I am a thrill seeker. But it is still fun to go around and ride this ride. It is longer than other roller coasters. It allows you to joke around with your friends while you ride. This ride does something that I do not do on many other coasters. I laugh. I laugh because it is fun. When we all see the tunnel, everyonesays here we go. Im not saying that thrills are not fun, but they dont make me giggle and smile while I am riding. That is why this ride gets a 9.

lol I love mine train rides. They are kind of old yet new, and give you a sense of not knowing where you are going, This ride did that, the turns are excellent, and the little stretches after each lift are fun too. I recommend this ride.

Dahlonega Mine Train is only for the non-thrillseekers, beginners, and children. Ive ridden it once, just to say I had, now I never bother - I stick to the REAL coasters.

This mine train did not appeal to me as others such as Big Thunder, Carolina Goldrusher, or Adventure Express did for some reason.

One of the only true mine train coasters I have been on. The ride isnt fast , but thats true to the idea. I really like the fact that the ride ducks down into to a tunnel under the kiddie land. something most of this rides dont do.

DMT has fallen off a little bit, I am beginning to feel the roughness and non thrills of the ride. I love the theming and it is a true classic, one of the best mine trains in US.

The oldest coaster in the park, the Dahlonega Mine Train is an early generation steel roller coaster, built by Arrow about 30 years ago. The ride itself can be fun, and can be rough, so the rating can fluctuate greatly between people. The ride features a series of short hills, helices, and tight turns through a layout that twists around trees, and has an un-intentional water splash when it has a rendezvous with Splash Water Falls. The ride has three sections, separated by three lift hills. Leaving the station, your endeavor begins with a nice run through the maintenance shop. Up the first lift you go, no more than 30-40 feet, and you (fairly) slowly run the track through some turns and little hops. After hitting the second, and then third lift, you take a wide turn left (where you pass SWF), enter a house, and emerge as you dive into a tunnel at 30mph, coming back up and into the station as the ride ends. The ride itself can be really fun, but also rough. The ride in the front row seems to generally be smooth, but the farther back you go, the more you will get tossed around.

On good days, this is my favorite of three Arrow mine train’s, but on other days, it is second to Gold Rusher, but in order to rate it, I will average my scores for both, coming up with a 4 (5 when good, 2 when bad).
