River King Mine Train

For a short time in 1984, this ride had Stand-Up trains and was called Rail Blazer.  After a lady died on the ride (the story is her large size prevented the restraints from working properly), they returned to using conventional trains.

The ride is 32 feet tall, 2,500 feet long, and is one of the few coasters around with three chain lifts!

River King Mine Ride. There was a death on this ride in 1984 when it operated with stand-up trains.
