LoraX 2015 trip reports


Recommended Posts

I probably should have posted these throughout the season, but never got around to it. Not as many parks as last year, but a lot more visits.

First trip of the season was Dollywood - March 29

Woke up early and just decided I wanted to go ride coasters. I woke Princess Sparkles and asked her if she wanted to go to Dollywood. I have never seen a teenager get dressed as quickly as she did that morning. I will say one thing that has probably been one of the best things I have ever done is to learn to just be spontaneous at times with my children.

We had not been to Dollywood since 2010. That was too long between visits.

This park is simply a wonderful park all the way around. It's beautifully landscaped and the employees are fantastic.


Mystery Mine is one of my absolute favorite coasters. It's such a fun ride. It's my favorite coaster at Dollywood.


Wild Eagle was more impressive than I had expected it to be. The crew the day we were there were primarily more "seasoned" than crews at many parks and really seem to enjoy their jobs. It makes for a wonderful experience.

Few more Dollywood shots:



I love how they repurposed a former attraction with the new.


The Eagle Sanctuary is awesome. Love their demonstrations, too.




Ended the day meeting up with a friend from high school, his wife and son. It was great being able to sit down and catch up a bit.
