The first roller coaster built at Six Flags Magic Mountain for its opening season, 1971. Goldrusher is a Mine Train coaster with two lift hills and a layout that follows the natural hillside terrain of the park, passing beneath the larger Full Throttle and Superman Escape from Krypton roller coaster during the circuit. While far from being the tallest or fastest coaster at the park, Goldrusher is a well loved, classic Magic Mountain ride and particularly popular with new or younger thrill-seekers.
