Cedar Point's Old Fashioned Roller Coaster, Cedar Creek Mine Ride

Cedar Creek Mine Ride
Mine for thrills.

Cedar Creek Mine Ride doesn’t just send riders soaring up hills, through tunnels and over water. No sir. It transports people back in time, all the way to the Wild West. Strap into this runaway mining cart straight out of the boomtowns of the 1800’s and make sure to hold onto your hat as we give new meaning to the term Gold Rush. When it opened in 1969, it was the centerpiece of Frontier Town. Riders start by going through the mine building before climbing up one of two hills that then sends the cart through turns and down the first drop over the lagoon. Before coming to an end the runaway cart goes through a double helix to bring the cart back to its humble home. Although it’s been recently joined by another hybrid coaster in Frontier Town, it remains a staple for families. You may not find the riches you seek here, but you just might find your new favorite coaster.
