Dollywood Discussion Thread

p. 766 - HeartSong resort announced!

Hopefully the girl is ok, but I have a hunch she may not have been following the ride's rules since the restraints do seem to allow you to move around a bit in the vehicle. Bummer for the Island since this ride had just opened and looked to be their only "thrill" ride.

I have a feeling your right. Kinda crazy that this didn’t make news till Monday when it happened Saturday.

For what it's worth, Lightning Road appears to be back up today if the app wait times are to be believed. Currently posting a 75 minute wait as of around 2:00 PM. Keeping my fingers crossed it will be up and running when I get there in mid-August. I'll be there on a Monday as well. We shall see.

 

Woohoo! It said TC earlier so that's great that it's back up. Can you buy the unlimited time saver passes online? I'm admittedly not the best at navigating websites sometimes but I don't see the option to. I can purchase season passes or multi-day tickets but that's it.

Yes but you pick up when you get there... Not sure if you can buy them without a ticket or not.. last time I saw the online option to buy, it was an add-on item after tickets had been added to the cart

You can buy them online without a ticket but you have to pick a specific day. My son and dad went in early June. My Dad bought the tickets at the Park Vista in Gatlinburg upon arrival because he stays there frequently and had a discount. I purchased the unlimited time saver here in St Louis online before they left. Print out bar code voucher and redeem at park.

Well that's a long wait. With one train running, would that queue possibly be extending out of the ride building?

 

 

It might feel the que, but I have a feeling due to the fast pass getting seats on each train that it’s really slow in the standby line with one train running. Park can’t be that crowded with the other waits being low.

When I was there and the wait was 85mins, it wasn't a long wait because of dispatches themselves they were doing great with those and they have to time theirselves if you watch. Anyway the cause of the hold up was the fast passes which was actually pissing a lot of people off. They would take like 2-3 rounds of fast pass before the actual line. Like use the fast pass riders, especially single riders as seat fillers.

How many time savers are there on a given day? Especially since it's supposedly single use for Lightning Rod.

 

 

When you buy them on line (I was just looking because someone sent me a pm to get the link) there is no limit listed for the regular timesaver but the unlimited which gets you unlimited rides on LR as well does have a daily purchase limit, when I purchased 2 it listed over 200 still available for that day. Don't know how many had purchased before me. You have to pick a specific day on the unlimited timesaver but not on the regular timesaver. So, I would guess on the regular they will sell as many as they can which is why they limit LR to one ride on those and why they will only sell a finite number of the unlimited. Make sense?

 

Based on other theme parks I have been too and their fastpasses; DW's are pretty cheap at $35 & $45. And if LR is open, to me, the extra 10 bucks is a no brainer to get unlimited rides on it.

Thanks! If Lightning Rod is open I am definitely getting the Unlimited Time Saver for Saturday.

 

Something to keep in mind about the Unlimited Time Saver:

 

Drop Line - Summer 2017 (limit one ride per person)

Lightning Rod ® (limit one ride per person)

 

Unless I'm reading this wrong, even if you do buy the Unlimited Time Saver pass you still only get to "skip the line" once for Lightning Rod.

Nope. My son just used them in June, it's unlimited. The regular timesaver pass has a punch card for the ride ops to punch off your rides on the stuff that is one time use only. The unlimited simply says unlimited, there's no way to keep track, because it's unlimited.

I would buy in advance. They do sell out on the unlimited. I would take the chance for an extra 10, especially on a Saturday. Also if it is this Saturday temps will be very hot. Heat index around 105. If you have a good pass it’s only 40.

Sorry if I'm oblivious but where on the website can I buy a Timesaver in advance?

 

Edit- Nevermind I found it on the add-ons page. I was looking by the tickets.

and with that heat I have a strong feeling Lightning Rod is not going to take well to that. It does well in the winter or colder months and not as well in the hotter months. That's what I've noticed.
Lol you can never count on LR.
