  1. Nashville if you don't want to drive an hour out of state to Beech Bend, but that may be all about to change if Storyville Gardens comes to fruition.
  2. This is a reminder that "Christmas at Dollywood" will air tonight at 7 pm CST on the Hallmark Channel tv network. You can catch a sneak peek on the channel's website: https://www.hallmarkchannel.com/christmas-at-dollywood
  3. NS just got a bajillion times better. Kudos to the park and RMC. This coaster looks beyond stellar and...I LOVE JAPAN.
  4. I was at Dollywood last year on the Friday after Halloween. LumiNights was still happening and the crowds did pick up a little bit moreso at night than the day, but the rides were mostly walk-ons including Lightning Rod, which btw ran perfect all day. It's definitely one of the best times to visit the park!

  6. It was fairly vacant on my one visit way back in August, 2007, which I enjoyed. TBH it's kinda surprising the park lasted this long after though, but maybe they held many community events to keep it going, This is just too bad as it would've been cool to see the park develop into something akin to Knoebels south.
  7. Awesome! Hopefully a little phone call to the fair board helped a bit too. I'm really looking forward to trying out the Timberliner trains finally.
  8. It's probably been shared here before but for those less burgercentric, you're welcome:
  9. only 15 and into JA? I'm impressed (no seriously). tho I prefer "Nothing's Shocking". . in particular "the Mountain Song" over anything they did later on. It's my dad's all time favorite band, I found his CD copy of Ritual de lo Habitual the other day and curiosity got the better of me. I've been listening to NS on repeat for the past few days, so good it hurts. Ocean Size is one of my favorite opening tracks on any album, period. I'm in love. My friends and I were at a college Sugarcubes show back in the early 90's where a young lady in front of us was wearing a jean jacket that hand-paintedly read on the back, "Jane's Addiction". We inquired and said we'd never heard of...she said "You will", which I still remember to this day, and we did indeed.
  10. I LOVE this report and totally enjoyed seeing all the pics. Thanks SO much for sharing!
  11. Liseberg is absolutely one of THE best parks on the planet - what a total national treasure that cannot be understated, and I continue saying I had my best ever park visit day there on the TPR trip a decade or so ago (THANK YOU ROBB & ELISSA). The addition of Valkyria, not to be confused with the other Val diver or Kilmer, looks really great - plus that station! WOW. Thanks for sharing and bringing back great memories of my visit. I hope the park's meatballs w/ lingonberry sauce are still as great as ever too.
  12. I just noticed I posted that 8 years ago to the day. WOW time truly flies by! The park and area has changed so much just in that time span.
  13. Speaking of Dollywood before it was Dollywood and otherwise known as Goldrush Junction, here's a throwback Tuesday: http://www.themeparkreview.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=929419#p929419
  14. Hmm...reminder of this event Saturday https://www.themountaineer.com/preview-opening-of-revived-ghost-town-anticipated-this-fall/article_4f26a524-838a-11e8-a9c9-bf55f2044d8c.html
  15. And the angels sang, HALLELUJAH (the launch is not the issue confirmed)
  16. You can park for free in Pigeon Forge at the Trolley Station behind the Old Mill and ride the Fun Time "Dolly Trolley" as I call it to the park for 50 cents/person one way. I like leaving the driving and parking to them, and the drop off/pick up is very close to the park gate. https://www.mypigeonforge.com/planning/fun-time-trolley
  17. TOTAL WOW...10 short years later (seems forever ago) since my only visit with TPR and I hardly recognize you, Toverland. Stunning developments and photos. This is absolutely amazing looking and I would love to revisit one day. Thank you for sharing!
  18. I LOVE this thread already, and that Seaglass Carousel is a STUNNING work of art! Absolutely beautiful. I like how they used a bubble effect on the glass for the ride signage - just perfect. Only real bubbles floating around while in motion would make it even more triptastic. Thank you for sharing since I never knew it existed, and now I really hope to check it out on my next visit to NYC. I'm really looking forward to discovering more carousels I never knew existed in this unique thread!
  19. I've been to 4 or 5 HWN events now. They are a fantastic value for the money and well worth it in my opinion. In the past, my friends and I have gone to Kentucky Kingdom on Friday before the event, and then since Louisville is ahead of Santa Clause, IN by an hour, move to HW in time for the start of HWN. Definitely use the time change in your favor. HW knows how to treat its event guests right with lots of perks and loads of food too (FUDGE!!). The water park is usually more crowded during the main part of the day on Saturday of the event, but HWN has included ERT on Mammoth, Wildebeast, and a few other Splashin' Safari attractions during water park ERT, which I think was on Friday night last year. The dry park ERT on Friday night and Saturday is plenty enough to get in loads of rides on the coasters and a few other attractions they usually include like Gobbler Getaway, Firecracker, Crow's Next, Turkey Whirl, etc. They will feed you well on Friday and Saturday. I don't think you'll regret going to HWN by any stretch.
  20. File under "if it sounds too good to be true, ..." Too bad, as being from this area so incredibly rich in music history while majorly deficient in entertainment of this type plus with the closest theme park being a good 2.5 hours away in Birmingham, it could definitely benefit with some type of Opryland-like entertainment made local, though I question the scale of this bogus and fraudulent presentation. A park along the lines of OWA maybe scaled back a little would probably be more appropriate.
  21. Thanks for confirming. I never got to visit Inventor's Mansion, but as someone who loves gravity/fun house type walk through attractions, it has always intrigued me. Hopefully something even better will replace it in that spot, but I'm not holding out hope in lawsuit happy America for a similar attraction coming to the park. I think it would only be a ride through attraction if anything.
  22. Do my eyes deceive or is the old Inventor's Mansion/Dolly's Rags to Riches museum building completely wiped off of the top of the "cave"?
  23. WOW thanks for this awesome throw back! I grew up going to Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg for family vacations and remember visiting DW early on when it was still Goldrush Junction. My dad put me on my first flume ride there. I remember also the park had a Mad Mouse coaster unlisted on RCDB. Plenty of park nostalgia over here: http://www.themeparkreview.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=46005 .
  24. I noticed that COLD response too. Too bad. I really enjoyed this dark ride (prob a top 5 for me outside of Disney) and felt it was one of the more unique dark ride storylines. UGH.
