Big Thunder Mountain Railroad Renovation is Complete
All aboard! Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is back—and ready to rumble around Rainbow Ridge again.
The ride was closed down for quite some time, to do repairs on the track and to add additional special effects to the ride.
Disneyland park guests were recently asked to review the newly refurbished attraction. While it was the return of a Frontierland favorite for some and a pioneer trip on the train for others, all passengers agreed it’s still the “wildest ride in the wilderness.
Check out the video of Disneyland park guest reviews below.
About Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
Race along the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad tracks in a runaway mine car—and watch for new surprises along the way! This classic Disneyland attraction is back, and better than ever before.
Amid rugged bedrock and desert cactus, venture inside a barren mountain to the Big Thunder Mining Company, established in the early days of America’s Gold Rush. Traipse down and discover a mysterious 5-car locomotive waiting to take you on a journey inside an abandoned mine shaft.
Hurl forward into the darkness of a tunnel as the train’s wheels chug back and forth across a winding track. Swoop around sharp turns and dip and drop into canyons and caves, darting through the ghost town of Big Thunder.
Peel under a booming waterfall, past rock formations, and dodge a rumbling boulder from an unexpected landslide. Glimpse the remnants of an earthquake and behold a bevy of local critters—including bats, opossum and a goat with a stick of dynamite in his mouth—before hastily making your way back to the safety of the railroad station.
Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is a speedy rollercoaster-type attraction designed with your entire family in mind. However, some parts of this attraction are bumpy and, in some instances, take place in the dark. – Disneyland
