This relatively mild coaster takes you through an abandoned gold mine in the old west. Try the "goat trick," by keeping your eyes on the goat as you descend the second hill for as long as you can. How mild is this coaster? The front cars of the train will bottom out on the third hill before the middle of the train even crests. A 2014 refurbishment added an "explosive" new surprise to that hill, though.
Favorite ride in Disneyland Park and second best ride in all of DLR!
Great updates and new ending scene. This is the right way to keep old rides relevant.
Such a good classic rollercoaster. Its very simple, but this simplicity makes it so good. Its not scary with any crazy hills just enough too make your stomach drop (in a good way). In my opinion this ride is better at night, but during hot days I love it.
Recent refurbishment was awesome.
I really liked the recent refurbishment. It made the ride probably the best roller coaster at Disneyland, and easily the best themed one.
This is really cool! You'll be entertained by just waiting in line. Best part is when the TNT explodes(new feature from 2014) Superb attraction. Four and a half stars out of five.
This is a fun ride through and through. From the moment you step in line your taken to the Old West. The theme here really is a big plus. The ride itself is lengthy and offers plenty of fun for everyone. Like with other Disneyland attractions this ride gets a new vibe to it at night, so if you can try it at night time.
This is a good starter coaster that has really nice theming to go with it. (8/10)
Very well themed family coaster. Highly recommend riding at night during the fireworks.
