This is my favorite mini coaster. The theming is great and its pretty fast for something so small. My favorite part of the ride is when it goes through the saloon at the top of its highest lift hill.

Classic coaster! When I was younger (and shorter) I used to bang my head going up the lift hills. It is fun, and I love the smell in the first tunnel!lol! My favorite part is the turn around (well used to go around) the tree at the beginning of the ride!

Mine Train is a good but not great ride. It has good themeing and landscaping and is a classic, but thats the only thing saving it from being a below average, boaring little coaster!

This was my first non kiddie coaster as well. I still remember it when I rode for the first time 18 years ago. It has alot of memories and it is a fun ride. Its not a modern super coaster but still its a great ride

Always a favorite whether your 9-90. This ride, being one of the first mine train roller coasters and the second steel coaster to the Matterhorn, has three lifts but ends with a great drop under Caddo Lake. The Mine Train as it is called now is somthing not to miss while at SFoT. Its just a shame that it is starting to get rougher.

Tame by todays standards but a CLASSIC. One of the first tubular steel coasters ever built. Very good themaing (for a Six Flags ride) and pretty long. A must-do at Six Flags Over Texas.

Growing up on this coaster, it holds a special place to me. The ride is very relaxing and enjoyable. I could ride this thing forever. Its just great!

This was one of my first roller coasters to ever ride. Even though Ive ridden (much) taller and (much) faster things since I still have a place this one! It jerks you around a lot and the tunnels make it better. I still feel like my arms will chop off at times. Ride this at night bc its a little scarier and also ride it in the back bc it goes faster and on the drop the bars arent very tight so you feel like you almost fall out. One part I hate is the whistle at the second lift, I guess its there for blocking reasons but couldnt they use a sound more bearable to the human ears?
