Runaway Mine Train is an Arrow Dynamics mine train roller coaster located at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, New Jersey. It was the park's first steel coaster, and was opened with the park in 1974.
History[edit | edit source]
Runaway Mine Train opened in 1974, along with the park.
Overhaul of the Runaway Mine Train in 1995 was the first project that Larry Chickola completed for Six Flags. He redesigned its motor, cars and computer operating system.
For the 2006 season, Runaway Mine Train's track was repainted with brighter colors and the trains were fitted with new individual lap bar restraints. However, problems with these restraints caused several lengthy periods of downtime throughout the season due to malfunctions in the trains' locking systems.
