SEVIERVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Dollywood's $20 million Wild Eagle wing coaster's track installation is complete. All 3,127 feet of it.
Wild Eagle is the first of its kind in the U.S. The new coaster's floorless design positions riders on the "wings" of the coaster's track with nothing but air above and below the passenger.
The new coaster's four inversions include a giant loop, a "zero-G" roll, and a giant flat spin. Wild Eagle's nearly two-and-a half minute ride includes a plummeting 135 foot first drop.
Wild Eagle is the largest single capital investment in Dollywwod's 26-year history. It is set to open March 24, 2012.
