One of the first attractions at Carowinds when the park opened in 1973. A family mine train which features two lift hills, two fun helixes, and a twist dive into a tunnel. If you have long legs, however, you may feel discomfort as the cars on each train are small.

I got slammed around a bit, but that doesn't really bother me that much on these small mine train coasters. Worth a ride, it's a classic. - Bradley Keith
