 Review of Calico Mine Ride @ Knotts Berry Farm
1 Rating Posted by: praxis on 9/23/2006 11:42:00 PM
Its not really a mine cart ride, more of a dark ride. Generally, its the kind of ride even little kids or grandma can go on, unless theyre afraid of the dark. The open-seating coal cars alone will probably make it fun for the younger set. It moves at ~1/2 mile per hour, so no motion problems whatsoever for the coaster-phobic. Some of the mine sets it moves through are impressive - one cavern is huge. But its kind of a blah experience. You cant really understand what the guide is saying most of the time, and when you can, its not much better. At the end, you supposedly must rush out to escape an impending implosion, yet you still travel at a crawl and the explosion fx are no great shakes. It would be better if it found a way to embrace the Inner Cheesiness. Youre not missing much if you skip it, but you likely wont hate yourself for riding it.
