This year, your favorite regional theme park is introducing a brand new addition to its already thrilling line-up. It’s true, Dollywood
in Pigeon Forge
is adding a ride to be launched (just as its riders will feel like they are) in late spring, and it will definitely amaze not only all who choose to ride it, but also every single person who even gets the chance to look at it. This $17.3 million coaster is called the Mystery Mine
, and they have been working on it for long enough to say that when it is finished you won’t want to miss it. It’s by no means a cheap project, but when you see it, you will understand why.
When describing this ride, it’s easier to list the number of straight-aways than it is to list the curves. The Dollywood park officials expressed how they have been working for the past several years to come up with something new that would really excite people and provide a new stimulating source of entertainment. Their solution was a ride that can have 56 people on the track at one time divided into 7 cars with 2 rows of 4 people. Each car will travel for two and a half minutes, and they will each explore six superstition themed mine scenes along the journey. But before the ride even begins, in an effort to alleviate any doubts in the quality, the designers added impeccable details to the waiting areas, including rusted flickering lanterns, dripping water, distressed wooden planks (that were made on site), and several other surprises.
It’s a ride unlike any the Pigeon Forge area has ever seen before, and it is going to open on Friday, April 13 th. Make sure to mark that date on your calendar so that you can be in town for this momentous occasion.
