Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

Wildest Ride in the Wilderness

Legend has it that eerie incidents have occurred in the mine after gold was discovered in the 1850s. Trains would accelerate and travel down the track on their own, and there’s no explanation as to how. You’re aboard one of these trains, and you’re about to discover what it has in store for you.

Our Overview

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is not an intense roller coaster, but it definitely packs a punch. The themed environment, which Disney is known for excelling at, further enhances the ride. You can’t leave Disneyland without visiting this attraction.

Disney Genie+

Disney Genie+ Participating Attraction

Disney Genie+ is a paid service that allows guests to use Disneyland Resort’s express line system at select attractions. Guests can choose an available arrival window at participating attractions, one at a time, all day long. During the arrival window, guests head back to the attraction using a separate Lightning Lane* line with shorter wait times than the regular line. Disney Genie+ attraction selections are available on a first-come, first-served basis and are not guaranteed. Disney Genie+ also includes unlimited Disney PhotoPass photo downloads from the day. Disney Genie+ is not valid at Individual Lightning Lane attractions.

* Lightning Lane refers to the name of the line guests using Disney Genie+ and/or Individual Lightning Lane will utilize; however, the two services⁠—Disney Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane⁠—are not the same service. Disney Genie+ is not valid at Individual Lightning Lane attractions, and Individual Lightning Lane is not valid at Disney Genie+ participating attractions.
