River King Mine Trainhas a unique history since it is one of a pair of side-by-side Mine Train coasters that are original rides at Six Flags St. Louis. The second track was sold to Dollywood in 1989 and has since been relocated to Magic Springs in 2002. Another interesting fact about the River King Mine Train is the fact that operated as the Railblazer stand-up coaster for one year. Stand-up trains rode the rails for the 1984 season, before the park placed the orginal trains back in service.
