Dollywood Discussion Thread

P. 771: Onsite employee housing under construction at Dollywood

Recommended Posts

Oh god...regardless of what the ride turns out to be, the name is just atrocious. Really? Shot Rod?

Doesn't sound like a roller coaster to me, if you know what I'm saying...

No, it sounds like a coaster to me but more of a lazy name.. Like a name you would find at a six flags park without much of a theme.. Haha but that's just me

 

Just sounds lazy and generic especially for Dollywood standards

It's a short and catchy name. Easy to build a logo around and slap on t-shirts. It's good enough for me, and I'm usually the picky one.

 

Kinda lets the cat out of the bag that this will be a launched coaster themed to hot rods though... Now we just have to wait 5 months to see the details.

My fiancé and I were at the park last week in line for MM when all of a sudden 4 or 5 park maintenance guys showed up and instructed the ride operator to shut down the ride and empty the station. Everyone was told the ride is now closed and to leave. Yesterday we were back at the park and MM was up and running so we went back. We asked one of the young ride operators what happened and he said Dollywood had found out that the restraints that MM used had been recalled and Dollywood was still running the ride with the old restraints. So the ride was shut down while Dollywood investigated, repaired, replaced any needed. Anyone heard of this recall or know more? Could it be something of the six flags fatal accident?

 

 

Mystery Mine would be a GREAT ride if it had the same kind of restraints as Dare Devil Dive.

I agree and I have said that for years.. My gf doesn't think so though she hates the lap only restraints of DDD haha

With that being said Mystery Mine blows DDD out of the water with theming, and I actually enjoy the layout of Mystery Mine more, but the otsrs kill it.

WOW that song is amazing. I'd never heard it before today and thank you for sharing, ernierocker. Now every vinylphile on TPR is searching their parents' collection for the 45. Sounds like a perfect fit for this new attraction and reminds me a little bit of the Doo Wah Diddy City area of Opryland. I can't wait to see what unfolds.

^Oooooooo! Snot Rocket! I think we have a winner here!

 

The station would be a giant head, and when it sneezes, you would be launched like a giant booger from it's nose! This would work as Tteenneessee is well known as the allergy capitol of the US.

Is TN really allergy capital of the U.S.?? I've lived here all my life and never heard that, but it wouldn't suprise me none the less lol.

Yes Knoxville is always on the top of the list when it comes to cities with the most allergies.. Maybe not number 1 but its always towards the top

 

Just checked last year's top 20 and Memphis, Chattanooga, and Knoxville where all three in the top 15 haha!

The first time I saw the name I read it as Short Rod. I kept reading it like that and thinking what the heck it was. It wasn't until the next time I checked this thread that I saw it as Shot Rod. Definitely has a better ring to it
