Off course before entering Dollywood, we wanted to freshen up a bit.
Here is one of the many craftsmen that put on demonstrations in Dollywood
Now THIS is THE RIDE that I should have been a wuss about getting onto. We went on this first thing in the morning and there was no one else around. We had no idea what this ride was like or all about. We figured that it was some easy going roller coster ride in an Old Mine setting...after all....we were in Dollywood and they never would put in a really scary coaster in Dollywood. Boy were we wrong!!!! This is one of those types of coaster rides that somewhere during the ride, you end up on your back going straight up and then come straight down....and I mean straight down...there was some serious air time involved. It went straight up twice, with the second time going straight up even higher than the first time. This was definitely one of the scariest coasters either Veronica or I had ever gone on. We were both shaken up a bit upon returning to solid ground.
As soon as we got off of the dreaded Mystery Mine coaster, we had relieve ourselves and fast. Unfortunately the public bathrooms were occupied.
This fire pit was in an iron works exhibition in Dollywood
This is one of the rides in Dollywood and I thought that it would be cool to film while on the ride.
Below are excerpts of a show called Sha-Kon-O-Hey!—Land of Blue Smoke! Here is a link for more information.... Sha-Kon-O-Hey
