P. 771: Onsite employee housing under construction at Dollywood

Recommended Posts

Any chance you've got those videos in a format that doesn't hate life?

 

 

Yeah, the sideways format was a little annoying, but as mentioned above, any video of some solid testing is good stuff!

 

And I must say - Holy crap was that thing HAULING!! I can't even begin to fathom what a ride on this awesome coaster will feel like.....okay, maybe I can fathom it.....probably will feel something like this:

 

I have to say, Lightning Rod is gonna make one hell of a first RMC coaster (hopefully, provided it's open by our trip!) for me!!

From that clip of it coming out of the quad down (that is what we're calling it, right?) it looks phenomenal. Wish we could see how much it hauls through the whole back of the course.

 

I really, really, really, really, really want to go to Dollywood, why does it have to be in the middle of nowhere?

Quoted for truth.

 

The crazy thing is, even though I'm just in the next state over, it's almost exactly the same distance from me as it is from you.

From a major airport? Not sure how anyone could make a statement that Dollywood is in the middle of nowhere. It is in the smack dab middle of the one the bigger tourist traps and one of the top 2 (most years it is #1) visited national parks in the country.

Exactly, two very crowded towns. Plus it's right next to Knoxville which is 2.5 hours from Nashville. Don't see where that's coming from. The park it's self is in the hills but I'd rather have a park in the hills full of surprises rather than a parking lot park.

The park is INSANELY well done. We drove 8 hrs from STL to visit a couple weeks ago. The park is so well done,it literally hides a B&M wing rider. You can barely see if from the parking lot. The park is literally perfect. It's small,compact,packs a HUGE punch and has the best feel I've ever experienced. It also helped we went on a Sunday and Monday where we literally sat on Mystery Mine and got re-rides. And Wild Eagle was running empty trains. But still. Amazing place. Wish it wasn't 8 hours away or I'd go all the time. When RMC can build an insanely huge woodie and you can't see 3/4 of it,the park is winning.

They actually let you stay on Mystery Mine for rerides? Dollywood is usually so anal on their no double ride policy that they will run empty trains before allowing you to ride again lol without waiting

 

Of course you can always get off and get in line again

They have never let me. They always say you must get in line again even when the line was empty.. I have asked asked and asked. I always rip them on it when they send me surveys to fill out to ha-ha
