Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is one of the three Magic Kingdom mountains and features a runaway train as it goes through an abandoned mining town.

This roller coaster is a moderately intense experience perfect for the whole family.

This ride is not the smoothest roller coaster, but it should still be good for most visitors.

Special Information

As you go down the first drop after the second lift hill, look up and to the left as you go down the turn, focusing on the peak. This is known as the "goat trick" in the Disneyland version of the ride and trust me it makes the turn a lot more exciting.
