Written by Robert Niles
This dual-launch family coaster travels forward then backward on a 2,427-foot track. The coaster will open in Spring 2014, and will be themed to firefighters protecting the forest of the Great Smoky Mountains.
Fire chaser is a great family coaster with decent effects and a couple good launches. 9/10 - David L.
I really enjoyed the ride and it fits what Dollywood very much needed. The theming and details won't blow away anyone when compared to Disney or universal, but for a regional park it is very well themed and fits the park perfectly. Both of the launches are smooth, as is the entire ride. It doesn't compete with the other coasters in terms of thrills but it is simply a very fun experience. My only real complaint is the wait which being the newest and shiniest thing in the park it has a massive one. If you can catch it with an average wait go for it and I'm sure you will have a blast. - Jordan Driver
