Other Information

  • The ride powers itself to 35 mph (56 km/h), exceeding this speed when going down long drops. Because of this, it is prone to crashing if a train enters the station too fast or, worse, a safety cut-out breakdown occurs and is fixed on a multi-train design with a long uphill section immediately after a fast section where one train gets stuck on the uphill section and the train after it is preparing to travel the uphill section at a high speeds.
  • This ride doesn't need a lift hill as the train is powered. The train will gradually gain speed on flat track, collect speed on drops and slow down on hills.
  • The Mine Ride is immune to brakes failure breakdowns.
  • The RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 rendition of the Mine Ride features adjustable running speeds for the trains.

In Real Life

  • The Mine Ride is primarily based on the Mack Rides powered coaster, using its mine train themed trains. The track also bears some resemblance to Schwarzkopf powered coasters.
