History:When the River King Mine Train opened it was really two mine train roller coasters set side-by-side.  In 1984 stand-up trains were installed and the name was changed to the Rail Blazer.  This became one of the first standup roller coasters in the world.  Due to problems with the standup trains, they were removed after the 1984 season and the original trains were put back on the track returning it to it's original state as the River King Mine Train.
