(Pigeon Forge, TN) Dolly Parton unveiled her newest thrill ride at Dollywood today.

Firechaser Express is the newest roller coaster and the country’s first dual-launch family coaster, which means it goes forward and backward.

Top speeds reach 35-miles per hour and there is a 12-story incline.

Just when you think the ride is over, you go backwards!

Coaster enthusiasts say Dollywood is quickly becoming a roller coaster fan destination, especially since Wild Eagle debuted.
