You guys see this yet?

Looks way cooler than the descriptions let on. If it's really themed like that, it could be a pretty fun little ride.

Dollywood tends to go all out on Theming. I'm way more excited. Looks way longer and better than I imagined. Can't wait till spring!

Well, the theming on the front half, is actually the remains of Adventure Mountain. So the fire Watch Towers are already in place. The big question for me is exactly what happens in the fireworks factory.

Agree with others that the ride is much longer than I anticipated. I must say, as someone who has spent the last two years taking younger kids to DW, it's exactly the type of ride they need. Something between the kiddie coaster and Thunderhead. Blazing fury is of course between those two, but trying to convince a child who's gathering courage for a big ride that "the coaster in the building which you can't see" isn't scary, is a hard sell. This will be a great fit for DW.

As CreditWh0re says, this is exactly what the park needs (incidentally, it's also what Holiday World needs IMHO). DW's four "Big Kid Coasters" are all so intense, there ends up being a big gap between when a kid gets bored of Blazing Fury and the Kiddie Coaster and when they can ride the biggies. I'm sure my kids will all want to power ride this thing next year. Way to go DW.

This looks like a ton of fun. I'm still trying to nail down what to do during April break this year---maybe it's time for a return visit to the smokies! I've always wanted to hit up DW's Festival of Nations, too, so this could be a good excuse.

For a "kiddie coaster" this looks like it could rival the big boys of the park. Besides Thunderhead, I wasn't really impressed with the rest of Dollywood's lineup.

This is a solid addition.

ugly girlfriends ... chicks



Have you ever wondered why there weren't more women coaster enthusiasts?

Yeah, me neither.

A kiddie coaster? Who said that? Was that in the press release? It sure as hell doesn't look like a kiddie coaster to me!

It's being billed as such. I think it has a low height requirement. I'm really excited for this. Looks way better than I imagined.

FireChaser looks like a nice "family coaster", not a kiddie coaster. Not to incite controversy, but "family" defined as multiple generations (ie. all ages, young and old). This, it seems FC will be enjoyable for the young, the old, and the inbetween. This definitely fill's a need at DW. And note; I've never seen a "kiddie coaster" with a backwards portion of the ride.

The animation was excellent, especially the highly detailed track and cars. I hope that additional theming will be added. The portion between the fire station and the fireworks/ gas station was lacking in theming (except for the existing towers). It would be pretty sweet to speed through a burning building. Faux fire of course.

Speaking of theming and fire, Blazing Fury was in sad shape last Christmas. Hopefully some TLC will be given soon.

Well, with comments like those above, it's somewhat surprising there are as many women as there are...our after-PPParty was almost 50-50... ;~)

lol...not that it matters, but my initial "ugly girlfriends" line was just meant as a friendly nod to Gonchar's line about "ugly and/or stupid kids" in the Flying Turns post. I'm glad I left out the "and/or stupid".
