p. 766 - HeartSong resort announced!

Recommended Posts

Why not show some love for the new kiddie coaster? Since I have a 7 and 8 year old I was happy to get them a ride on Whistle Punk Chaser. Quick photo report below:

 

Wow, they really did a nice job theming Whistle Punk Chaser. Nice pictures!

 

 

Yes Ernie these are great. Few things will endear me to a park faster than when they take what could easily just be an 'off the shelf' children's ride and instead put some thought and effort into it to make it special.

Got 3 rides on lightning rod already with the timesaver unlimited pass. 2 of the rides were in a little bit of rain, got to sit front/middle and back row. Just an awesome ride, it's down at this moment but I'm thrilled I was able to get a couple rides in already.

 

Also I saw people riding the ferris wheel from the lightning rod station.

As expected, no new rides announced...no removal of rides announced. Dolly mostly shared details of the new fall festival & her new children's album. Looks like I can still trust my sources...haha

There was no announcement about ride removals or ride additions. Dolly talked about her Christmas event as well as the Great Pumpkin Luminights. The very cool thing is they mentioned some sort of pumpkin maze with the new festival.

 

I will upload the video later.

... okay

 

I would have loved to have been there just to see Dolly.

 

Agreed.

 

PS: The new Pumpkin thing sounds cool. They have something similar about an hour from our house and it's definitely quite the spectacle. There are a few other events like this around the country, generally the majority of pumpkins aren't real (since that would be completely impractical) and I think the same company churns a lot of them out with the exact same set pieces but even when you know all that it's still really cool to see.

Great pics ernierocker of your kids getting on Whistlepunk Chaser. I don't have kids but it's great to see another coaster for kids to ride!

 

Mystery Mine randomly went down one of the days I was there in June. That ride seemed to have the most downtime after Lightning Rod.

 

This was definitely the case a couple weeks ago. I checked the app constantly throughout the days we were there and both LR and MM were constantly trading the TC status.

 

You guys are all going to kill me but we didn't get on DDF. In fact, I didn't even see it. What is it near, specifically?

Mystery mine has been down most of the day, only got 90 mins left and I'm hoping it opens up again but I can't complain too much after getting as many rides on lightning rod as I did.

 

Mystery Mine was down for about 95% of the time we were in the park a few weeks back. Which is sad because it's such a great coaster. . . Thankfully it reopened about a hour before the park closed, so we still had a chance to get in several rides!

It's hidden by itself in craftmans valley. Up in a back corner.

It never re-opened today but I'm still happy we got on lightning rod and everything else in the park we wanted to do. We did the timesaver unlimited pass simply because this was our only day here and the park was only open to 7. It really was worth the money cause we would have never gotten on lightning rod 4 times plus all the other rides.

 

I really enjoyed the park but not sure it would be a park I'd make it out to every year. It was definitely too humid for me. The Halloween / Christmas events seem like they would be great but don't know if I'd go just for them if a lot of rides aren't open as well.

Last year the ride announcement didn’t come till October 28th. So still time, to announce something to get season passes kicked off for next year. The Facebook post must have been by an employee not in the know. Lol
Or an employee that was WAY to early to the punch which is also possible.. I really can't imagine Dollywood not announcing anything for next season.. I mean, I know things can change but why take a break from their 10 year plan? I can't recall the original announcement about their 10 year plan but I do recall them saying we would see things constantly being added to one of the three properties (Dreammore, Dollywood, or Splash).

Me and my wife visited Dollywood and other Pigeon forge/Gatlinburg attractions for the first time. Dollywood was a very nice park. I went in expecting a thrill park but it was not. It was a beautiful and well rounded theme park though. Lightning Rod was actually open. Only ran one train and had the only wait of the day. I went in expecting to much from the ride. It was great fun but I got off a little disappointed. It is my 2nd favorite RMC of the three I have ridden. Tenn Tornado was fun but a little short. Walk on empty trains. Fire chaser chaser express was fun but the fire was to hot. Wild Eagle was also a walk on with empty trains. I have now ridden all 4 of the north American Wing riders. I put 3/4 with Gatekeeper being last and Thunderbird being 2nd and Xflight being first. It was as meh as the others. Thunderhead was a solid ride. I walked right on the back seat with a bunch of empty seats ahead of me. Sadly Mystery Mine was closed. That cin bread should be a sin. Damn that was good. We also went to the Island and rode the Wonder Wheel and did the Alpine Coaster which was okay. Dollywood was a great park even though it wasn't a thrill park. We only did one day but could of easily done 3
