Craig Fleming features the Gold Mine this time. I can well remember this new ride at the Pleasure Beach, even though I was only six when it opened in 1971.

It would have set you back twenty pennies to ride it back then!

Kevin, that video  captures all the sounds of the Gold Mine brilliantly, the songs, drills, snoring and even the explosion. I feel quite sad about losing the Gold Mine.

Agreed shimmer.

But at least Kevin's video has encapsulated it for us.
