Welcome, cowpokes, to the original and most classic roller coaster in the original and most classic Six Flags park. You’ll journey back to the old west on a runaway mine car that just can’t slow down. In fact, this was the very first mine car style coaster, a well-loved concept inspired by American frontier history that was later copied all over the world.

On more than 2,400 feet of track, you’ll fly through an old mining town at 35 miles per hour,

A series of snaking S-turns will get the breeze in your hair. The authentic mining town setting only adds to the fun. You’ll zoom past old prospector tents, covered bridges, and through the dark rock crusher quarry.

And finally, your high speed mine car will pay a visit to the Ace Hotel and Saloon. Wave high to the old timey barkeeper, as the countless coaster fans have who passed through before you, from across the great history of the park. And now it’s time for the legendary final drop. You didn’t just take a tour through history, now you’re a part of that history.
