The River King Mine Train opened in June 1971, and was two similar roller coasters placed side-by-side, this ride being one. In 1987, this coaster closed and was standing but not operating in 1988, before being relocated to Dollywood. It operated from 1989 to 1999 as the Thunder Express. It was then moved to Magic Springs & Crystal Falls, where it reopened in 2002 as the Big Bad John.
