Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

Big Thunder Railroad

The Big Thunder Mountain Railroad opened in 1979. This one in Disneyland is modeled after Bryce Canyon while the one in Disney World is based on Monument Valley. This big mountain is 104' tall and covers two acres. Lots of gold-mining decorations dot the surrounding area. I confess I've only been on this a couple of times because it is very jolty and often closed when I stroll past it in the evenings. Which makes me a little nervous. ;) I have a thing with roller coasters, even tame ones.
