Mystery Mine Rollercoaster at Dollywood, Pigeon Forge, TN

Dollywood sold the first rides on Ebay with all funds going to Dolly Parton's Imagination Library that sends books out to children under five to encourage literacy.  Mystery Mine's trains are themed to the hilt as well as being pretty comfortable to ride in.

We didn't get a chance to ride it just then as the winners were busy taking a spin but we did get a little preview of what was to come.

After Mystery Mine's inaugural riders were done they cleared all of us out of the station so we could go down and watch Dolly officially open the ride and address the crowd of winners, media and VIP's.  I didn't get to see Dolly make her address as we were busy hanging out by the entrance of Mystery Mine's line so we wouldn't have to wait once they opened it up.
