    Rumor has it it'll be a new resort. A new resort that Dollywood actually owns! :D
    The other rumor is a family launch coaster, which I'm guessing it's the hotel.

    I've heard lots of talk about a rumored resort but the clue today was "Double Launch".....I don't think that really has anything to do with a resort.....

    I'm thinking it's not a family launch.. but something like Full Throttle at SFMM. It's announced at 11 AM tomorrow! The park also said "Dolly will be there!" :lol: They're pretty creative.

    The resort is something in the works. last year they got 125 acres rezoned to be used to support the parks. So maybe 2015

    This Clue definitely points towards a coaster. While double shot tower would fit the double launch hint the reported investment amount would not.
    Why, they just added a thrill coaster and they are lacking a more exciting family coaster. Themeing can account for the extra 10-15 Million needed for the promised investment.

    I was happy when I saw this earlier. It's a bit slower then I expected but I really likely seeing the 39 in min height requirement.

    Ya I have seen another site stating that and asked were the numbers came from. non of the news reports I have seen mentioned a top speed. To pull an extra 14.5MPH it will need to drop an extra 20 ft or so. if the end of the shuttle is 20ft of so taller it's possible but seems off.
