So it sounds like Dollywoods new coaster is customized a little. The new video calls it the "largest and fastest in it's family of rides". I don't really like that marketing for it but hey, we at least know it's bigger than all like it!

But I guess technically it might not be faster than it's other clones if it's just the largest and fastest model! But hey with the art showing two trains that means it's probably larger than others

Just got back from the park. If you can get down and ride LR since it’s re opened. It absolutely hauled today from start to finish and the launch packs a punch. I did get some air at the top as well. The pot hole was gone, and the quad down’s ejector is even more intense if that’s even possible.

I'm just hoping against hope that it manages to hold out until early December. The family and I are going to be taking off a week and are heading back down that way for an early Xmas vacation. Fingers crossed!

Tomorrow will mark the one week of LR being back open. As far as I can tell it’s had no downtime to speak of. Are we out of the woods yet?

Ewwww, nooo!!!

Like yes, I'm glad it's back up and workingish... But the new front of the trains looks like a massive downgrade.

Not that it will affect the ride at all... but still.
Bigger is not always better. (And anyone who has ridden Wonder Woman knows this is true!)

Honestly when I rode Monday night, I glanced and was like “Ok that’s the new front? Ok cool looks lighter.” Never paid any more attention. I think it’s because ever other time I’ve ridden it I’ve slowly watched everything be removed from the other. (Lights, Tires, Bumper). If you do ride in the front you get this track view that adds an extra edge which is cool too.

Yes it’s different, but trust me. In person, it’s not as bad as people are making it. I’d rather a working coaster that hauls and performs all the time with a smaller hood, rather than one that’s down and tears it’s decorative hood up.

Way Close to Knoebels!

I hope they will actually have a season pass holder day this year. There were a few discounts opening day, but it was nice having the day before.
