The Bottom Line:

A little outdated, this ride is still a park favorite and one that's worth doing if you're in between events or other more adventurous rides.

“Fire in the hole” is the phrase for Blazing Fury, and it’s a very fitting one to say the least. Get your fire gear on and prepare to feel the heat of the flames as you jump back in time to an 1800s town that’s about to become nothing but a pile of dust as the flames engulf everything they come into contact with.

After you hop in your train car, pull down your lap bar, and prepare for the unknown. The Blazing Fury car will slowly creep into the darkness where things don’t seem so bad at first. However, as you make your way through the town, you’ll see the buildings, stores, houses, and even barns have all caught the contagious flame.

You’ll see the townspeople all around as they encounter the warring flames. People are jumping from houses, running out of their homes, and some are just freaking out as the flames are all around. Be prepared for the unexpected as you ride through the dark; fire makes structures weak which you’ll find out as you go through the ride. Will you be able to escape the flames yourself, or will you end up in the perilous situation that the rest of the town is in? There’s only one way to find out!
