P. 771: Onsite employee housing under construction at Dollywood

Recommended Posts

So, does this mean Dollywood gets the "tallest roller coaster with inversions" moniker?

 

That would make me sad. I just made a 205-ft multi-looper in NoLimits. Now I have to live with -almost- having a record.

This seems like a fabulous addition for Dollywood, but they might want to change their marketing to not say "America's fits wind riding coaster" since SFGA is getting one in the same year.

What's a Wind Riding Coaster?

 

Im more interested in the 'fits wind riding' coaster

I love the new ride, and it will be an awesome addition to Dollywood! I think that it took some ideas from the Intimidator in Carowinds. It has the same flowing look as the Int. At Caro. has.....

Edit---- I wish I coulda seen the official announcement, though. Stupid rain..... grrr

Interesting, definitely looks like an amazing coaster, but if I'm a little let down that they're just using that hill to prop the coaster over the park, like they want it to stand out and tower over everything. It seems like this is a response to Carowind's Intimidator, and that Dollywood is quickly headed in the direction of being simply a "coaster park". I had hoped for a little more ingenuity and creativity in the design.

 

I would hardly say that Dollywood is just becoming a coaster park. In the time between the two coasters (Mystery Mine and Wild Eagle), They have added the S&S air-powered swings (actual model name is eluding me right now), the splah battle, And zipline course. Not to mention the fact that they also have TONS of things for everyone to do. I ofton recommend this park to people at work or to friends of mine. Now if they had two other coasters or so added in between Mystery Mine and Wild Eagle, I might begin to agree with you, but considering what the park had added and continues to have, I think that is a bit of a reach.
