Newest Review: ... much attention is paid to the back story, I only know about it because I read about it! The rock which the ride spirals around looks quite authentic (it's supposed to look like mid to late 19th century red rock formations of the American Southwest) but is quite obviously man made. The rocks (and the queueing area) are covered by old wooden barrels, empty wagons, lanterns, rusty wheels and ... more

Big Thunder Mountain is a ride in Magic Kingdom (Florida). There is also a version of the same ride in Disneyland Paris, Tokyo Disneyland and Disneyland California. This is one of the parks most popular rides and was first opened in 1980. It can be found in 'Frontierland' next to an attraction called Splash Mountain. As with all the rides in Magic Kingdom you don't have to pay to ride Big Thunder Mountain as the price for rides is included in the entry fee. You can't miss Big Thunder Mountain as it is set on a huge orange/red rock and as the ride is in constant use trains go by every minute or so. The story behind the ride is that a gold was discovered on Big ... Read the complete review

Big Thunder Mountain is known as one of the "Three Mountains" in the Magic Kindom, Florida. (The others being Splash Mountain and Space Mountain). It is essentially a run away mine train type ride, that takes you through sharp turns, steep hills and drops and has some interesting scenery along the way. Big Thunder Mountain is one of the Magic Kingdoms most popular attractions and as a result can get pretty busy, especially in peak times. I would suggest wither getting their early or get a Disney fast pass to reduce your queuing time. The background story to the ride is that this was a thriving mining town that suffered from a Flash Flood. ... Read the complete review

Big Thunder Mountain is basically a runaway mine train type roller coaster. It doesn't go too fast and the drops aren't huge, the thrill comes mostly from the rattling, tilting and shaking as you travel through the fake abandoned mine. As with all Disney rides it is very well themed with lots of detail. If you can ride with your eyes open there's plenty to look out for including the elusive Hidden Mickeys. You will have to ride it quite a few times to see all the detail but it is, worth it. You board the train and sit in little carts like you would expect to see in a gold mine and after some banter and sometimes singing from the cast members the ... Read the complete review

Thunder mountain is a family rollercoater set in the frontierland section of the Magic Kingdom, Disneyworld, Orlando, Florida. Magic Kingdom is a childs heaven, but within it there are small elements of grown up fun.... And thunder mountain is one of them. Its basically set around a huge sand coloured mountain - and the theme of the ride is a runaway mine train. The first carriage is right behind the front of the train, and each subsequent cart is a carriage. Passengers sit in twos, side by side, and are secured by a lap belt. This ride does not go upside down, but it does go in and out of dark tunnels and you do ... Read the complete review

This coaster can be found in the Magic Kingdom, in frontier land, and is part of their 'mountain range' namely thunder mountain, splash mountain and space mountain. Big thunder mountain in terms of real coasters is quite tame, only reaching speeds of about 30mph, so is a great introduction to coasters, or when kids are getting tired of the kiddie coasters, but for me who has a fear of them all, I found this quite exhilarating, I screamed all the way round. Just to note, this does not go upside down, which I was quite relieved to find out. There are no huge drops that you would associate with regular coasters only mild dips, but its enough. The ...
