Today, at the IAAPA Expo, Dollywood unveiled a new way to preview their next roller coaster, Lightning Rod! On their YouTube channel, the park uploaded two new videos of the world’s first launched wooden roller coaster, which will debut in March 2016.
Here, I have the videos of the new attraction. The 2D POV located above is viewable anywhere, but the 3D POV below is not compatible in some browsers such as Safari and is compatible with virtual reality goggles for those who have them.
Lightning Rod is 30% complete with 70% of the footers installed for the attraction according to the park. The Rocky Mountain Construction (RMC) roller coaster will be one of the tallest and fastest wooden coasters the world upon opening. It will also feature a number of interesting elements including a quadruple down. It will definitely have the RMC touch.
