Dollywood's Lightning Rod closed following a nationwide recall by the manufacturer

Posted Monday, June 20, 2016 10:45 AM | Contributed by Jeff

After being hailed as the world's fastest wooden roller coaster at its grand opening just last week, Dollywood's "Lightning Rod" was brought to an abrupt stop this weekend. The Pigeon Forge amusement park posted a notice on their website Sunday stating that the new rollercoaster would be shut down temporarily due to a nation-wide mechanical recall.

I heard its only lightning rod as all the other rmcs were still open yesterday. I rode wicked cyclone over the weekend and it never closed.

I always thought there was something fake about her. Two things, actually.

I always assumed that Dolly's breasts are real.

On his show Johnny Carson once asked Dolly if "Those are real?" And she answered "Well, of course they're real. Aren't yours?"

Or something like that.

Her breasts as fake as the wigs are.

You must be young because dolly had those bad boys before implants were invented! Try looking up some old videos of her on the Hee-Haw show on youtube.

Isn't that just another way of saying she's....well-endowed.

Isn't it a rather curious coincidence the way Dolly always announces new attractions?

You know, through song. "She's going to tell, she's going to tell..."

Gator, it is a Monty Python & The Holy Grail reference, as was my reply.
