Dollywood Discussion Thread

P. 771: Onsite employee housing under construction at Dollywood

Recommended Posts

During BBQ & Bluegrass one of the cooks told me that people got offended by the roasting pig so they didn't have a grill any meat in the open like they used to do.

You have got to be kidding me.

 

Welcome to Murica' ... Where i̶d̶i̶o̶t̶s̶ ... I mean... someone always gets offended by everything, which ruins it for everyone else.

Seriously. Even as a Muslim (meaning I can't eat pork) I think that is BS. How is roasting a pig (something that has been done for centuries) offensive in the slightest?

 

Do they make other meats out in the open?

Just spent about three hours in the lazy river at splash country, headed over to Dollywood now as the crowds look very low today and check a few things out

 

So LR is still testing..

 

BBQ in market square isn't the good BBQ they have had in the past. Actually, they are making nothing fresh in the seasonal booth (where the stir fry was cooked and where BBQ is normally cooked) it has smoothies and salads.. Overall another food quality downhill issue for Dollywood

 

Other than that, it's been a great day so far

As to LR, I overheard the Dippin Dots lady say the 17th.

Wonder if this is true or just another cost cutting thing. With the other food changes, I'm not so sure I believe it. But that's just me lol

 

I will say the BBQ didn't taste fresh like it has in the past.. it tasted like Cade's Cove heat and serve BBQ lol

Lightning rod was testing two trains with a large group of people. Expect it to open by later today or tomorrow.

 

Is it in technical rehearsal or is it just staff?

Technically it's not been officially closed if you go by the sign out front and the statement on their site.. This has been posted on the site and out front of the park for a few weeks now.. they aren't calling it technical ride rehearsal though and haven't been.. but other than listing it for weeks as CD in the parks app, the park never officially closed the ride so they could open it to guest at anytime I'd imagine

 

With this being said, I doubt they will open it today with the app saying CD.. they very well could open it tomorrow though.

 

IMPORTANT NOTE: As Lightning Rod’s manufacturer, Rocky Mountain Construction, is working to improve the operational consistency of the ride and elevate its performance to Dollywood’s high standards, Lightning Rod’s running schedule will be irregular and subject to periodic closures.  We apologize for any disappointment and inconvenience. Please enjoy Dollywood’s newest thrill, Drop Line or one of our other family attractions

You are probably right about it opening tomorrow, the whole park is closed for weather currently anyways.

"Power Of The Pig" Indeed!

 

My recent piggie is courtesy of my roomie Bert, during our Cedar Point visit.

He won it with a bunch of tickets from his Wonder Woman arcade game!

And our lucky winners, are those who had June 16th in their Office Pool!

 

What if I had June 16, 2018 in my pool!??!

 

You get $5 still. Not a bad prize for being partly clairvoyant! (Besides, it'll likely break down again before then, so you could still be a winner!!!)
