Dollywood and Vekoma this morning at the IAAPA Expo revealed the coaster train for their new family coaster, Big Bear Mountain.
The 3,990-foot terrain coaster will feature three launches and a top speed of 48 mph. The height requirement will be 39 inches, which should make Big Bear Mountain an attractive family coaster.
Styled to look like four-wheeled-drive SUVs that have seen a thing or two while out seeking bears (that dirt is painted on), the ride vehicles will have working headlights and tail lights.
"This ride is going to be a game changer for us at Dollywood for several reasons, including the fact it’s the largest coaster we’ve ever built and our first ride with on-board audio," Dollywood President Eugene Naughton said.
Dollywood and Vekoma also released a concept POV video for Big Bear Mountain.
