Dollywood Opens Wild Eagle Roller Coaster in 2012
View the largest flying eagle steel sculpture in America and ride the Wild Eagle roller coaster at Dollywood in the spring of 2012.
The three-dimensional sculpture has a horizontal wing span of a four-story building and weighs more than two tons. Made primarily of stainless and mild steel, it has thousands of intricate created feathers which have been welded onto it.
Canadian metal sculptor Kevin Stone worked for six months creating the sculpture in Metal Animation Studio in Chilliwack, British Columbia. Once ready for installation at Dollywood, the $250,000 sculpture will travel five days in a semi to its new home.
The eagle's head hovers more than two stories above the entrance to Dollywood's Wild Eagle coaster in the park's Wilderness Pass area. The eagle sculpture is symbolically posed with outstretched talons, ready to swoop down, and its keen eyes focused precisely on its prey. From tip to tip, its wingspan measures 48 feet.
It was built to accompany the historic opening of Wild Eagle, the country's first steel wing coaster.
Dollywood's Wild Eagle coaster opens March 24 to launch the park's 27th operating season.
