FireChaser Express at Dollywood has officially opened, making it the first of many new Coasters to open in 2014. FireChaser Express is a multi-launching family Coaster, themed to firefighters and heroes. It's a modern mine train, with a forwards and backwards launch. I am sure most of the people reading this are wondering how good this new family Coaster is and why it is getting so much hype. The answer is because Dollywood's new Coaster is flat out amazing.
From the first appearance of looking at FireChaser Express, you can tell it is one twisted Coaster, especially for a family Coaster. It looks stunning built on the side of the hill next to Wild Eagle and it's own little area. From first approaching the Coaster you can tell it is going to be great. FireChaser has that special 'Dollywood' feel to the Coaster, that makes it special and a one of a kind ride.
The Coaster starts with a quick launch to 16 mph out of the station into a few quick turns. The train then climbs up the lift hill and enters the main forward section of the Coaster, with many turns and hills. The Coaster then enters a building full of fireworks, with many special effects, including fire, smoke, and more. You get launched out backwards into a few more turns and hills before the end of the ride.
Many Coasters that are considered the best have impressive statistics and are extreme rides. While FireChaser Express is just a Family Coaster, it is one of the best ever built, if not the best. I have ridden over 300 Coasters and this is the only family Coaster that made me smile and laugh the whole ride. I am amazed how Dollywood made a Family Coaster that is insanely fun. I highly recommend everyone who is reading this to go to Dollywood and experience FireChaser Express.
