In 2017, Boulder Dash received a retracking by Martin & Vleminckx to help smooth out rough patches and replace rotting wood. This also removed the triple-up hill located near the end of the ride, replacing it with a double-up hill.
Boulder Dash is built on the side of a mountain and follows the natural terrain. It features an initial drop of 115 feet and a total elevation change of 140 feet.
During a morning test run on June 13, 2001, a 23-year-old park employee was killed after being struck by a train.
