Philatron is proud to be part of the 2014 renovation of the iconic Calico Mine Ride. Philatron’s electric coiled cables and straight bulk cables will be used to connect power, audio, and controls signals from the locomotive to the ore cars of the Calico Mine Ride.

The classic Calico Mine Ride, Knott’s first major attraction and theme park industry icon, will undergo an all-encompassing refurbishment complete with over 50 new state-of-the-art animatronic figures and enhanced scenery. The winding journey takes passengers to underground lakes, waterfalls, caverns filled with thousands of mysterious formations, chambers filled with steaming, bubbling pots and geysers. The design preserves the impressive forced perspective of the mountain range, based on the sites in the authentic ghost town at Calico in California’s Mojave Desert.

The revitalized Calico Mine Ride is scheduled to open early summer of 2014.As a wire and cable supplier to Knott’s, Philatron is proud to be part of the 2014 renovation of the iconic Calico Mine Ride.
