I read this in an article from The Christian Science Monitor, published in 1980, called "Denver's Elitch Gardens: 90 years worth of fun" about the ride Gold Fever by Bill Tracy:
Gold Fever offers a hilarious ride through scenes of an Old West mining camp in a car resembling the "surrey with the fringe on top." You pass animated scenes including a barroom brawl, a bank robbery, a jailbreak, a hanging, and a frontier envangelist preaching salvation. Both Gold Fever and the Splinter were designed by Maurice Ayers, who was the scenic designer for the Movie "Paint Your Wagon."
So, was this ride made after Bill's death? The article said it was made for the park's 90th anniversary. Any help? Thanks!

HHMacabre: Hi everyone! Did I hear word of new additions in the ride? How is the Mineshaft?

Brandon: Yes, there are supposed to be two new effects installed this year. I don't have any insight yet but will share the information once I receive it. I don't think anything has been done with the Shaft.

Brandon: There have also been three additional mini shooting galleries installed around the park. Pics and information to come a later date at ochh.net.
