The Big Thunder Mountain Has Re-opened

The Big Thunder Mountain Railroad Magic Kingdom Disney

The Big Thunder Mountain Railroad has finally re-opened on November 19, 2016 after 4 months of refurbishment!
The Big Thunder Mountain Railroad underwent a major refurbishment last summer 2016 for the first time since 2012. It has now re-opened and is ready to welcome you and your family for a fun ride back in time of gold mining!

This adventurous ride gets its storyline from back in the 1850s were gold was discovered in the American Southwest. In the space of one night a small mining town became a thriving centre for the gold mining industry. A very long line of mine trains was created in order to transport the gold extracted from the Thunder Mountain. Hop on the train and let it take you back in time for an unforgettable adventure! Ride along the 200 foot mountain to the gold mining company where legends of ghosts and supernatural events have been revived by Disney World in the Magic Kingdom.

All refurbished and almost brand new, you can now enjoy the spectacular new lightings effects on the mountain and geysers, a smoother ride as new track sections were installed during the refurbishment, and a fresh splash of paint has given the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad a new fresher look, ready for excitement and adventure.

This ride has been designed for the thrill of the whole family to make sure children and grown-ups have the time of their life!!
