Big Thunder Mountain Railroad has reopened after refurbishment. Actually, it reopened 1 day earlier than expected. Originally Big Thunder was due to be down from June 7 until June 13. Guests that we spoke to were happy to live up quickly in the morning to ride the Mountain.

A favorite ride where fans can “Race through a haunted gold mine aboard a speeding train on this thrilling coaster-style ride.” Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is located in Frontierland, next to Splash Mountain, the iconic image of famous sandstone formations can be seen across the park. Definitely missed it while it was down for a few days.

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

Legend has it that soon after gold was first discovered here in the 1850s, eerie things began to happen. Trains would take off and race through tunnels—by themselves.

After you arrive at the legendary Big Thunder Mining Company, descend into an abandoned mine shaft and board your train. As you enter the cursed cavern, the engine speeds up along the rickety track. Dodge exploding dynamite and falling boulders as you swoop around turns, drop into canyons, and dart through the mysterious ghost town of Tumbleweed.
