Dollywood has released a stunning new animated video showing off the full ride experience for the FireChaser Express roller coaster, which will open in 2014.
The Gerstlauer-manufactured roller coaster will feature two launch sections – one forwards, and one backwards. Boasting a 2,427-foot circuit, it will stand at 79 feet tall and will hit a top speed of 34.5 miles per hour. The first launch section on the mine train-style coaster will see riders fired from 0 to 16 miles per hour in 1.1 seconds, while the second will take them up to 20 miles per hour in 2 seconds. There will be six “airtime” hills, two helices and a “trick track” section in a ride that is squarely aimed at families.
Here’s the video:
