There's gold in them hills! Riders experience the sensation of riding in a runaway mine train, just like in the gold rush days, aboard the Cedar Creek Mine Ride. Located in Frontiertown, this classic ride was one of the first roller coasters ever to use steel tubular track. Riders travel over the 2,540 feet of track while experiencing the rush of trees and wooden structure whizzing by at astonishing speeds. More than 56 million riders have conquered this ageless coaster since it opened in 1969.
