p. 734 - Lightning Rod closed for remainder of 2020 season

Recommended Posts

Spinning seats would be a surprise, it seems like a big leap in the current technology. I don't see B&M going 4D in the same year they went 300 feet. I think with the awesome potential visuals on WE it would be better to have standard trains. It would be cool to have a little of both as long as I don't have to build it or take care of it.

There was a time in my life when I would have cared what Lightning Rod was made of.  So refreshing to give precisely zero effs. I just want to go to Dollywood and not worry about it being open! 

Yeah, the difference to the rider between I-Box track and the current track is really minimal. The only major difference would be that the ride would actually be open when you wanted to ride it and wh

You mean like this. . . (pssst, all wooden coasters run on steel rails, well, with the exception of the flying turns)   Also, who would have thought the first RMC coaster to get the RM

They HAVE posted one last picture of the top of a loop! I would post it, but it wouldnt let me save it to my computer. I am really excited and can't wait until tomorrow's announcement! That is the only way to know the true plans, for Dollywood's New rollercoaster attraction!

Doesn't really look a loop to me, too lopsided, and only has one side of supports on the top (Usually there are supports in the middle, Hmmm, it looks like if it's an Immelmann or a diver, the part before/after the half loop is inverted for too long. Hmmmm...also to me it kind of looks like it doesn't flip over for a while...but then again this is just concept art. But look how similar the supports are. Probably just me though.

Primier really only makes LSM/LIM coasters.

 

Not so true.

 

Vonkaputous at Linnanmaki

 

Soak'd at Freestyle Music Park

 

Round About at Freestyle Music Park

 

Bandit at Movie Park Germany

 

Runaway Mountain at Six Flags over Texas.

 

While Premier is most commonly known for their launch coasters, they have done plenty of projects (coasters and otherwise) that have not involved powered launches.

^ That's either an inversion or a really steep bank. The connector on the support closer to us is flat, while the connector on the taller support behind it is at a 90 degree angle. My guess is that we're seeing the second half of a zero-g roll.

I'm really excited for this announcement, and even thourgh i live in Denmark this is really a big thing for me. I have set the alarm for 3:30 AM, so while the house is sleeping i'm gonna watch the live announcement of a very beautiful looking roller coaster.

I'm also looking forward to see the construction progress of this beauty, from this amazing amusement park!

 

Dollywood, you are awesome!
