I am a big fan of this
ride. You hurtle round corners and look at oar at the magnificent scenery.
I have done this ride 25 times and never been bored. You notice
something new each time. The long queues are worth it with the
air-conditioning it isn't that bad - I love this ride!
I like Big Thunder and it is probably
one of the best themed rides I have ever been on with tons of little
scenery touches will make the ride great. I also think, however, that
the track without the theme would be as dull as cleaning shoes, so it
just goes to show how much theming can add to an experience.
It's a classic Disney Ride - a fun,
family coaster with plenty of action - unfortunately marred by the usual
problem of queue jumping on busy days
I love it. It is nice and
smooth and I can hardly believe it is Vekoma. Even the wheels on the
front of the train turn, and the attention to detail just beggars
belief. I don't think the track on its' own would be 'as dull as
cleaning shoes' but indeed a lot is added by the tunnels and cliff
This is by far the best
coaster in the park. It is long, offers a great ride and makes the
theming on even Space Mountain look lacking. You may queue for ages, but
you get a nice long ride at the end of it, and one which isn't too scary
for the kids.
I agree with John W. The
track is fun, but without the theming it would be nothing. The theming
is so thorough and I still find it hard to believe that the mountain is
See, family coasters don't
have to be boring. I hate Disney, but this ride just blows any other out
of the water.
Thunder Mountain was
brilliant! The queue can get VERY long but it's well worth it! The
scenery and attention to detail is great (typical of Disney) Even
though I expected it to be more thrilling I was still impressed! It's a
great family coaster, well worth a ride!
This ride is Brill. I have
ridden this ride twice and both times I came off the ride laughing my
head off as it is one great ride. This ride certainly earns 5 stars.
Sheer class is hard to find in rides, but Big
Thunder Mountain is one of the few rides that is. Ride; fun,
entertaining. Length; fantastic. Theming; speaks for itself - a whole
mountain was made just for this ride.
This ride really is incredible. It has
underground (actually under water) sections, fast bits, and throughout
well themed parts.
It is a great family ride with dips, twists,
banked turns, and really is fantastic. I was expecting a poor ride when
I looked at it (my only other family coaster having been Vampire - see
review) but after a queue through the very well themed queue-line, I
realised this was not your average family coaster.
Proper family coasters are hard to build by
their very nature. They must have a universal appeal, thrilling older
riders without scaring younger riders out of their wits, and be calm
enough for younger riders without boring older riders stupid. But when
you find one, they are fantastic. So far I have been on three good

lap bars, and a small height restriction - my 7yr old sister went on
All three of these rides are suitable for people
of all ages, but especially BTM, as children of only 4/5 could go on it
with their parents and have fun.
A really incredible ride!
Not only is the ride long and thrilling, especially in the tunnels, but
there are animatronics, a story, and superb scenery. Even the lift hills
are exciting. Best of all, the whole family can enjoy the ride, which is
what probably leads to the only demerit: the long queues. This is my
favourite ride at Disneyland Paris, even beating Pirates of the Caribbean
in my book.
