I am going to assume that the assigned seating is temporary...

As has been stated, assigned seating for rides at Dollywood is not common,

 

Pretty sure EVERY train that leaves Mystery Mine is assigned seating. Maybe all Dollywood host don't know what they're talking about as proven again here.

Well, Mystery Mine has to be assigned for capacity and practicality, but that is the only major coaster that has constant assigned seating as of now.

He said it is not common. One coaster out of all the rides at Dollywood, does not prove him wrong. And please don't be rude; we welcome park staff to post on here.

Mystery Mine assigns a row, not a seat and Mountain Slidewinder has to assign seating to properly distribute weight in each boat. These have been the only rides to assign placement in the park before LRod. Barnstormer assigns you a side of a swing but not a seat.

 

THANKS

Weird. When I was there in August I got assigned a seat on Mystery Mine even though the train had empty seats upon dispatch.

That is strange. I've never been told to sit in a certain seat on any roller coaster at Dollywood.

Mystery Mine has always assigned a row since I moved out here. Other than that I've never been told where to sit, and of course Barnstormer has always assigned a tower but you got to choose your seat and which direction you faced.

Irvine Ondrey have posted some updates from Lightning Rod on their facebook page.

 

Interestingly, someone asked about the rumoured overspeed and Brian replied that there's never been an issue with the speed and that they don't know where those rumours have come from!

Wow, way to be completely rude to a park employee that took time out of his day to give us some insight. Unbelievable. Hopefully DRrobbins1993 understands that we're not all a bunch of d-bags and will come back often and join our discussions here. Jesus.

 

Eta... for what it's worth, I have NEVER been assigned a seat on Mystery Mine. More often than not I am assigned a row, but never a seat. Perhaps not all posters here know what they're talking about as proven again here.

I'm planning a trip to the park during the first week of August. I will be taking advantage of the free admission the next day when entering the park after 3:00 pm. How are the lines usually like at the park on a weekday during the first week of August? Should I budget for the TimeSaver Pass?

Thank you so much for linking this. There you have it... NO! Lightning Rod was NOT travelling 90mph, the launch was not "too strong". As an engineer, I thought that rumor sounded fishy, and people here have been repeating it like it's fact... you guys will trust anything posted with a "source". Most stuff on Screamscape is untrue to say the least.

I have gone the last two summers in the first week of August and didn't queue more than 10 minutes for a coaster either visit.

 

Don't know if we just struck lucky on our visits but think the fast pass they sell is fairly cheap anyway if it is busy.

weekday in august? itll be great, I can tell you that right now. and the timesaver is like 15 bucks (I think) so even if you feel compelled to get one, you can. but it doesn't let you skip lines, it waits for you. hope this helps

Excuse me? Being rude? Do you actually read all the post on here? If you go back a page or so, Rob is calling people who like floaties "pussies" but you call me rude?

 

And how do you know that I am not a park employee>?

Well if we are going to go this route, your post was still incorrect. LR does not assign "seats" either. They tell you what "row" to go to and you pick your own seat.

^ Thunderhead was by far the most pleasant surprise for me when I visited the park back in March. IMO one of the best GCIs I've been on, right up with Lightning Racer.

 

I rode backrow, and held on for dear life the whole time. It takes a lot for me to put my arms down. And the thing was a walkon!!!

Back row Thunderhead is an amazing ride! Love all of the airtime and turns!
