Elements

Mine Blower features a barrel roll over the station and it also features a 115° over -banked curve. The name was revealed to be Mine Blower over the radio on February 5, 2017. Due to the name, the ride is presumed to have a mining theme. On March 17, 2017, Fun Spot announced some new information on Mine Blower. The drop was announced as being at a 65° angle, the ride was heightened from 82 feet to 83 feet and lengthened from 2,256 feet to 2,290 feet. The ride was later opened on June 23.[1]

Trains[edit | edit source]

2 trains with 6 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in a single row for a total of 12 riders per train. A piece of concept art that Fun Spot released on February 6, 2017 revealed that the ride's trains would have a TNT theming feature on the front.
