They say where there’s smoke, there’s fire. In the Smoky Mountains that’s more than just a saying. Fortunately, it seems like with every big blaze, there have always been a few brave souls willing to answer the call – heroes able to tame nature’s fury and preserve the Smokies for generations to come! Now comes your turn to celebrate that heroic spirit in a new coaster sure to test your mettle, and leave you screaming for more! It’s FireChaser Express – the nation's first dual-launch family coaster – blasting riders forward and backward!
Special Attraction Information: FireChaser Express is subject to closures during inclement weather conditions including lightning, snow, extreme cold, or hot temperatures and high winds. To ensure the safety of our guests, all passengers must be seated with the restraint locked in its lowest position. Due to the nature of the restraint system and seat configuration guests of a larger stature are encouraged to use the test seat prior to entering the queue line.
Enjoy the same breathtaking moments that daring stunt pilots of the 1920s might have experienced as they zoomed over the fields of nearby farms.
