Thunderhead Takes Top Woody spot after only two weeks of service!

Monday, April 12, 2004 6:32 PM
Read this ThrillRide! Review of Thunderhead.

Folks, this is simply the best woody built in the last twenty years at least. It will steal the #1 on the Wood list this year.

As the Review says,"Do WHATEVER you can to get to Dollywood and ride this amazing coaster!" *** Edited 4/12/2004 10:32:57 PM UTC by CoastermanX*** *** Edited 4/12/2004 10:37:32 PM UTC by CoastermanX*** *** Edited 4/12/2004 10:38:49 PM UTC by CoastermanX***

I would just say that it is ONE of the best woodies built....EVER! Most woodies built in the last 20 years can't even begin to hold a candle to this one.

LOL, as if Chris Godsey's opinion of the ride makes it the official #1 woodie. :)

I'm really excited to finally ride Thunderhead this weekend, but I'm avoiding 'anticipointment' by downplaying it in my mind. However, I do plan on getting a Dollywood pass and returning Sunday morning!

Joe - You're opinion only counts when I agree with it!

I am happy to see that a park finally contracted GCI to build a coaster with all the elements that a great ride needs to be number 1. GCI has been at the top on my list since The Wilcat, and I have liked all their coasters I have ridden. The Lightning Racers are my favorite. I have trip planned to Dollywood at the end if May to ride Thunderhead, and TT. I am looking forward to it. If the buzz is any indication it will probably end up being my new #1.

I'm looking forward to this weekend. I have no doubt I will love Thunderhead. I have talked with several seasoned woodie riders who have ridden just about every woodie in the US and Europe. They all rave about Thunderhead.

It's almost a holy experience :)

Im so glad Dollywood got, the coaster enthusiast, was getting lonely at DW. After this, I won't be anymore! yay!

What's disturbing is, this thing hasn't even really completely broken-in yet. What's it gonna be like by the end of the season when it has! Yikes!

I'll be only TOO happy to ride this myself this weekend.....but I'll have to wear headphones if there's going to be repeated choruses of "Rocky Top".

As for "top spot", the only poll I *trust* is the one that Mitch runs...but like Joe C. says, the only vote that really counts is *MINE*...:)

Yes, I do remember that from my lone trip to Pigeon Forge, all the way back in 1982....worse than "It's a Small World"...;)

Yeah I got a little sick of hearing Rocky Top. Luckily Thunderhead drowns out most any of that hee haw music you might hear around it. The trains sound nice, deep and rumbly.

^Right now isn't it the Russian version of Rocky Top for Festival of Nations? ;)

Can't wait to ride April 17th! (Unfortunatly not with the Acers though)

Tuesday, April 13, 2004 12:56 AM
Ha!!!!!!! I'll gladly sing it to any guest!


What's life if you can't ride Thunderhead?
Rocky Top Tennnnnnnneeeeeeeeeeeseeeeeeeeee!

Stop Children.

That's enough slander of Rocky Top.

CoastermanX is right!!!! One day, he will bring his banjo and will be my accompaniment while i sing Rocky Top Tennessee. If ya'all are lucky I might do my rendition to cater to the needs of Thunderhead....

Sit in the seat and put your seat belt on!
Thunderhead Tennessee

Be prepared for a fun ride!

HAHA DollywoodRideOp you're cracking me up! How will I ever get to sleep tonight with the Rocky Top chorus already playing over and over in my head??? Hmm...joins rollergator in humming It's a Small World.

It's a Disney Conspiracy, if ya'll think Rocky Top Tennessee is worse! Where is the love?


What do Thunderhead and It's a Small World - have in common?????

Absolutely Nothing!!!!!!!!!!!

It's a world of laughter
A world of tears
It's a world of hopes
And a world of fears
There's so much that we share
That it's time we're aware
It's a small world after all!

Dancing Dolls....that Song....

I'm so scared! It's all my fault, I decided to ride this ride, and now I don't know where I am, They're coming...AHH!

Coming Soon to Dollywood, Walt Disney World, and Disneyland: A NEW Simulator Experience: The Small World Project!-Two teens are subjected to the worst of all of Disney ride-It's A Small World, when they cant find the exit, the dolls come to life!
