^Neither would I!

I honestly think that when they do get their own version of Outlaw Run that they will end up putting it over by the County Fair section, though. They need a big ride over in that area.

I had planned to go to Dollywood this weekend, but just too hectic with Christmas this weekend and coming week. Going up there on closing weekend (Jan 3-5) to get my 2014 Pass Processed and weather permitting, getting a few last rides in until March!

Dollywood Trip Report/Fire Chaser Express Update

Postby jimmiemac02 » Thu Dec 19, 2013 11:44 pm

I went to Dollywood yesterday and took a few pictures so I decided to make a trip report. This is my first one so any comments or critiques would be greatly appreciated. Anyway, Fire Chaser Express looks wonderful. There is lots of track in place and they were working to put track in place while I was there. Although they do not have the track completed yet, it looked like about 50% of it was in place.

As for Smokey Mountain Christmas, the park looked great! I didn't think A Christmas Carol was that great, but I guess the Holograms were cool. All the other Christmas shows I had seen before and were great as always. As for Dolly's new family show, I thought it was a great update from the Kinfolks show that was there before it was.

Awesome update. The new coaster is looking great. I'm surprised they already have a plinko game for the new coaster. I guess its never to early to win a Front of the line pass. Dollywood looks great with all the lights and decorations in the park.
