This was a pretty tame and dull ride, but sadly its the best aviator Ive been on. Like the other ones Ive been on, this one was pretty slow and had a long and slow moving line. This one however was better than the others Ive been on thanks to the movement that the rudders on this one provided, even though it was very small.

Im not quite sure why I keep giving these Aviator rides a chance. They look okay I guess, but they always leave me with the same feeling--the height is sort of cool, but theres just nothing much exciting about them. I will admit that this one was probably slightly better than the previous few Ive ridden. Definitely no snapping action, but at least I felt some movement when I shifted the rudders. Ordinarily I dont notice anything at all. But, being a low capacity cycle ride that looks visually appealing, the line is long and slow-moving. Maybe Ill have finally learned my lesson and stay away from the next one of these that I come across.

The ride Sky Rider of Dollywood is quite good and I have to say that it has one of the best views that any rollercoaster has. Being naturally afraid of heights I entered the ride very skeptical but when you feel that find in your face and actually open your eyes and see the view it really is something. I loved the little lever that turned the cars a little and gave you a new experiance. Truly a fun ride that does need a longer ride duration to get a better experiance.

The Sky Rider was supposed to be a modern-day spin on the classic "Eagles Flight" rides, where you use a rutter to steer you vehicle with and against the wind currents. This ride, however, has to fast for you to have any control over the cars wings. The bonus was that the ride was On a much higher and larger scale, but this did not make up for the Inability to "fly it yourself".

One of the better rides in County Fair expansion. It gives good speed but its too short in duration or ride cycle.

This is another good ride at Country Fair. I like the view. I do wish that idiots would stop throwing and especially SPITTING at the visitors below them!

This was the first aviator I have ridden, and quite frankly it was boring. The feeling of height was kinda neat, but the movements seemed slow, I couldnt control the rudder much (it would have been cool to try to snap them :tongue I did like the paint scheme though, and the ride stood out nice in the Contry Fair. A short ride, kinda slow operations works out to a very average flat ride and an average score.

Gives a great view of the Country Fair, but you dont have very much control over the swinging motion. (I understand this seems to be a problem on all Chance aviators) Like previously said, it also has a short ride cycle.

One of the better new rides in the Country Fair expansion. It gets some good speed when it fully extended up, but it doesnt last very long, which takes away from the number scale. If the line is very long, I would advise not to wait to ride this ride. Plus, if you are a male, the seats have a bump in the straddle of them, and the restraints on the ride press down real hard and make the ride really uncomfortable.
