Better than average mine train. Nice little drop in a dark mine shaft and went quick enough to remain interesting. Felt like a long ride (in a good way) as well. We were able to ride it several times in a row. (7/10) - Lexi R

This really is a good mine train comparing it to the mine trains at other six flags parks. (especially the one in georgia) Great thrilling drop into the tunnel! - Joey Till

A nice starter coaster that's basically equivalent to the Mine Train at SFOG. A tad bit rough, but the kids won't have a problem at all with it. - Tim Hillman

My first coaster. I thought for my first I'd go 'slow' & build up. It's really an enjoyable mine train. I think it's probably my fave out of all the ones I've ridden so far. It's a great starter coaster for kids as well as adults. It really is a great family coaster. Provides mild thrills for young & old. - Adrienne McDonald

The oldest coaster in the park is an Arrow runaway mine train. It provides simple thrills, and decent amounts of fun for the whole family. - James Rao
