Mini Mine Train

Make History in Your Own Backyard

Here’s a fun and friendly smaller-scale roller coaster for the littler dudes and dudettes in your crew. Are your junior miners ready to take on their first big kid ride? Mini Mine Train may be small, but it packs a big punch, delivering lots of oohs and aahs for the mild adventurists in your family.

Jump on the train for a light-hearted, breezy ride through the rambling trails of a frontier mining town. Your train will tackle swervy descents and swift turns, racing at moderate speeds through covered tunnels that’ll make them scream and giggle at the same time.

Your bright red mine car will chug through this whirlwind 810-foot track in about a minute. From a peak height of only 20 feet, your junior drop isn’t too steep, but is still exciting enough for a little tummy-tickle. Plus, the quick swoops, fast curves, and sudden switchbacks will be extra jaw-dropping for all the little up-and-coming thrill-seekers in your crew.

After the collapse of the Boomtown Mines, outsiders struggled to reopen them. They were successfully able to salvage some of the mine’s tracks, but all who helped mysteriously vanished. The Boomtown Terror Mine Train is all that’s left of the mines… along with some not-so-happy souls.

In 1787, the bloodbath known as “Boomtown Terror” changed the small mining community of Boomtown, Texas forever. The residents used to be friendly, welcoming folk, but when outsiders began to swarm the town to take its gold, they became violent. After they slaughtered all strangers, the residents realized that the Boomtown Mines had been severely damaged during the assault.

For months on end, the citizens of Boomtown worked tirelessly to try to save what was left of the mines. In the beginning, a couple of mine workers disappeared, but the townspeople credited it to the unstable mines. The mines were known to collapse over the past couple of years. Not long after, more and more of the workers began to disappear, and residents began to fear the mines.

One fateful day in October, a worker came screaming into the center of town, bloodied with what looked like claw marks all over his body. The mayor asked the man about what he saw, and in a terrified whisper the man replied “Them.” All work trying to salvage the mines ceased after that day.

Boomtown was soon abandoned as the mines were the town’s main source of commerce. Over 200 years have passed, and the mines have become a popular tourist attraction as of late. Guests who have traveled on the Boomtown Terror Mine Train are said to have seen the eerie souls of the outsiders murdered as they drop into the depths of the mines.
