Refreshed with new animatronics, show lighting and special effects in 2014, Bud Hurlbut's 1960 Calico Mine Ride remains one of the most influential dark rides in the theme park industry. Step into one of the ore carts for your trip down into the gold mine, where you'll see miners at work. But watch out! The miners are laying down dynamite and you'd better get out before it's too late.


I really liked this attraction. Its like Thunder Mountain without the roller coaster component. Good for everybody.
