Wild Eagle

America's first wing coaster, the first ride of its kind in the U.S., is perched 21 stories above Dollywood and takes riders on a unique experience that feels as if they are actually soaring high above the Smoky Mountains.

Instead of having the train on the track, Wild Eagle® seats riders on either side so there is nothing but air above and below the rider!

Special Attraction Information: Wild Eagle 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. Guests with casts above the elbow or hard casts on legs are not permitted to ride. Due to the nature of the restraint systems and seat configurations, certain attractions may not accommodate individuals approaching 270 pounds and/or 6 feet 4 inches in height. guests of larger stature are encouraged to use test seats prior to entering the queue line.

Maximum Height Restriction: 78 inches (6 feet, 6 inches)

During the Spring and Fall season, the social behavior of bees and wasp changes causing them to swarm our tall attractions.

Flying insects are a natural part of the Great Smoky Mountains in the Spring and Fall. During the warmest part of the day, there are bees and wasps flying around the top of this attraction. We encourage each guest to use discretion when deciding to ride.
