Firechaser looks right at home! Even though it sounds awesome, I couldn't help but keep imagining it as a glorified kiddie coaster, and it's already looking plenty more substantial than that.

The nighttime holiday lights look beautiful.

I went to Dollywood this past Thursday Dec 19th. I was able to test out my new GoPro so it was quite fun.
Image
We started our morning off with the new Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster (It opened in August the worker said)
Image
Image
Image

The coaster is 5miles from Dollywood right off the the parkway. For a group of 4 it cost us $11.00 each. If your in the area I would for sure check it out.

yay Dollywood
Image
Solid coaster, if it wasn't for those GCI cushion seats it would be so painful.

The former HUSS Timber Tower attraction is now a patio area.

The park was open from 2pm-9pm. We parked in lot C

I really liked Adventure Mountain.

It's really close to the midway.

The nonexistant Wild Eagle line, I can appreciate the use of 2 trains however.

Best station design goes to...... Wild Eagle

I love how I could fit this entire banner in frame.

The "show" portion of Firechaser is up on the hill.

We shared 3 breads of crack among 4 of us.

Hopefully I can make one more trip to Dollywood on New Years day this year. I have been trying for one more Christmas trip and just haven't been able to work it into my schedule but it looks like they will be open on the 1st and I am off.. All week I was hoping and looking fwd to going Tomorrow night but the weather looks like it will be nasty!!

I will provide you with maximum pleasure.

Did Blazing Fury used to be open during the Christmas event back when it was braked by water?

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I cant speak for Blazing Fury, but the few times I went to the Christmas Celebration at SDC in MO, Fire in The Hole was open.

Thanks for the photos. I'm hoping to check out Fire Chaser next season. The new alpine coaster looks like fun, too.

Great trip report! I've really been wanting to get back to Pigeon Forge to ride the SMAC. Looks awesome. Thanks for sharing!
