Dixie Stampede).[4][5][6]

The Dollywood Company

The Herschends extended their brand in 1976 upon purchasing a small tourist attraction in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, called Goldrush Junction. The following year the attraction was renamed Silver Dollar City Tennessee as part of a development plan to transform the property into a theme park patterned after the original Silver Dollar City in Branson. For the Pigeon Forge park, the Ozark Mountains theme of the original Silver Dollar City was slightly reworked to represent the Great Smoky Mountains and Appalachia culture instead, fitting the location in the foothills of the Smokies.

In 1986, singer and actress Dolly Parton, who grew up near Pigeon Forge, became a co-owner, and the park's name was changed to Dollywood, reflecting her involvement. At this point, the Pigeon Forge park was branched off into a separate division of HFE called The Dollywood Company, which oversees all the properties that Dolly Parton has interest in.[8]

Along with the Herschend family, Dolly Parton co-owns the Dolly Parton's Stampede (formerly Dixie Stampede[6]) dinner attraction chain, which has locations in Pigeon Forge (opened 1988), Myrtle Beach (1992), and Branson (1995). A location in Orlando opened in 2003 and closed in early 2008.

In 2001 a new water park was opened adjacent to the Dollywood theme park called Dollywood's Splash Country.


In 1994, The Dollywood Company constructed a large music theatre in Pigeon Forge called Music Mansion. Headlined by James Rogers,[9] the highly successful theatre was operated by HFE until 2001, when it was sold to Anita Bryant. In 2005 the theatre was sold again and converted to a WonderWorks location. A Music Mansion Theatre was planned for Myrtle Beach, but never materialized.

In 2003 the Dollywood Company opened a new Dixie Stampede location in Orlando, Florida along Interstate 4. The location operated until early 2008, when the property was sold to Simon Property Group for an undisclosed amount. The building was torn down, and an extension of the Orlando Vineland Premium Outlets was built on the land. HFE has plans to build another Dixie Stampede in the region at some point, though specific plans have not been disclosed.[10]

World Choice Investments LLC is the managing company for Dolly Parton's Stampede, and you can find that verbiage on the bottom of the Stampede Home Page:
