Dollywood Announces New Family Coaster For 2014

Dollywood's new attraction for 2014 will be FireChaser Express, set to open in March. Located where the Adventure Mountain ropes course once stood, it will be the nation's first dual-launch family coaster.

Traveling forward and backward on a winding 2,427-foot track, three 14-passenger trains will catapult riders from zero to 16 mph in 1.1 seconds going forward and then launch backward from zero to 20 mph in two seconds. The 39-inch minimum height requirement will allow many four-year-olds to ride.

The family-friendly FireChaser Express is meant to celebrate the volunteer-based fire departments of the 1940s who protected the neighboring Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
