  1. The ride is already visible if you're riding: The Train, Powder Keg, Wildfire, and the Giant Swing (can I get confirmation on this last one?). People will see it and go to it if they are so inclined. I don't know if it's plainly visible from elsewhere in the park like a lot of roller coasters are in other parks, but that's true for most (all?) of Silver Dollar City's coasters until you start getting closer to them. Confirmation. Outlaw Run pretty much dominates Wilson's Farm now, which includes two flat rides: the Giant Barn Swing and the Hi-Lo Silos (a rope climbing ride). Actually, due t
  2. Silver Dollar City's best ride is Wildfire. Ultra-smooth, big drop, big inversions, no brake section until the end--it does it all. Outlaw Run is poised to bring Wildfire's reign to an end, though, and I couldn't be happier.
  3. Certainly. http://binged.it/QDj2KA Not sure what the ride height will be. The drop height will be 162 ft., but the other two roller coasters in that area have drop heights greater than the ride height due to the bluff that goes down to the lake (that bluff is also the reason the train takes a turn northwest in that area). Powder Keg: 98' ride, 110' drop Wildfire: 120' ride, 155' drop So, knowing the topography, I'd say we're looking at 130-140 ft. ride height.
  4. You can get tickets at a 50% discount for SDC, White Water and Stone Mountain Park. Do you know if that is reciprocated? We live in the Ozarks, and are SDC season pass holders. We've never been to Dollywood, but that wing coaster looks pretty awesome. Yes, it is. If you have a season pass at SDC, you can get a general admission ticket to Dollywood at the same discount. Excellent. That'd be pretty affordable, then.
  5. 8/21. I learned a lot. My first real roller coaster was an Arrow mine train (Thunderation).
  6. Silver Dollar City has two. The first is the waterfall path between Wildfire and the Lumber Camp restaurant. Unfortunately, you can no longer walk behind the waterfall, but it's a beautiful area. We'll often get a skillet from the Lumber Camp and sit at one of the picnic tables in this area to eat. The other is the circular path between Midtown and Tom and Huck's. This path was once quite busy when the Tom and Huck's area was new, but since they took out the Runaway Ore Cart (kiddie coaster) and playground to make room for the RiverBlast, this path kind of circles around the back side of t
  7. ^ SDC has continued to impress me over all these years, since my dad first took me when I was about 5, and the only roller coaster was Fire in the Hole. We rode that and American Plunge (the highest drop in the park at the time) over and over. With the one exception of BuzzSaw Falls, I have loved all of their rides, and I've no doubt the ones at Dollywood will match the quality I've come to expect.
  8. Absolutely. This may be my most anticipated coaster ever, and is the reason I've been lurking on your forum every day for about the last month. You can get tickets at a 50% discount for SDC, White Water and Stone Mountain Park. Do you know if that is reciprocated? We live in the Ozarks, and are SDC season pass holders. We've never been to Dollywood, but that wing coaster looks pretty awesome.
