River King Mine Train has a unique history since it is one of a pair of side-by-side Mine Train coasters that were original rides at Six Flags St. Louis. The second track was sold to Dollywood in 1989 and has since been relocated to Magic Springs & Crystal Falls where it operates as Big Bad John.

Another interesting fact is that the River King Mine Ride was retrofitted to become the Railblazer stand-up roller coaster for one year. Stand-up trains rode the rails for the 1984 season. Unfortunately, after an accident, the park closed the stand-up version and placed the original seated trains back in service the next season.
