Make Room for Mr. Freeze
In 1997, Six Flags Over Texas added Mr. Freeze to the corner of the park close to where Mini Mine Train is situated (before Gotham City existed). Mini Mine Train was actually reprofiled in order for the Mr. Freeze design to situate into the spot. The next time you hop onto Mini Mine Train take notice at just how close you come to the Mr. Freeze ride structure.
Prior to Mini Mine Train’s existence, this area of Boomtown was occupied by an attraction called Sky Hook. This former attraction, which existed between 1963 and 1968, was a sky crane modified by Von Roll and stood 155 feet tall. Sky Hook featured two baskets on each side of the crane in which guests would travel into the sky for a overhead view of Six Flags Over Texas. After 1968, the attraction was sent to Six Flags Over Georgia where it operated until 1977. The park’s addition of Oil Derrick certainly played a factor in the decision to remove Sky Hook as well.
Mini Mine Train is reprofiled to make room for the Mr. Freeze roller coaster.
Mini Mine Train’s train is refurbished and painted silver.
