Dollywood Report 8/20/12Dollywood: Trip report! Trip report! Trip report!
From Karly TenneyWell we got to Dollywood around opening time. Not to crowded and not to hot. I went with my mom, dad and sister. We headed to Thunderhead and had a great ride. Next we headed to mystery mine but unfortunately it was closed with technical issues all day. :(

Off we headed to Wild Eagle it was a great ride but short. :)
I rode on Rockin Roadway and sky rider. We had a pretzel at one of the little stands and that was good. :p Next we went on the Dollywood express no soot got in my eyes, yay! Lastly, me and my sister got a caricature for our mom! I know it was a short day but we went from open to close. I liked Dollywood and everything inside! Wish I could've rode mystery mine though :( So I do recommend Dollywood to anyone!

From AJ HummelIt sounds like you only got to see less than half the place from what you described. Here are some things I would recommend you put on a must ride list next time you visit the park:

Also, be sure to try the Cinnamon Bread at the Grist Mill. Best dessert/snack food I've had at a theme park.
Despite missing some stuff, however, it does sound like you had a great time.
From Karly TenneyI actually went on Tennesse tornado and mystery mine was closed.

From Bradley KeithMan, that's TOO BAD Mystery Mine was closed. It's the thing I'd stay an extra few days for. Have I done this before at other parks? Maybe... :)
