P. 771: Onsite employee housing under construction at Dollywood

Recommended Posts

Is it us being fanboys or you that has the irrational view and since of entitlement?

 

I am also curious why you have to buy tickets into the park ahead of time instead of just buying them when you get there?

The only thing an airline and dollywood has in common is they both are businesses and the comparison ends there.

 

Anyway, it looks like the season pass payment option has been extended till the 26! So if anyone hasn't gotten one, and has a US form of payment, I would take advantage of it!

Being an ACE rep doesn't mean that I have to overlook any park flaws or mistakes because "OMG they are getting a new coaster" or "OMG they have the best food ever". That's what fanboys do. On the contrary, real coaster enthusiasts point out the flaws in order to make the parks improve their way of doing business.

 

Oh god lets not go there. 'Real coaster enthusiasts.' I've never seen 3 little words drip with so much of a false sense of entitlement. 'Real coaster enthusiasts' will do whatever they want, whether they overlook a parks shortcomings, or not. At the end of the day we all love roller coasters, that's what makes us enthusiasts. Who can complain the hardest however, is NOT what makes us enthusiasts.

Good people of TPR . . . enough! Please put a stop to this pointless bickering now.

 

I think everyone has said their piece.

 

Thank you.

 

Noted. Apologies for adding fuel to the fire.

Anyone got more info on the March 24th media day? (I'd go but that is he same day as Carowinds passholder preview.

What time does the park close today? Might head up to take a peak. Lines don't look to long. How is park attendance today?

 

The park closes at 6:00 today. It doesn't seem very crowded at the moment and the lines aren't very long at all.

 

 

Thanks. I think I will head on up!

Great pics, WildEagle2014! But uh....don't tell me the Rockin' Roadway is shut down already! Hoping they have a MUCH better year this year with it staying up.

 

Also hoping the park has adequate numbers of employees this year as well to keep everything open.

I couldn't convince anyone in my family to come with me today, but I had already requested off and it is such a nice day that I decided to come by myself. It's actually been pretty fun even though I feel like a big dork for coming alone. Hopefully I can convince someone to come with me once lightning rod opens. All of my friends and family are chickens when it comes to coasters.

Heads up everybody! I spoke to friends at Dollywood today that talked to Pete who told them the good news that the coaster will be running Thursday. There was a running of the bulls to Lightning Rod today too, guess a lot of people didn't know it was closed...

^That's too bad but good for you for going even by yourself. I would feel awkward alone but I think if you can get over that awkward feeling it can be fun. Whenever I come up from Atlanta with a friend we would totally be willing to meet up with you for a while so you aren't visiting completely alone.

Woot. The more I hear this the happier I am! I should get ready to submit my PTO from work.

 

The running of the bulls part is both depressing and kind of hilarious.

I am not sure who that was because all I have said today is that Dolly will be here on Thursday but we do not know what the disposition of the ride yet. Progress is being made day after day. We will let you know as soon as we know. We are as anxious as you are to have Lightning Rod open.

Well we got our media day invite for next Thursday so doesn't sound like the delays are too long...

 

Robb,

There HAS to be a TPR-POV of this, complete with plenty of ' wee's' and ' oh crap's'.

I will be visiting the park in July and hopefully I'll be able to record that video then!
