About Superstition Zipline
When the ore vein beneath the mining town of Goldfield faulted, the once booming settlement dwindled. As the number of residents dropped, its fate seem sealed as a ghost town. However, as time marched on, and the historic structures endured, the ambience of the place became something of a tourist attraction. Locals saw an opportunity to transform the old town into a unique amusement park, paying tribute to the past with family-friendly fun, games, and rides such as The Dolly Steamboat and Gold Panning at Prospector's Palace.
Goldfield's skyline is markedly different today, thanks to the knowledge of renowned thrill-ride designer Stan Checketts. The expert—whose work can be found in Las Vegas casinos, Six Flags, and Disney parks—transformed the once empty air into an adrenaline-pumping ride: Superstition Zipline. Visitors safely strap into ski lift-like seats to ride two at a time. The ride propels people backwards, then sends them soaring above the old mining buildings.
