  1. You might not need it though. Looking at the event agenda, you're going to get ERT on the coasters, and VIP seating for the big show. During the day the lines for the rides will be minimal so it's up to you whether you'd want to spend the money for the Q-Bot. If you do decide to get one, make sure you get it early. Last year, they let us get to the QBot booth right after morning ERT, and before the park opened. They sell out quickly.

  2. Lines for the shows are pretty long. The ride lines weren't that long from what I remember last year. They actually have several different shows, including the Polar Express 4D. I'm sure mom will enjoy all the Christmas decorations. Also, be sure to take the train ride. It's a must do at Dollywood.

  3. Have fun Jackson. I went to that event last year. It's a lot of fun. Pack warm clothes though. That forecast for 62 can change before then. I wish I was going this year, but other things are preventing me from making it. Be sure to see the Christmas shows as well.

  4. I was going to hit TTD but the line was ugly and showing at an hour, so I hit the blue side of Power Tower, walk on.

    I'm not sure what you saw, but the line for TTD was never at an hour all weekend. For a good portion of the day on Sunday it was less than 30 minutes.

    Yep...by the way, on one of the two trains they were using, only five people could board during those early morning Top Thrill runs...the right side restraint in row three was taped down with orange tape...

    Two trains? They were running the normal 5 trains. And that was green train that had a bad restraint in row 3.

    It was a great closing weekend, although a little cold. Ended with the final public train on Dragster.

  5. Awesome TR and pics angrybeaver. Glad you had fun.

    Sunday was one of the best days I've had at CP. Being Passholder Appreciation day, we got the extra hour in the morning on Raptor, but the extra hour at night on Magnum was awesome! So much fun.

    Also, after a few rides during the first hour ERT on Raptor, we headed to Dragster (even though it wouldn't open til noon with the park), and waited outside the entrance, hoping for a rollback. The waiting paid off. We were in the first train and got our rollback!

    The rest of the day was perfect. Short lines, perfect weather, good friends.
