This mine train was better than road runner at fiesta but not as good as cedar creek at cedar point. the last drpo should be the first drop because the ride was painfully slow in parts. - Steven D

My first roller coaster. I have to ride it every time I am in the park or my day is not complete. Enjoy the ride through the greenery and see the sites provided to enhance the experience. - Carl Stovall

This mine train coaster provides simple thrills and decent amounts of fun for the whole family. There are a few real nice moments at the end of the circuit that lift this ride from fair to good. - James Rao

Unexpected finale pushes this coaster from being average to good. Mid-track miner's settlement scene was very appreciated. - Rocklin Terrell
