HistoryEdit

Following the success of Matterhorn Bobsleds at Disneyland which opened in 1959, the tubular steel track design pioneered by Arrow Dynamics was in high demand at other amusement parks around the world. Arrow developed a runaway mine train concept that would be used in many of its first roller coasters. Among them was the Cedar Creek Mine Ride at Cedar Point, which opened in 1969 as the centerpiece for the new Frontiertown section of the park. It is the second-oldest roller coaster at Cedar Point and has given over 62 million rides since its debut.

Ride experienceEdit

Cedar Creek Mine Ride is a multi-lift hill roller coaster that features short dips and turns throughout a lightly wooded area and over a lagoon. The ride starts by entering a mine building, which functions as the track transfer and housing for additional trains, and then up the first lift hill. At the top of the hill riders experience a very short drop followed by several turns taking place high off the ground until a larger drop over a lagoon. After passing over the lagoon, riders enter into a helix and then onto the second lift-hill. After the second lift, riders again experience a short dip along with some turns raised off the ground. The end of the ride features a double helix before entering the station.
