Runaway Mine Train

Six Flags Over Texas

One of several firsts for Six Flags Over Texas, this is the world's first "Mine Train" coaster and since its debut little has changed. Runaway Mine Train climbs three lift hills during its run along nearly half-a-mile of tubular steel track. Impressive by the ride standards of when it opened, now Runaway Mine Train is simply a family ride since thrill-seekers have moved on to taller and faster coasters.
