P. 771: Onsite employee housing under construction at Dollywood

Recommended Posts

Excuse me as I have been a little out of the loop...this coaster appears to have a similar design to the X-coaster, right? I think this would be an awesome addition to Dollywood. Isn't this only the second one of its kind?

 

I am in China right now and coming home for the Summer...it appears that I will have to make it my top priority to make it there!

It looks like Eagle is using the Allen Bradley Panel View plus touch screen and Raptor uses some type Siemenes product. I wonder if the controls use the same processors or not (don't know if there is a difference with one being European and one being in America). A company called Consign does all of (most of) B&M and GCI's controls including both Wild Eagle and Raptor.

Well, they are both B&M Wingrider coasters, but their layouts are different from each other. All the wingriders have unique layouts and WE's is an out-and-back and the three others have a more compact layout. If you order the four existing B&M wingriders by opening date, then its #1 -Raptor, #2 -The Swarm, #3 -Wild Eagle and #4 -X-Flight. hope that helps.

Well, you can still find plenty of European coasters with Allan Bradley controls!

^Makes sense especially considering that the same controls company did both jobs.

 

For anyone that is interested in attending the Season passholders preview day Friday May 23 the pre-season pass sale ends this Sunday.

 

Please tell me you meant March 23rd as me and my family would hate to be the only riders on passholder preview day. Wait! What am I saying? Yes! Yes! All you passholders go on May 23.

From anyone's past experience how crazy is the pass holder preview day and opening weekend?

 

Very. The year Thunderhead opened, it was insane, I expect much of the same this year...

 

That's what I've gathered, so we should plan on buying Q2Q to make life easier.

Will the Q2Q be available on Passbolders Preview day? (or necessary)

Hey all! I have Friday-Monday April 6-9 off from school for easter weekend, but I can't go home because it's too expensive. I can, however, drive four hours west to Dollywood on one of those days. Since I've never been there before and I want to ride Wild Eagle, which of the three days (Easter it's closed obviously) should I go? Thanks in advance guys!

Of those days, I would probably pick Friday. For whatever reason, when people design themselves three-day weekends, they always seem to pick Monday as their third day, not Friday. But it is a holiday weekend, so be prepared for anything.
