FIRECHASER EXPRESS OPENS AT DOLLYWOOD

Firechaser Express, the country’s first dual launch family coaster and latest addition to Dollywood’s stellar ride lineup, opened on March 21 amid considerable fanfare.  Dolly Parton, dressed as a very sexy firefighter, was on hand to make a presentation and give a great rendition of Great Balls of Fire.  As to the coaster, dedicated to firefighters in the Smoky Mountains, it looks like a winner.  It features both forward and backward launches out of the station along with both visual and audial special effects.  Video courtesy of Coaster Force.
