RCMT

“Just climb aboard our little mine train for a trip you’ll never forget, through the wild and wooly Rainbow Desert.”

On July 2, 1956, the Rainbow Caverns Mine Train attraction opened in Disneyland’s Frontierland area. The attraction, originally a C Ticket ride, took guests on a train ride through a painted desert, complete with colored cavern pools and small waterfalls. It eventually closed on October 11, 1959, with the Mine Train Through nature’s Wonderland opening in its location on May 28, 1960; that attraction itself would close and eventually become part of the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.
