P. 771: Onsite employee housing under construction at Dollywood

Recommended Posts

They might have sped up the launch.

 

My friend's brother who works for Dippin Dots Corporate said he heard in the quarterly conference call that it's hitting 151mph at the base of the drop now. Fastest in the world baby!

I can testify that Lightning Rod was up and running starting about 4pm est. I was the 3rd train out for the day with GP on board. I waited over 2 hours and it was well worth the wait. My butt didn't hit the seat often after the first false drop. It feels totally out of control in the best way possible. It never lost speed till the end going in to the break run. Not at any point did it feel jerky or ruff. Just awesome ejector time the wait today was Due to them changing out the wheels. What ever they did made that thing fly...... Every group that got off was cheering, even the one that had been waiting in line since 10:30an that morning. Once you ride it you will forget all about the delays. The night rides this summer will be off the chain . I hope things continue to improve as this is one big computer that has a lot to do each time a train dispatches. They are still tweaking things and will have it dialed in soon!

...It never lost speed till the "non-inverting half loop" at the end going in to the break run...:

 

Fixed that for you!

 

Glad you got to experience the coaster!! I'm jealous!! It looks amazing for sure! It sure was hauling today! If they keep the coaster running at that speed it might just become the new number one wooden coaster in the world!!

If anyone is looking for just a one day ticket to Dollywood or Splash Country you can go to Dollywood.com/mcdonalds and save $6 per ticket. You can also buy a large drink from area Mcdonalds and take the cup to the gate for the discount as well. Once inside you can upgrade your ticket to a season pass as well if you want to go that route.

I`m all for humor and the more (good) jokes, the better...but that "Illneveropen" stuff is the most annoying thing I ever experienced on this forum...

Hush hush, it's an original, unique joke that transcends forums and even time itself. It's a magnificent work of comedic genius. Oh wait...

Damn I left about 3:30. I was in the 10:30 line from 11-about 12 then they told us it might be another 2-3 hours. Had to hang with the family. Checked back about 3:30 and they said they dad no idea might still be a few hours. I wish I had known. I also wish your info like "changing the wheels" was the type of info the park would just come out and say. Would make it much less "shady" as some people are saying. Just let the people know something a little more that "a while" "tweKing things"

This and the boat thing from the Cedar Point thread (plus its spillover) has been some of the worst, most forced stuff I've seen on this forum. We've reached new highs of shitposting in 2016, that's for sure.

Glad the trend is dying down before this site becomes memeparkreview.

I don't know what the boat thing is, but if it's anything even half as bad as #Itllneveropen, I don't think I want to know.

People obsessively checked the Valravn construction cam. Once there was a single boat in the marina in like December. People lost their damn minds, for some reason.

Guys - There comes a point when a joke is funny, then not funny, then funny again...

 

But this has now gotten to the point where it hasn't been funny for a while and it's making this thread impossible to read. I realize this is just my opinion, but it's also my forum. I really would like to see this thread get back to actually discussing the park instead of becoming a parody of itself. If there is no news or anything to report, that's fine, let's wait until there is something to talk about.

 

You guys had your fun, but let's turn things around back to being on topic again.

 

Thank you.
