Explore the caverns of SKULL MOUNTAIN on a mine train coaster! There are evil creatures so beware! A good family ride. It features animatronics of monsters, strobe lights and almost complete darkness.
If there are "animatronics of monsters" on this ride, we missed them. 98% of our ride was total darkness. We saw no theming or effects during the actual ride, except for one quick strobe light. My teenage daughter said, "They should rename it 'Dull Mountain.'"
This was not fun. It was so short. 2/10
For a family roller coaster, this ride has some surprising ejector air on the first drop if your in the last seat. Sure, it's no space mountain, but it's a fun little ride, and the perfect start to any day at Great Adventure.
While all the reviews are true, I think if you have kids who are just getting into roller coasters and do not want to ride the big ones yet this is great. (Of course,they cannot be overly afraid of the dark.)
It's in the dark. You can't see anything. Which, well, sucks. It'd be scarier and way more fun if you could see just enough to have a vague notion of what was happening (a la Space Mountain). But no. It's just darkness. And not much else. A total waste of time unless you have little kids.
