Best themed coaster around. It's just too much fun to pass up. Not recommended for people with back problems.

Big Thunder Mountain is a very different ride come nightfall.

Howdy Partners...is any one out there? Doesn't any care enough anymore to comment on the wonders of Disney? I love this ride! Give a shout out if you do too. All aboard BTMR!!

This is a family favorite. Easter was a relatively slow day. My seven and nine year old daughters, as well as both my teen sons demanded that we ride this over and over and over... at least a dozen times that day alone. It's a great ride.

Always use a Fastpass, always sit in the last/rear cart and "hang onto those hats and glasses......"from your friends at BTMR.

One of the best rides in the park. Very fun and theme and details of ride are well designed.

User ID: RAVENSWIFT412   Thrill: 3  Theme: 4  Overall: 4 (5/15/2009)
This was the first roller coaster i had ever been on, and i loved it some of the best theming i've seen in the park.

User ID: EDLOFQ   Thrill: 3  Theme: 3  Overall: 4 (3/11/2009)
This ride was the runaway favorite of my two girls, ages 4 and 9. It became the standard against which they judged all the other rides. It is tamer for adults, but still very fun, and the theme is absolutely first-rate, even beautiful. Even the queuing area is well-conceived.

User ID: crystaltink   Thrill: 2  Theme: 3  Overall: 3 (3/1/2009)
Not quite as thrilling as Space Mountain but this one is definitely one worth the wait. My tip, ride it at night when the Fantasmic or the fireworks show is on, the view combined with the thrill is a combination made in heaven.

User ID: tahoedonner   Thrill: 4  Theme: 4  Overall: 4 (11/8/2007)
It's come a long way since it's donkey days...try to time your ride at night(around 9:30) when the fireworks are going off..it adds a whole new experience to the "wildest ride in the wilderness"...a must ride

User ID: emasmomyie   Thrill: 4  Theme: 4  Overall: 4 (8/12/2007)
I love this ride, its a MUST when visiting the park. A staple for sure.

My favorite ride in Disneyland! Always ride with your hands up. Also when you see the goat chewing dynimite keep your eye on him all the way around.

User ID: Sir Charles   Thrill: 3  Theme: 4  Overall: 4 (1/24/2007)
Highly themed roller coaster! No really fast drops, and probably (in this case) better for it. Fun special effects and experience. Not To Be Missed!

Big Thunder Mountain is an adventurous thrill ride through wonderful canyons and earthquaking caves. It's a memorable ride to take with your friends and family. So "hang on to your hats and glasses cause this ride is the wildest ride in the wilderness!"

This is a very fun ride. Themeing is great. We ride it everytime we go to the park.. It would be nice to make it a little faster and a few steeper drops. This make it as fun as Space Mountain...

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is my favourite ride at DL. Even though I have been to the park 15 times I never get tired of this exciting ridge


User ID: Kgschaal   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (2/11/2003)
The best!!!!!!

User ID: rargirl   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (2/7/2003)
Big Thunder Mountain is always fun. "Hold onto your hats and glasses, 'cause this here is the wildest ride in the wilderness'. I have a hunch that my husband loves it too because he changed our answering machine message to that quote when we were anticipating our Disneyland trip. He left if like that for about 6 months. This ride is great during the day when you can see all of the scenery and is exciting at night when you can't see the plunges in the track!

User ID: dizneegrrl   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (1/19/2003)
I love this ride so much!! It's among my favorites (which I have so many of!!). A great, fast coaster for those of you who don't like huge rides, but still want a nice fast-paced ride without being TOO fast. Great!!

User ID: alexsmom2005   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (1/1/2003)
I remembered on going on that ride & it was awesome!!! Much of the effects were great, but it's also tame as Rio Bravo.

User ID: tianjin   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (7/22/2002)
This ride is #2 behind the Matterhorn as best thrill rides in the park. Only draw back is too short of track between lift hills. Great themeing and loads of fun.

I love that ride :)

User ID: FISHBULB   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (6/4/2002)
RATING 4
The mine train ride against which all others are judged. Extensive themeing, and a winding track make this a fun thrill ride for the family. The wait in line isn't even that bad due to the themeing along the line and it's high capacity. Always good, but at night it's better. SIT AS MUCH AWAY FROM THE FRONT AS YOU CAN, the further the better. This is a great attraction. Walt would be proud.

User ID: Disneyland_child   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (6/1/2002)

Thunder mountain is by far one of the best Rides I have ever ridden that has an actual mountain theme to it I always like this ride but I found it better in orlando because the scenery at least to me is much more in detail

Great ride at DL, it can't be missed..but the FP sure can. I don't know why they need it here, with long trains and high capacity it's usually on a crowded day not longer than 30-45 minutes! Anyways, it's a great ride, as long as you don't find yourself in the 1st row...it's too boring.

User ID: funnymanjake   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: Unrated (3/29/2001)
Although tame compared to Six Flags' coasters, the importance, as always with Disney, is in the theming. A classic that still holds up to todays sophistacated families.

It's a good ride that makes Frontierland worthwhile. Why isn't it sponsored by Energizer? It keeps going and going...

User ID: ashermel   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (2/27/2001)
Great ride! Now if Disneyland would only build The Great Western River Expedition in the former Big Thunder Ranch and beyond the north berm (using the water coaster technology that Seaworld FL has used and Michael Eisner likes so much) The origional plan to have the two (Big Thr. and River Exp.) attractions, in Frontierland would be complete!

Big Thunder Mountain is one of the most beautiful rides in Disneyland. It is exquisitly themed and filled with rich colors and textures, from it's rocky peaks to it's coppery pools. Although not the most thrilling coaster, it's scenery and charm make it my favorite Mountain in the park.

User ID: jrslater   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 2 (12/3/2000)
This ride starts out with lots of speed and turns, but I feel that the tail end of this attraction is a dud. I still enjoy none the less, but it doesn't compare to today's modern roller coaters. Also I must say I liked the original earthquake cave better where you could see the rocks falling towards you.

I remember purchasing a 1976 wall map of the park with a picture in the lower left corner and became very excited. At opening in 1979...it was a testament that Disney can take a roller coaster...and give it lots of theming! Though a bit short for my taste, and the last leg of the ride somewhat underwhelming. Another interior scene would do the trick. Still, in my heart, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad will always get an "E" ticket rating.

The best ride, well tied with Indy. Excellent themeing. It's scenery just needs a a little rehab.

I feel it is one of the BEST rides at the park. Our family would always have dinner at the "Casa Mexicana" restaurant then to right to Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.

Best DL ride after dark

User ID: nobeljoe   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (4/2/2000)
This attraction is great.
The ride is even cooler when you ride at night or at twilight.
Hail Big Thunder!!

This ride really is more fun at night, when the wind feels so great when the trains hit high speeds. It is better at the beginning then at the end,
though.

User ID: MintJulep   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (4/2/2000)
It is a really fun ride. I've never not been smiling when I've gotten off of this ride. It's the best at night.

User ID: cwmmdizney   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (4/2/2000)
its cool even tho i didnt get to go on it last night. but its pretty cool.

User ID: voxs   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (4/2/2000)
Excellent theme...
Too bad they didn't extend it into Festival of Fools area. In Paris you go under a lake and ride around an island..
WDW put plenty of track for their ride,Tokyo's really flies !! If
there was a way to extend the track..
that would be cool. But it's going strong for
Twenty years with no changes !! That
says something about good designing !

My favorite of Disneyland's mountains. Excellent theming throughout the queue & ride. Wildest ride in the wilderness!

fun ride

User ID: KDDanielso   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 3 (3/3/2000)
I think this ride is a great ride. The train spins in circle's very fast. I love the first lift hill even though it's loud. This here the wildest ride in the west.

User ID: BJSTX71   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (1/30/2000)
Great ride, a classic!! Fun for the whole family.

User ID: LymanH   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 3 (1/17/2000)
Great ride...I would love to see an update with improved theming and more animatronics thrown into the mix...music like Space Mountain or a narrative to start the ride and give some background would be nice.

User ID: arizonawildcat   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (1/17/2000)
Great ride, fun any time of day or night. Ride in row 15 on right side.

User ID: damon63   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 3 (1/16/2000)
The wildest ride in the wilderness! Hard to believe that 20 years have passed since this one opened. Would love to see some type of modification/enhancement to this attraction in terms of ride and scenery.

My personal favorite

User ID: budgroot   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (1/13/2000)
A match for Splash Mtn as the best attraction at Disneyland.

User ID: SamanthaL   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (1/11/2000)
This IS the wildest ride in the wilderness (it's even wilder if you sit towards the back!) Ride it during the day and the night for two different, but equally great rides. Wonderful theming.

User ID: KAT   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 3 (1/8/2000)
Love the scenery

User ID: Tolja   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (1/6/2000)
My family's favorite, from age 16 to 74!

User ID: WallyBoag   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 3 (1/6/2000)
A nice little roller coaster, but it looses its steam halfway through the ride.

User ID: ni_teach   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (1/6/2000)
Great coaster with effects. Always a smooth ride.

User ID: TPA_RickWest   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (1/4/2000)
Another Disneyland Classic! One of Tony Baxter's first accomplishments as an Imagineer, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is a thrilling, fun-filled family coaster that is a MUST come nightfall. Show lighting and dark tunnels add to the already-brilliant theme of this runaway mine train through abandoned shafts and along coyote-filled canyons!
