Wild Eagle at DollywoodSubmitted by Nick on Sunday, July 22, 2012 14:19
Wild Eagle was be the first Bolliger & Mabillard Wing Rider coaster to open in the US, in March 2012. Riders are suspended on either side of the track in a "winged" formation, hitting a top speed of 61 miles per hour as they soar through its 3,127-feet-long course.
Four inversions are included in Wild Eagle's circuit, including a giant loop, a "zero-G" roll and a giant flat spin. The ride hits its top speed at the foot of the first drop, which will stand at 135-feet-tall, and is designed to recreate the experience of soaring through the skies like a bald eagle.
