P. 771: Onsite employee housing under construction at Dollywood

Recommended Posts

I was there on Sunday and saw the construction site. This thing is huge. And it is really going to help balance the park out with its location. The park is very lopsided right now with all of it's coasters on one side of the property. This will start to even things out and help to control the flow of guests.

Looks like there's gonna be some themeing at the top of the hill, there! You can see the crest of the launch but there's wooden structure going much higher. Didn't see anything of the sort in the video, so I guess Dollywood has yet more surprises in store for us!

Looking good! Love that none of the ride can be seen from inside the park. This has the same mystery that The Beast has where you don't know what lies beyond the top of the lift.

Hopefully that makes sense to someone.....

^I got it!

But remember we've got the quadruple down coming down the hill into the huge "non-inverting half loop" in plain sight too, which is basically a 180 degree spiral turn into a steep drop into the brakes, a bit of a FullThrottle-esque ending if you ask me. This thing is gonna charge hard right into the brakes. It's gonna be sick!

You're right, but the drop will be complete instead of braking during it. That drop is also coming after 3500' of track before it, so it will feel like a complete layout that never loses steam. Kinda like if Storm Runner were longer!

Just got back from Dollywood and Lightning Rod looks amazing.

I knew this thing was big, but this lift hill really gives you an idea of its size... weird part is, after seeing the size of this lift hill, launched at that, you'd expect it to be a much longer ride than 3800 ft. Oh well, not complaining at all... can't wait to ride this masterpiece.

Omg... It's so big.

 

Can't wait to ride this coaster. It is looking better and better with each new photo!

 

(p.s. - Thanks for the photos!)

 

(p.p.s. - I really want to know whats going on at the top of the launch hill with those weird supports!)
