Tennessee parks are arranged alphabetically.

Dollywood
Pigeon Forge (in the Smoky Mountains, near Knoxville)
Major theme park celebrating country music, Smoky Mountain culture, and Dolly Parton with a lot of fun coasters and rides. Adjacent water park

Fun Mountain
Gatlinburg
Small park in the Smokie Mountains includes a handful of kiddie rides, a few thrill rides, and a long chair lift.

Lake Winnepesaukah
Chattanooga
The small, traditional amusement park, known as "Lake Winnie" to the locals, is physically located in Georgia on the state line. The park advertises itself as being in Chattanooga, however.

Libertyland
Memphis
The traditional amusement park, which included Elvis' favorite ride, the Zippin Pippin wood coaster, closed in 2005. (The Zippin Pippin was relocated to Bay Beach, a park in Wisconsin.)

Ober Gatlinburg
Gatlinburg
In the winter, it's a ski resort. In the warmer weather, it's an "amusement park," although only in a liberal interpretation of the concept. Ride the aerial tramway (the country's largest!), careen down the Alpine slide, and get wet on the two water coasters.
