  1. I just saw 2 new things available for purchase on the Dollywood "add-on experience" page: (I copied and pasted from their site, hope that's okay)


    SkyZip Night Flight - $69 per person


    Soar over Dollywood AT NIGHT on Dollywood’s very own zip line experience, SkyZip. PLUS, enjoy premium seating for Dolly's Nights of Many Colors. Tour begins at 8:00 p.m. Reservations required and guests must be 48” to ride.


    Wild Eagle All-Access Tour - $150 per person


    Ready to soar with the eagles? Jump on the Wild Eagle All-Access Tour and you’ll fly where very few have flown before…at the top of Wild Eagle’s massive lift hill before the park opens for the day.


    This extremely-exclusive tour allows just eight participants the opportunity to ascend Wild Eagle’s lift, aided by an experienced tour guide, to survey the park from the summit. At the top of the lift, tour members participate in a Q&A session with the tour guide, who also will take pictures of you to help document the adventure.


    From your perch more than 200 feet above Dollywood, your bird’s-eye view offers commanding sights of Dollywood as well as the Great Smoky Mountains. Tours take approximately one and a half hours, which includes outfitting in a full-body harness, ascent, time at the top of the lift and descent.


    Following the tour, participants enjoy a guided tour of Wild Eagle’s maintenance bay and a 15-minute Q&A session. Afterward, guests board the day’s first Wild Eagle train for an exclusive ride at park opening.


    Your tour guide then hosts the group for an All-You-Care-To-Eat Buffet breakfast in Aunt Granny’s private dining room. Tour guests receive an exclusive Wild Eagle All-Access commemorative t-shirt, as well as decreased ride wait time at Wild Eagle for the remainder of the day.


    The Wild Eagle All-Access total tour time is approximately four hours. Only one tour takes place each Saturday beginning June 1 through Nov. 2. The cost is $150 per person, which also includes free parking. Dollywood admission is required.


    Tour Requirements:

    Participants must meet the tour guide at Tram Stop B at 7:30 a.m. Those who miss the tour departure forfeit the tour. The guide will transport guests to the front gate, where they also will verify participants’ ages by checking a valid photo ID.

    All guests must sign an activity waiver. Those younger than 18 years of age must have a waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian.

    Guests must be between 50 inches and 78 inches tall and weigh less than 300 pounds.

    Due to harnessing requirements, participants may not be pregnant.

  2. I'm almost ashamed to admit this, but my first coaster with inversions was the New York New York one in Las Vegas. I had always grown up going to Kings Island and Dollywood, but was terrified of the Vortex and other upside-down coasters for some reason. Somehow in Vegas (no alcohol, I was only 15) I decided what-the-heck attitude, and let them take me on. Luckily it was decent enough that I survived and enjoyed it, and went on not to be scared of them anymore!

  3. Dollywood now (hence the name). I go at least 6-8 times a year, usually with my mom. Occasionally I'll go by myself, if I'm in a coaster mood and no one is available. I'm a school teacher, so it's easy to head over anytime in the summer.


    Growing up, it was Kings Island. My mom would either take me and we'd do the park together, or she'd drop a friend and I off for the day and tell us to meet her at the entrance or the Eiffel Tower at x:xx time.

  4. I have a few questions:


    1) My husband and I will be in Tampa in early June. What day of the week is typically best to visit: Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday? We won't be there on Monday, and I'm automatically taking out Friday.


    2) I see Play & Dine tickets for $85 online, is this a good deal? The cheapest one day ticket I saw on their website was $80, so of course I would take the $5 extra, but I wonder if I'm missing something...


    3) Is the front of the line pass worth it? I know "worth" is different to each person, but we want to ride all of the big coasters while we are there, preferably more than once. So if we can't do that in a day, we would definitely need this pass.


    Thanks for the help!

  5. Thanks for the clarification on the Water Challenge, sounds fun although a bit chilly! I've ridden Cyclone only once this season, but I highly doubt any of that water is coming back in the cup. I take it you want front seat on this ride so that the water isn't hitting you from everyone else's cup as well...


    P.S. - seeing the posts about the person with bad grammar, THANK YOU Robb for making this a place where only proper "speaking" is allowed, nothing irritates me worse than terrible grammar or textspeak.

  6. 2010 & 2012 have been the years for the most new coasters for me, and they're not that many:


    2012 (16): Top Thrill Dragster, Corkscrew, Gemini, Raptor, Firehawk, Batman, Dare Devil Dive, Cyclone, Goliath, Mindbender, Ninja, Superman, Mine train, Scorcher, GASM, Wild Eagle


    2010 (13): Millenium Force, Blue Streak, Mean Streak (ow), Maverick, Cedar Creek Mine Ride, Iron Dragon, Magnum, Diamondback, Flight of Fear, Crypt, Boo Blasters (does this count since it was a new old ride?), Surf Dog, Flying Ace Aerial Chase


    Up until 2010, the only 2 parks I had ever been to were Kings Island and Dollywood. My new goal is to go to at least one new park every year.

  7. I really liked this show as well as the Waterpark one before it. Although I love roller coasters, I have not been to a lot of theme parks - Dollywood, Kings Island, Cedar Point, and Six Flags Over Georgia are it. So, it was awesome for me to get to see these other coasters out there. I was shocked though like most of you were at the winners, I didn't pick either one. Both of the winners seemed kind of blah to me compared to the other choices.


    Can't wait for the episodes that feature coasters I've ridden in the next few shows!

  8. Hello everyone,


    I am a new poster as you can see, but I have been reading these forums for about 1.5-2 years now and finally decided to register due to this event! I am about 90% sure I am going to come to the Deep South Bash, but I've got a couple of questions:


    1) My husband is working that weekend, my best friend can't come, and my other friends are weenies...so will there be a group or groups for me to join when I get there so I'm not wandering around all day?


    2) I'd like to spend the night, but can't afford two nights. Which would be better Friday night, so I can get morning ERT but I will miss evening ERT? Or drive in Saturday morning (arrive around 10-11), and spend that night there.


    3) Is anyone coming from East TN that would like to carpool? I hate driving to Atlanta.


    4) My mom works for Marriott, which means a steep discount for me. Are either of these decent hotels? (They are the cheapest by far, if I can stay at one of these safely I may be able to squeeze in 2 nights if my husband agrees).
