More dark ride than coaster, Fire-in-the-Hole propel riders slowly past various scenes of stalwart firemen battling a blaze set by a group of vigilantes known as the Baldknobbers. A few surprise dips and splashdown serve to provide some minor, but welcome thrills.

The amount of water involved in the "splashdown" is completely controlled by the ride ops, and is minimized during colder weather.

Guests 36" to 42" tall may ride with an adult companion.

Fire-in-the-Hole is a dark ride that uses a coaster train to propel riders slowly past various scenes of a town in serious trouble. The experience is similar to a budget version of the Magic Kingdom's Pirates of the Caribbean. Overall the ride is quite fun and imminently repeatable. Keep in mind that this ride is not a fast moving indoor coaster, but a slow moving dark ride with a few thrills thrown in for good measure. Commendable.

A true classic and clearly loved by park visitors. I don't think I've yet to have a ride where somebody on our train didn't yell "Fire in the hole!"
