I've never been too jazzed at the idea of going to Dollywood, Dolly Parton's theme park based on her childhood, because "growing up in the Ozarks" and "Country-Western Music" have just never resonated with me as compelling themes. But it looks like Dolly is starting to reach out to a wider audience. Coming in 2007, her new Mystery Mine attraction looks like it's going to be really cool. Like the Mummy ride at Universal Orlando, it appears to be a combination dark ride and roller coaster with state-of-the-art immersive effects to tell a story as you scream along the tracks. Way to go Dolly! Now, if I'm ever in the area, I want to go to your theme park.
