This is the best of the junior coasters at the park. It has an excellent setting inside the mountain and is really comfortable for adults to ride as well. While it has a very basic layout of just two helices, the train navigates the course surprisingly fast. This might have been aided by the fact that the ride takes place in complete darkness, but regardless the ride is a nice little thrill. Plus the park gives two laps on the coaster and it seems like a real winner with families.

This is... Stupid. It has a great location, but they didn&#39.t do anything except add effects and a substandard helix. A good (70 foot?) drop and some scarier effects could have made it a 9 or so, but this is really kinda crappy the way they did it.

For a smaller coaster, this wasnt half bad, but it just wasnt worth the wait I had. The mountain that the ride travels through looks great and it really made the ride better. Well, the layout was similar to many kiddie coasters, consisting of two decent helixes that were made so much better from the interaction with the mountain. The park gave two laps as well, which was a definite plus. If it has no line definitely hop on, but there are bigger fish to fry otherwise.

Thunder Run looked great and worked well with the mountain, but the layout wasnt all that great. This powered coaster was pretty slow and the helixes were pretty dull. You do get two laps though.

In a park full ov average experiences this one rates as average. APPEARANCE-9 The mountain and surrounding area is cool, the ride looks nice. CAPACITY-3 Loads slow and the two laps makes the wait even longer. We had had good luck most the day so by now i didnt want to wait at all. RIDE QUALITY-4 I like powered coasters, but this was uninspired. FUN-3 If it wasnt raining the fun score would be lower. RERIDE-2 Still better than 3 of their coasters, but I really doubt it. OVERALL-21 AVG-4.2 I will go with the four but this is like finding a fancy wrapped Christmas present that turns out to be underwear.

This mine train gives a very slow and boring ride. The lines are always quite long. However, the ride has a long cycle, since you do 2 circuits of the course, so that redeems it a little.

This is a good first coaster for someone who hasnt been on one before. Thats what it was for me so I have to pay tribute. Giving two laps is a plus, as are the effects and designs inside the mountain. Long line sucks, but its a great family coaster. I give it a 7.

Thunder Run was very interesting to say the least. I have never seen a powered mine train such as this one, so that was kinda cool. The ride through the mountain was neat, but there were no effects working, so that takes off points. The themeing of the station was ok and the way they give you two laps was cool, but overall its just a nice kiddie coaster that I wish I didnt have to wait 30 minutes for. Sadly enough, this was probably my favorite coaster in the park.
