Only thing is, it’s slower dispatches just because the 2nd train doesn’t even slightly enter the station until the 1st is for sure up on the launch, going, and not going to fail. Once it’s past that point they’ll then pull you forward and unload/load.

EDIT: I found a video someone IG filmed of another view of the land being cleared. You can see an access road on the far left.

The park has been saying for years a new themed area would be up on the train loop. This might be it's start

I see this being a better spot for a new coaster/area than the loop everyone is looking at (where the train does it whistle blow) just because I don’t think Dollywood wants that area really disturbed. It’s got perfect views, it holds a perfect story telling set for them to tell about how life on the farm was, and I think it’s a spot to not be touched. Now the spot where they are moving dirt was just a hidden spot that no one really paid attention to. It’s kinda before the fake bear encounter and those random moonshine stills. It’s in that area. So I think that leaves PLENTY room for expansion for anything really.

Hmmmm, wonder what that could be for? The river battle site or the clearing? Would they have to present something to the board even if it had already been cleared (RB site). Sorry if that’s obvious, I don’t really get presenting things to boards for approval. I did understand having to get LR approved because it did cross over into new property that Dollywood had to buy as well as made some noise to those camping rental properties over the ridge.

I Love Donkeys!

Heading to the park tomorrow. Am I able to pay for parking with a credit card? Just want to make sure or I'll stop by a ATM on the way up.

Thanks
