This wooden coaster built by  Philadelphia Toboggan Coasters dates back to the opening of Canada’s Wonderland in 1981.  Consisting of five cars seating two across in rows of three, the train makes a left turn out of the station and ascends a 90-foot lift hill, making a dip before turning right and dropping 87 feet, reaching a maximum speed of 55.9 mph.  It then traverses a succession of small hills, turns right and drops.   After more small hills the train banks left and enters a tunnel.  Upon exiting the tunnel it makes a left turn and returns to the station.  The ride is just OK for negative-g forces but what a bumpy ride!  I found myself bouncing up and down to the point at which it felt uncomfortable.   Mighty Canadian Minebuster feels every bit as old as its 33 years. 2 ½ out of 5 stars.  For more information about rides at Canada’s Wonderland, visit
