America’s First Wing Coaster is at Dollywood!

When I say Dollywood, what comes to mind? Dolly Parton? Concerts? Horse shows? What about deft defying roller coasters?

The Wild Eagle® is an incredible feat of engineering that puts your seats on either side of the track so there’s nothing but air above and below you! Sounds fun, right?
