Interesting theeming and layout... but a bit slow and the trains were very cramped.

Goldrusher is a cool little ride. If you are looking for extreme thrills this is defininatley not the ride for you Adventure Express at Kings Island is similar and a little more intense. But I still give ma-jor props for being an original coaster and still providing nice rides.

I have to give this ride a "10" because after riding other mine train coasters I realize that not any other comes with such a cool duel tunnel layout. The wooden beams in the first tunnel create a great illusion of speed. Also, there are not any that I have ridden that have two "tunnels" such as this one. It gives a great ride!

I liked this, I felt it was probably the second best runaway train I ever went on (The first being Thunder Mountain). The tunnels were cool and it was faster than a lot of other trains I went on at other parks.

I love this ride. I know its very slow. But the scenery is cool and the tunnels are exiting. The ride just has a nice feeling to it.

A very relaxing ride with the best scenery in the park. It features a good tunnel for the finale. I took several rides on this because of the low line and easy-going atmosphere.

The ride is ok for a mine train but it has two lifthills. That isnt usually a problem except that the second lift comes too fast. A fun ride for young kids.

Classic runaway mine train coaster. Great for the kids. It has two lift hills and a fast ending with a tunnel. A fun family coaster with seat belts and lap bars.

Its an alright mine train, good scenery as you go up the 1st lift hill and also throughout the ride. At points its actually fun because it goes underground and through tunnels etc. And theres that 1 second of airtime on it, too! A good laid- back ride, great for the family.

Its a pretty good coaster with 2 lift hills. The 2nd one is fastest, and it has some airtime (suprisingly!) I thought the underground tunnel was cool too. Me and my friend went on it 6 times.
