Wild Eagle looks incredible! The idea of flying out on the edge a wing coaster in this wooded mountainous terrain is the reason Wild Eagle is very close to the top of my most anticipated 2012 roller coasters.

I live about 4 hours from the park and I’m hoping to make it over there for the opening.
The next milestone to look for will be the first shots of the ride’s entire eagle-themed trains. This postshows pieces of the train, but they haven’t revealed the whole train yet. And then, if we’re lucky, Dollywood will tease us with a test run video or two. In case you’re not familiar with this ride, here’s a virtual ride video:
