One of the last roller coasters to be manufactured by former Disney supplier Arrow Dynamics before its collapse into bankruptcy, the Tennessee Tornado is one of Dollywood's signature attractions.

The ride's circuit features a unique, 100-foot "spiro loop" element, which is the tallet inversion on any Arrow-built coaster. It also packs in a further two inversions and two intense overbanked turns.
