Katie’s Top Ten in Magic Kingdom: #5 Big Thunder Mountain Railway

This is not your average choo choo, this is a runaway mine train! ┬áSo head over to Fronteirland and take a trip on “the wildest ride in the wilderness!”

This roller coaster is very tame, no corkscrews or loops or anything like that. No big drops, either. It’s not super fast, as it reaches 36 mph (58 km/h).

For most of the ride your outside, but you do go in through the mine a couple of times. There are a few little drops, and a lot of twists and turns. Next to Goofy’s Barnstormer, this is the tamest of all of Disney’s coasters (Disneyland included).

This attraction is a definite must!

*Must be 40 inches (102 cm) tall to ride.*
