    The Mini-Mine Train was built in 1969, making it tied with the Tower for the 9th oldest operating ride in the park. (Both have been out of operation for a season for remodeling.)

    Located next to the original "Runaway Mine Train", the Mini-Mine train was specifically designed to be a roller coaster for the younger crowd.  The lift hill is twenty (20) feet high.

    The train goes around a basically circular track and back to the que house.  On slow days, to make the ride a little longer, the trains are run twice for each ride.

    The track was rebuilt in 1997 to accommodate the New Mr. Freeze ride.
