P. 771: Onsite employee housing under construction at Dollywood

Recommended Posts

Is it just me, or does the layout for Wild Eagle look a bit, well, plain? Sure it's big, but otherwise, it could just be a Sitdown coaster. I have been keeping a good eye on SWARM (or as I like to call it, Swarm) and it looks interesting. Wild Eagle just looks a bit normal for my liking...

I'm not sure "plain" is a bad thing as its subjective. What i like about Wild Eagle vs. Swarm, X-flight and Raptor is that WE's layout is built for speed with lots of up and downs (my favorite thing!) and a few inversions, wheras the other three are more compact, with lots of speed-killing turns and a few inversions. I think WE will be more of an air-time monster than the others appear to be.


It's in the process of being built, as are two of the other three, it is too soon to form a real opinion about it.

^^It's definitely more generic than the other wingriders - it almost looks like a normal B&M, like you said. And I think that's why a lot of people were thinking that maybe it was designed originally for a sit-down like Wildfire, but was upgraded down the line when B&M started to plan the wingrider trains. Regardless, I think this layout could be the most generic thing in the world if it wanted to - the view from up there is what's turning this into a one-of-a-kind ride.

Here are the new photos of Wild Eagle's construction from Dollywood's Facebook Page!








Gotta love that view!



Construction is flying!




I wonder if any coaster enthusiasts will rent this cabin out in the future???



They are definitely aren't going to have to worry about winter delays because at this rate they will be done before Thanksgiving!

Hands down this coaster has the best setting of any coaster in the world! There, I said it!


The view from the lift looking out to the mountains, and just the fact of it being on top of a mountain just makes this coaster the ultimate "skyline enhancer". I REALLY want to ride this coaster.

Just noticed this on the Wild Eagle website:




I am also excited to share some very inside information with everyone. Those in the know tell me the installation of Wild Eagle’s track will be completed sometime next week! Yes, you read it here first! Can you believe it?


Holy crap! When did the lift hill first go up like three weeks ago??? Has a ride of this magnitude ever gone up this fast?
