My last trip to Dollywood was back in 2006. I enjoyed GCI twister Thunderhead, terrain Arrow looper Tennesee Tornado, and the amphibious indoor coaster Blazing Fury. Since then, the park has added Gerstlauer looper Mystery Mine and America’s first wing coaster Wild Eagle. I’ll be returning to Dollywood tomorrow where I’ll be joining a taping of The Season Pass Podcast with host Doug Barnes, Arthur of the About Theme Parks Guide and Robb Alvey from Theme Park Review.
Dollywood’s a great-looking park and I’m looking forward to Wild Eagle. 81% of riders from my early reviews post rated it an 8 or above. It’s been described as: flawless, extremely re-rideable, gorgeous, with great leg choppers and an awesome setting. It’s a bigger coaster than America’s other new B&M wing coaster X-Flight. I’m curious to see if it’s a good bit more forceful or if wing coasters aren’t very forceful in general.
