HOLD ONTO YOUR HATS!

Dolly is planning on blowing you away! ...

With her new rollercoaster, that is.

Dolly Parton, the patron saint of female country music entrepreneurs, has had a lot of incredible accomplishments in her career. She is a true icon in country music, films, and television. Before other artists such as Jay-Z were even walking, Dolly was building and nurturing her empire.

One of the most sought after amusement parks in the country is a little place called Dollywood, which is the brainchild of Parton herself. Dollywood is visited year round by over 1.3 MILLION people each year, and if Dolly has anything to say about it, those numbers are about to go up significantly with her newest parks thrill ride addition!

Dolly has recently announced the creation of the world’s fastest wooden rollercoaster.

That’s right, Dollywood is adding a wooden coaster named Lightning Rod, and it is going to be a doozy. Set to open in March of 2016, the $22 million dollar coaster will go from zero to 45 mph in seconds at more than 20 stories up...and that is just the start!

The ride then experiences a massive 165 foot drop and will hit top speeds of 73 mph. Thrill seekers beware: Dolly is coming for you!
