Edit: Just saw that it was dormant from 2001-2003
Edit 2: Just saw that the park closed in 2001.
That now leads me to, why did the park install a coaster 1 year before closing, (I understand that they didn't know they would be closing in a year, but still, they had to have known that business wasn't going so well.)

I'd like to thank the academy , and my mom , and my fans,and.....oh forget it , I hate you all.
And, "Race World" was not really a park. It was just a Giant arcade with Go-Cart tracks. The place was doing badly because it was not out on the main strip in Pigeon Forge, so the owners added a coaster to make buisness pick up. That didn't work, so, eventually, like Thrillerman1 said, caused it to close.
Thunder Eagle was smooth, but it was also flat. The only thing to enjoy was the speed. No Air-Time at all.
Will not be missed now that Dollywood is installing there woodie, just a mile down the road.
