Dollywood announces Timber Tower for 2006
Posted by: Webmaster | 10 July 2005 02:21

Dollywood next year will open the $6.5 million Timber Tower, designed by Huss Manufacturing, it will be the only ride of its kind in North America.

Construction of the 65-foot-tall Timber Tower is under way in the Thunderhead Gap area of the park. The 2.5-minute ride experience features dual rotation both from the tower and the ride vehicle.

Situated in the middle of a 5,100-square-foot pond, the Timber Tower's ride vehicle rotates nine times per minute as it makes its way to the top of the tower. Once there, the tower begins a side-to-side swinging motion, allowing the vehicle to topple multiple times in various directions at a 60-degree angle, appearing to splash riders into the water below.

    Looks pretty cool. I watched the video on Huss' website. Probably good enough of an excuse that I will finally get ride Thunderhead.

    I have rode it and it's great. It has a lot of surprises that you will not expect. Including dipping towards a bear cave, a saw blade, and many other features.
