Frankie's Mine Train Review

We're here at Great Escape. For you hard core credit whores, there's Frankies Mine Train. We squeeze into the cars, and the ride op pulls down the lap bar. We start to climb the lifthill. But before we know it, we are rolling down the tiny first drop. You can easily tell that this coaster is not made for adults to ride. We then rise up a little bit and go through a sort of downward helix. This thing has some laterals. However, this just makes the ride hurt as we get squeezed around. The humps are just uncomfortable, and luckily, it's now over. Yeah. This ride sucks. Even by kiddy coaster standards, it's a rough peice of sh*t. So yeah. It's not that great of a ride. Oh, and be warned. To ride Frankies Mine Train, you normally need to be accompined by a child. Now when we went, we rode it early in the morning and got lucky and didn't need to borrow a kid, but later in the day, you did. So if you go early in the morning, you might get lucky, but be prepared just in case.
