MINE TRAIN THROUGH NATURE’S WONDERLAND.

[DVD: Theme Parkology – 2013 – 46 mins]. “When Disneyland (Anaheim, California) opened in July of 1955 Frontierland was limited in its rides, with only a riverboat tour and a few wagon trail rides. The following year, in 1956, a new attraction debuted: the Mine Train Through Nature’s Wonderland. This thrilling ride travelled through the town of Rainbow Ridge, explored the arid terrain of a desert filled with humorous looking cactus, journeyed past nature’s wildlife, and chugged through colourful geysers and caverns. Sadly, this memorable Disneyland attraction closed in 1977 to make way for Big Thunder Mountain, but now you can mosey on down and explore the history of the Mine Train Through Nature’s Wonderland, which also features a fantastic interview with Disney legend, Bob Gurr.” ANDY SHINE SAYS: This programme made me realize what a thoroughly captivating and fun attraction the Mine Train Through Nature’s Wonderland was. I enjoyed watching this DVD very much. ANDY SHINE’S RATING: Good / Recommended.
