Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

    Streak through a haunted gold mine aboard a speeding train on this thrilling coaster-style ride. This Disneyland Park mine train roller coaster takes you on a rickity ride with plenty of surprises along the way.

    Shoot under a booming waterfall and dodge a falling boulder from an unexpected landslide as you swoop around sharp turns and drop into desolate canyons.

    Big Thunder Mountain Railroad’s duration is around 4 minutes long. Guests must be at least 40 inches to ride.

    Fun Facts:

    The miniature ghost town of Big Thunder that you roll past at the end of the attraction predates Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. Originally named Rainbow Ridge, the town is one of several elements from the Rainbow Caverns Mine Train (later called Mine Train through Nature’s Wonderland) that transported Guests around Frontierland from 1956 to 1977.
