    Rainbow Caverns with the Lights On

    I don't think I have posted this image yet, and worthy I think of it's own post...



    This is one ride I wish I had been able to see in person.

    A few more photos for good measure, likely seen already, plus a few of Mineral Hall and attraction posters:

    Re: Rainbow Caverns with the Lights On

    What a cool idea for a thread. A lights-on look at this closed, long-ago attraction and it's train ride is a rare treat. It's almost surreal when one's memories are evoked from what seems like another lifetime. The Rainbow Caverns were fun to travel through.

    I agree. I went on this ride many times when it was open. It was always amazing and the music they played in there matched the sights as well. You just can't imagine how wonderful this ride was with all the black light dye in the pools and waterfalls that never mixed even thought it looked like they were right next to each other. It was a fun experience.

    Thanks for sharing more pictures of this ride many of us never got to experience. I'm a bit jealous of those who got to ride this.

    I would love to see a version of this come back! Something the entire family can do together, rather than have the grandparents sit with the small ones on a bench while everyone else rides Big Thunder.

    Is this the area across the pond with the cave? And does all that stuff still exist inside of there?!

    No, that area was part of the Mine Train, but this was indoors and none of this exists anymore. It was near the end of the ride, space currently used I believe for Big Thunder and the Thunder train storage area next to Rancho Zocalo.
