Thats Right!
Dollywood opens on April 1st,
I'm going to be there for the openning. I need the credit for class, and this os one way to get it.

Any others are welcome to tag along.

I have 5 total so far, maybe its 4.
But I cannot provide a ride for you.

Timber-r-r Tower opens this year in the new Lumberjack themed area.

Yes I believe you are right. At any rate, it is the only one in the US and it looks like a lot of fun!

I believe that one of the Huss Towers is going to Canada, maybe Marineland. Personally I'd love to see one of them where the pole stops vertically after toppling from side to side and then suddenly drop to the ground. That'd be a heck of an ending.

Have Fun

Depends or not, I did not think you rode spinning rides.

Only on very rare occasions does Paul ride the spinning rides - usually just to say he did it once, and then never again. Some of them don't seem to bother him too much, like Hallowswings. My job when he does ride is to make sure the rest of the family, or whoever we happen to be travelling with, is out of vomit range - just in case. ;-)

I can take Scramblers, Tilt-A-Whirls, Flyers, Swings, Power Surge's and a few others but I can't go again and again on them or I'll feel queasy. Besides I'd rather skip a ride than feel like crap and spew all over a park.
