Runaway Mine Train is an Arrow Dynamics roller coaster located at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, New Jersey, USA. It was the park's first steel coaster when it opened with the park in 1974.
Runaway Mine Train opened in July 1974, along with the park.
The overhaul of Runaway Mine Train in 1995 was the first project that Larry Chickola completed for Six Flags. He redesigned the ride's 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.
5 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 3 rows, except for the front car which has 2, for a total of 28 riders per train.
