Thanks again btw, I know I do, not sure if other servicemembers still get it, but I still always get goosebumps when people thank me for serving and stuff, so thanks again

For those disappointed with the perceived thrill level of the new coaster: You are not the target market. Dollywood is not Cedar Point.

Thanks for Serving our country!

sunburn, don't forget about sunburn, oh and sun poisoning. then there's that former congressman who's afraid guam might tip over and sink into the ocean.

Lots and lots to worry about :0

thanks for your service, enjoy your stay.

2014 going be a big year. Kentucky Kingdom, Banshee, Cedar Point, and Dollywood...im going be broke next year. :-)

Lol I'm getting hyped for stuff next year and I won't even be stateside I'll be over in the pacific by this time on a 20 mile island xD

That's better than a Three Mile Island! Not sure if it's as good as Thousand Island though...

-Gator, hoping no one has a meltdown about how I'm a dressing the topic.

I was actually thinking of taking a trip to Dollywood in November...possibly....I see they are open during November/December at times. I might wait if this announcement turns into something of my liking....

Well would you look at that. Right in the middle of my first day of school. At least I'll have something to look forward to that day.

Same. I know what I'll be doing during lunch...

I'm so glad I can use a cell phone (limitedly) at my school. How else could I get through my day when there's an amusement park announcement going on? ;)

My guess is a Mack Manta like coaster or perhaps the suspended powered coaster that they have yet to open one of. Since Dollywood likes to be unique I wouldn't be surprised if it was the latter. But the biggest part of the announcement should be the resort and look what I found.

Dollywood's DreamMore Resort... That's a name trademarked recently. Not sure if the link will work but here it is. http://tess2.uspto.gov/bin/showfield?f=doc&state=4805:gun4k.7.1

edit to add that going to

www.dreammoreresort.com takes you to an error on Dollywoods website. While going to

www.dreammore.com takes you to a blog.

Yes. I was there in June and the park was PACKED. Not to mention they have a pretty long season.

The resort will have its own Pool Complex, Restaurant, etc. Dollywood is located in a HUGE tourist area. This resort will get plenty of visitors, even if the park doesn't.

I'll be honest...that is a little dissapointing to me too. I think that they already have PLENTY of family rides in that park, with a children's area that rivals Kings Island in terms of rides.

Blazing Fury is already a coaster that children can ride, and from the looks of things...will be as much fun as this.

Oh well, I don't have to find my way there every year I guess.
