Dollywood unveiled the lead coach for its new roller coaster, the FireChaser Express, on Tuesday at the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) Expo 2013.

FireChaser Express riders will race down the tracks aboard red fire trains themed after those used to battle fire emergencies in the Smoky Mountains decades ago.

The new roller coaster opens in March.

Dollywood first announced the new ride in August. It's part of a $300-million dollar investment over the next ten years which also includes a new resort and 2500 new jobs.
