Minecarts allow a player to ride on Minecart Tracks.

On the Desktop Version Desktop version and Console Version Console version, the Minecart is a Craftable item which can be equipped in the Minecart equipment slot and dyed (the default Wooden Minecart can be dyed as well, without an item in the slot). It is the second tier Minecart, being worse than the Mechanical Cart, but better than the default Wooden Minecart.

The Minecart has a max speed of 48.4 blocks per second, or 66 mph. The time to reach max speed is about 5 seconds. Desktop VersionConsole Version The default Wooden Minecart's max speed is 37.4 blocks per second or 51 mph, taking 6 seconds to reach max speed.If a minecart hits a monster (or another player when PvP is on) while at top speed, that monster will take from 70-110 damage.

  • Using the Umbrella and jumping off the minecart track will maintain vertical velocity.
  • The default Minecart (for 1.2.4) is the only available Minecart in the Mobile only.pngMobile and 3DS logo.svg versions.
