The Goldrusher was the first roller coaster built at Six Flags Magic Mountain for its opening season, 1971. This Mine Train coaster has two lift hills and the layout follows the natural hillside terrain of the park, passing by the Log Jammer and Superman The Escape during the circuit. While far from being the tallest or fastest roller coaster at the park, Gold Rusher is a well loved, classic Magic Mountain ride.
