As much as I'm looking forward to Rushing the Hollow (SkyRush) in May... these trains are still more beautiful- and in every way imaginable. The Eagle motif is perhaps the best decorated B&M train in years, and by far has raised the bar on train decorations.
SixFlags, pay attention: Coaster cars aren't for crappy ads. They are to bring forth the beauty in your ride- and make the ride that much better.
Hey guys! Just got back from an amazing media construction tour of Wild Eagle! As always, thanks a TON to Pete Owens and everyone at Dollywood for organizing a great tour for us all.
A couple of quick notes from the tour:
- As you will see in the photos, one of the trains is on site and almost fully constructed. The trains are going to be MASSIVE! I was very impressed by their sheer size and it was difficult to get a photo of the full train in one shot.
- Everything with ride construction is right on schedule. Construction will continue on the ride station and entrance plaza over the next month.
- Ride should begin testing in a few weeks!
- The eagle sculpture will be installed in late February, so expect another update then!
I took a TON of photos, so I am going to start the posting now...

After seeing the Raptor and The Swarm trains, this was not what I expected at Wild Eagle.
