With store fronts from the wild west, an abandoned mine and a shooting gallery, Mexicana is home to a dangerous mix of rattlesnakes, bandits and even a giant scorpion.
After an explosion destroyed the former gold mine leading the town to be overrun by scorpions, what was formerly the Runaway Mine Train became Scorpion Express, a fun powered family coaster. Guarded by a giant mechanical scorpion, riders make their way into the old mine passing by the many scorpions that have infested the area, towards the station platform. With the site still being unstable, frequent explosions and balls of flames rise from the remaining machinery, whilst the giant scorpion will spray guests with water. Aboard the train, guests take at least two circuits on the figure-of-eight layout, passing by machinery, rocks, and the giant mechanical scorpion.
