Themed to a runaway mine train, this was Magic Mountain's first coaster. It is a great ride for people who are afraid of the big rides, because this proves that big things come in small packages. If you sit in the back, A LOT of airtime in some portions of the ride, and you go really fast. The front offers a much calmer experience.

I don't get why everyone hates this ride. It's pretty good for the parks first coaster. I liked it. The best part is the helix of death!
Three out of Five stars.
