Crackaxle Canyon

Crackaxle canyon is a brilliantly themed mine area. Consisting of many original attractions of the park and two roller coasters, Crackaxle Canyon is one of the largest areas in the park featuring some of the best themed entertainment.

Roller Coasters

Road Runner Express


Themed perfectly to crackaxle canyon, Road Runner Express is a mine train gone wild that navigates 2,400 feet of steel track, and dives through the rattler.

Ride along the canyon wall with The Road Runner as you make sharp turns, quick dives, and close calls with Wyle E. Coyote while running away from him and his evil scheme to finally capture you and The Road Runner. The Road Runner Express may be small in Rattler’s shadow, but don’t let size fool you! This little mine train can pack a punch!
