Thrilling rides and high-speed adventures captivate guests

Client Herschend Family Entertainment

When our client, Herschend Family Entertainment, wanted to expand Dollywood theme park in Tennessee, FORREC’s 2004 master plan struck the right chord. What followed was a quick succession of projects and attractions for both Dollywood and Branson’s Silver Dollar City in Missouri. Dollywood’s Mystery Mine, a standout project for FORREC, was voted Theme Park Insider’s Best New Attraction in 2007.

This thrilling, distinctive dark-ride roller coaster sends riders on a high-speed runaway train through a 1900s mine shaft. Our most recent Dollywood attraction, FireChaser Express (2014), is North America’s first dual-launch family coaster that puts guests in the hot seat – literally. FORREC’s work with Herschend over the past 10 years has included several projects, giving us the opportunity to provide customized combinations of the services we offer.
