It was EBAY auction time again as Dollywood auctioned off first rides on there new roller coaster Mystery Mine. The auction was for a charity that Dolly founded called the Imagination Library in which a new, age appropriate book was sent each month to every child under 5 in Sevier County. The auction raised $35,000 for the charity as each of the first 56 seats were auctioned for $625. Along with being the first official riders, which I was number 31, we got to meet Dolly Parton and get a signed photo taken while standing next to her or hugging her as I did. We received an invite for Media Day and opening of the new ride. The best part is the commemorative plaque given to us by the park. It has my onride photo, my Dolly photo a plaque designating me as 31st, all in a cool frame. It was an awesome day and always glad to give a little to charity. Below are some photos from the event, a link to more photo of the Mystery Mine, scans of the invite, special Tshirts and my framed photos.
