Some mysteries are never meant to be discovered. One theme park, however, has finally revealed more of its biggest mystery.
Dollywood has announced the details of their new attraction for the 2007 season, the Mystery Mine. Hence the name, this ride will be themed to an old mine. However, this is no traditional "mine train" ride.
This ride will be one of Gerstlauer’s Euro-Fighters, making it the first of its kind in America. But it will be more than that that will make this ride one of a kind. This ride will feature not one but two vertical lift hills — making for the first time this has been done on a Euro-Fighter.
This ride will have a maximum drop of 85 feet at a 95-degree angle of descent and a maximum speed of 46 mph. Along with special effects from Entech Creative, it will also feature a layout containing two inversions, a heartline roll and a rollover loop (dive loop), during its 2-minute and 30-second, 1,811-foot course.
Chances are, if this ride follows Dollywood's style, it will be a well themed, unique ride that will definitely provide a thrill. And judging by the ride's concept, unique will be a keyword next year at the park.
