During the American Coaster Enthusiasts (ACE) Winter Warm Up 2016 event held at Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort on Saturday, January 30, 2016, Dollywood unveiled its new Lightning Rod trains. Sporting an updated restraint system and lots of Hot Rod theming, these trains looked amazing. While it is not yet known if the shin restraint is the same or similar to those found on other Rocky Mountain Construction (RMC) roller coasters, that topic remains to be forefront in the minds of many riders. Either way, this new, shiny train is almost ready to launch riders up and over the first hill when Dollywood opens up in mid-March!
