 Review of Tennessee Tornado @ Dollywood
0 Rating Posted by: biosciking on 5/18/2008 4:12:00 AM
Tennessee Tornado turned out to be the surprise hit of my day at Dollywood. I know this one tends to get higher praise than other Arrow loopers, but I still wasnt expect it to be as good as it was. Though it isnt incredibly long, it delivers such an enjoyable ride while it does last that it really doesnt matter. Three main positives: 1) The drop. After the lift, the track makes a very short dip and slow turn around, so I wasnt sure what to expect from the first drop that followed. It totally took me by surprise that it was as tall, fast, and actually quite gut-wrenching as it was. Add to that the fact that it took place inside of a tunnel built into the hillside and youve got a totally unexpected thrill with that first drop. 2) The loops. Pull out of the drop immediately into a succession of three gigantor loops. The two vertical loops in particular were huge, both in height and diameter. Plus they had that very unusual wobbly back-and-forth layout that I guess was supposed to simulate being tossed about within a twister. Very cool. 3) The smoothness. Who would know that this is the same type of ride as Viper at SFMM or Great American Scream Machine at SFGAd? It was amazingly not rough for an Arrow coaster. All in all, Tennessee Tornado was great. Equally as good as Thunderhead and Mystery Mine.
