 Review of Big Thunder Mountain @ Magic Kingdom
0 Rating Posted by: James N. on 8/23/2007 11:19:00 PM
Big Thunder is one of my favorites at the Magic Kingdom park. This was probably the second "roller coaster" I ever road (after Space Mountain that is). I loved it then and I love it now.
Big Thunder (along with Space Mountain) is a great "training coaster". Really good to get ready to ride the big ones like The Hulk and Dueling Dragons. The atmosphere is really good. I love the "old rickety mine" theme. The zig zaggity bumpy tracks give it a delightful "it could break and fall off the track at any moment" feel. Its short but sweet.
Thats the only problem with Thunder Mountain... its too short. I get on and before I know it... its the end. It makes me want more. Thats the only reason I dont give this a 10. Nit picky sure, but still...
Is it worth waiting over an hour? Not at all. Its way too short. Get a fast pass for sure or go at a time when the line doesnt exceed 20 minutes.
Will the kids like it? Like I said, its a great ride for introducing roller coasters so yes, I think they should. Definitely take them on this before riding Space Mountain which is longer and more intense.
I give this ride a 9 out of 10.
