Big Thunder Mountain Railroad To Get New Interactive Queue And Expanded Storyline

Hang onto your hats and glasses, folks, cause this here’s the wildest ride in the wilderness!”  Exciting news from the Magic Kingdom as Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is going to be getting an updated story line and queue!

The Disney Parks Blog has reported the enhanced backstory which has introduced Barnabas T. Bullion, a gold magnate who ruled the Big Thunder Mining Company.

The back story tells the tale of Barnabus, the founder and president of the Big Thunder Mining Company.  He is obsessed with mining gold but it having a tough go of it at Big Thunder Mountain, which superstitious locals say is protecting its gold by cursing those who try to take it.  Because of this the mine is plagued with disasters including runaway trains.

Portraits of Barnabas as well as Big Thunder Mountain will be displayed in the queue along with other interactive elements that have been teased by the Disney Parks Blog “to be a blast.”

Disney has found great success in developing interactive queues for its parks.  In Walt Disney World new interactive queues have been met with rave reviews at Winnie the Pooh, Space Mountain as well as EPCOT’s Soarin‘ and a soon to be redone queue in Test Track.

What do you think the Imagineers have in store for the Big Thunder Mountain queue?  What would you like to see?  Let us know!

Speaking of waiting in line, while I am waiting in line I like to kill some time playing using the all new Disney Wi-Fi available in all of the parks!
