Dollywood went ahead with the scheduled Lightning Rod media event today in spite of the coaster’s delayed opening announced last week. Dolly Parton made an appearance to welcome guests for the 2016 season, answer questions from select members of the media and perform a musical number.

The park also confirmed that the delay is due to safety and optimal performance concerns from Rocky Mountain Construction, the ride’s manufacturer, surrounding the world’s first launched wooden coaster.
