Big Thunder Mountain Railroad at Disneyland reopens today with new enhancements

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad to reopen at Disneyland with new improvements

BTM-1024x674

The wildest ride in the wilderness reopened today with an upgraded track, restoration of the historic Rainbow Ridge Mining Town, new paint on portions of the mountain and updates to the train vehicles. Guests taking a ride on this runaway mine train will discover some new surprises, too.

The makeover features enhanced audio system that sharpens the sounds heard by guests on the trains and in the caverns and buildings. Even the wildlife at Big Thunder can be heard more distinctly.  Nearly a half-mile of track was replaced to provide a smoother ride for guests.

The ride was closed for more than a year during the refurbishment.
