What’s it like to Ride Dollywood’s Wild Eagle?
This is actually one of my 14 year old’s favorite coaster. You’ll be seated in eagle-themed trains, with your legs dangling in the air. Once you are securely strapped in, they double check every rider before they give the OK to go. The gates swing open and you take a turn to the hill. The ride on this wing coaster starts with a slow climb up to the top, which gives you a moment to take in the beautiful views, and freak out a little.
When you get to the top, you stop for a few seconds and then it’s straight into the action. You get a feeling of weightlessness as you race down the first hill and through a series of intense drops, loops, and turns. As you make your way through the twists and turns of the ride, you’ll definitely feel the adrenaline rush !.
The dips, drops, and twists will have your heart racing and leave you feeling like you’re really flying! ( or in my case, really dizzy ). I really love how smooth the coaster is. In terms of safety, The ride is regularly checked and maintained to ensure that you have the safest experience possible.
