This is a good mine train ride and has nice theming. What absolutely ticked me off was the last lift hill. As we startted to go up it I thought Great! more ride to go, but it was so stupid. It ended there. Talk about one of the worst coaster endings Ive been on.

Probably the best mine train that I have encountered. The seats are "roomy" compared to some, and the course is faster than most it seems. What really makes this though is the theming. Not extensive, it is just enough to set it apart. What could have been a lack luster end with a lift hill into the station is made better by having it enclosed and looking like a dark and forbidding ancient temple. While it is never mentioned specifically, Indiana Jones was definately in mind when the theming was done to this ride... from the music in the station, to the several abandoned temples you go through, to the "remains" of an unlucky adventurer encountered at the exit of one of the "temples".

I really enjoyed this mine train. I especially like the theming and the men in the cave at the end of the ride. why is there a lift hill at the end of the ride? Its confusing like you are expecting more and then it stops. I hope they keep this one around for many more years.

This coaster is very different from other mine train coasters for the fact that this one is well taken care of and it has excellent theming and pacing. My only complaint is that it was a tad jerky but its an Arrow so you cant win when it was built by such a company. The seats were pretty comfortable for an Arrow and like I said, the ride itself was set in a beautiful setting and again, has excellent pacing. Overall, a pretty darn good ride but more than that it gets high marks in the mine coaster department.

One of the better family "mine train" coasters I have been on. Good theming and a fun, smooth ride.

Wasnt expecting much from this ride but was pleasantly surprised. I really enjoyed the pre-lift hill parts, the theming was pretty good, and the Rock Em Sock Em Statues near the end were awesome. Not a fan of lift hills in the middle of rides, but since this one was at the end it didnt ruin the ride for me. This ride was hilarious and fun, best mine ride Ive been on.

I had so much fun on this ride that I had a hard time believing it. I had no clue about the lay-out of this ride, or what other peoples opinions were, but I was very impressed. I didnt expect the pre-lift hill shenanigans, and I *really* didnt expect the Rock Em Sock Em statues on the second lift hill. They provided a massive laugh out loud moment and a new running gag. So yeah, this ride is hilarious and awesome.

The ending seemed like it was supposed to be a prank on the guests riding it, especially when going up the second lift hill and the voice says "YOU WILL PAY!", then turns into the station. So I guess the punishment is the end of the ride. Other than that it is a fun ride, very well themed.

A good mine ride that is a little rough. I like the ending up the lift hill with the talking punching guys, but putting that at the end makes its kind of anti-climatic.
