The kids get lost and wind up in the spooky ghost town of Gold City. They check into the local ranch house hotel only to find that they are the only ones in this nice hotel--all the other guests are being scared away by the "Miner 49'er," a miner who came to the city in 1849 and won't leave until he finds the last vein of gold in the city's old mine. The kids investigate the town, find a hidden entrance to the old mine, and unmask the "Miner 49'er"--and the real "gold" that the miner was digging up. Written by Spirit11

Very underrated episode: Mine Your Own Business
7 August 2015 | by morantjavonteSee all my reviews

Taking place in a abandon town, the gang try to investigate a mystery why a 150 year old miner is haunting a town. This is an underrated episode. I been understand why some people say it's a weak episode. Likely because of the villain just being an old man with a long beard. I still think it's really entertaining. The Miner 49er is a very interesting villain. The setting and the atmosphere in this episode are so good. It makes the episode more creepy. Also the Miner in the show has a really great moan. It sounds so creepy, you can understand why the gang gets creeped out.

Overall a excellent episode. 10/10
