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.
The ride tends to attract a lot of young kids who like to scream... loudly! I rode it just to say I rode it. It's your typical mine train ride.
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.
