Travel back to the days of the Georgia gold rush, when brave prospectors traveled deep into the mountains looking for those elusive golden nuggets. Did you know the very first gold rush in the U.S. happened right here in Georgia? In a town called Dahlonega, those early adventurers staked a claim for fortune and glory. Now you get to tag along for the ride.

You’ll dive into an old mining car for this crazy ride through the treacherous hills of the frontier. Launched in 1967, The Dahlonega Mine Train was one of the very first roller coasters at Six Flags Over Georgia, and this family favorite is as fun today as it was the day it opened.

From a peak height of 37 feet, you’ll dive into the hill-hugging curves of an amazing figure-8. Then a series of wind-blasting rises and dips will lift you out of your seat as you barrel through the countryside. You’ll fly high through the trees, and then plummet around a bend into a spiral on this classic Georgia course. Your runaway mine car cooks through the wilderness at 35 miles per hour, building into a giant horseshoe turn and tunnel dive.

Okay, you haven’t found any gold yet, so you better ride it again!
