This is my first event that I have ever been to and the first day was amazing!! FireChaser Express was running with no problems that I could see today, and the ride ops were amazing at dispatching trains efficiently. Enjoy the photos and more to come tomorrow!
I arrived at Dollywood at 2:30 (the latest I have ever come) It was really hard to find a parking spot and the park was packed.
I haven't seen this show in about 7 years. It was every bit as good as I remember and they added some new birds I hadn't seen before.
This is Daredevil Falls line. I have never ever seen it in the back que house, it is always been one of the shortest lines in the park.
45 minutes for FireChaser Express (yes I waited in it)
One of the fire extinguishers from American Pickers.
All clear, you're outta here!!
I got really wet on this ride (not an acceptable amount of wetness)
BBQ and Bluegrass starts tomorrow with Vince Gill!!!!
I can't hide my excitement getting a badge.
River Rampage's line was in the back que which I had never seen before
All the kettle corn you could eat! This event is great!!!
My dinner consisted of a Sprite, Dippin Dots, and kettle corn.
We also got a free pin
There was ERT on thunderhead tonight

Day two was amazing, it started off with a walkback tour of Blazing Fury where Pete and the maintenance guy gave us a really good tour. Then we had ERT on FireChaser Express, which ran really well. We had prefered seating at the GAC show, which was really good (better than A Christmas Carol). Then we had a wonderful lunch and to top off the day we saw Vince Gill and the Timejumpers! Now onto the photos...
(sorry about the photo quality)
We arrived early in the morning to an empty park
They were already staring to cook corn and pork for the day.
We got breakfast before the Blazing fury tour (muffins and yogurt)
Pete Owens was there to give us a tour (it was funny he was wearing an Adventure Mountain shirt)
The maintenance guy was also out tour guide. The trains were painted red this season
New fireman at the start of the ride
New reference in the ride
The tavern scene, they updated the fire effects this year to LED lights that were supposed to be used for a water effect
New fire effects in the upper window
The gun fighter doesn't move any more, also they updated some of the characters in the ride so they were not as bulky
Frog Alley reference
Molly is seated now and the updated fire effects in the windows
DP...Do I know someone with the initials DP...
New horse in the stable
New water effect
There is some great themeing on this ride!!!
Showing the deteriorating cave of the ride
Those are some big ants
The burning bridge scene
The Maintenance shop
The Maintenance shop
New Laser effect instead of the water
Magnetic breaks. Apparently, if you lay a wrench on one, it takes two people to get it off.
ERT on FireChaser Express was amazing. I got to ride in each row of the train, I can say the front and the back give the best rides.
I was there as well! Only for day two though. Great little event. I was the tall guy with the SLR. I think at one point you were right next to me on the tour in the morning.
The night ERT on Wild Eagle was incredible. I didn't care for it much during the day, but huge difference. I just thought it was stupid we had to walk around each time when there was like four people on a train. Amazing night rides though. Only rode mystery mine once, it was pretty bad. I remember it being much better. Cool at night though.
I didn't care much for fire chaser. While a great family ride in an amazing location, two rides is all I ever need lol
I also won the wild eagle seat, brake piece and thunderhead chain dog at the auction after lunch! I was pretty excited with how cheap!
