The ride first opened with the park in 1971. Originally known as River King Mine Train, it was renamed River King Run-Away Mine Train the following year.
In 1984, the attraction received modifications, including stand-up trains and would be renamed Rail Blazer. On July 7 of the same year, a 46-year-old Indianapolis woman was killed after falling 20 feet from the ride. Park officials claimed that the woman fainted and fell out of the car, but her husband, who had been beside her, said that she had not fainted but had simply been tossed from the ride when it whipped around a curve. There were also several issues with the track and trains. For the 1985 season, Six Flags recalled the stand-up trains and restored the original River King Mine Train name.
