The coaster, which will cost $22 million to to build, was announced earlier this week by Dolly Parton herself and will be the most expensive single investment into the park in it's history.

It's also going to set a record for being the first ever launched wooden roller coaster. Riders will glide along a 3,800-foot track that includes a 165-foot drop to get to its top speed of 73 mph and the thing looks damn insane. And while we've never really want to go to Dollywood before, we're definitely rethinking a visit in 2016.
