Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is a mine-train themed roller coaster in Frontierland.  It sometimes goes underground and undergoes periods of darkness.  The railroad then travels through a desert before arriving back at the starting point.  It can be scary for younger children, but it is an exhilarating thrill ride.  The lines are often over an hour long.  Here’s an interview with my sister, Chrissy, who is nine years old.

  • Pxzi: How did you like the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad?
  • Chrissy: I thought it was fun and exciting.
  • Pxzi: Was it worth the LONG wait?
  • Chrissy: It really was! (but when you get off, you may feel kind of dizzy)  I recommend getting Fast Passes.
  • Pxzi: What is it like?
  • Chrissy: Pretty fast but not so fast you’ll toss your cookies.  It’s fun!
  • Pxzi: Is it scary?
  • Chrissy: A little bit when you’re underground.
  • Pxzi: That concludes our interview!  See you later!
  • Chrissy: Bye Bye!

Splash Mountain is a fun log flume in Frontierland.  It tells the story of a young rabbit who runs away from home in search of an adventure.  He then gets captured by a fox, but he cleverly escapes and goes back to his family.  The ride features the wonderfully silly “Laughing Place,” lots of singing animals, and the song “Zippedy-Doo-Da.”  However, there are a couple of mildly spooky spots, such as the fox’s lair.  Two people can sit in each row, so parents can sit with little children.  As you float along the water in log shaped boats, you will experience several small dips and drops, plus one five story waterfall leading directly into the briar patch.  All I can say is PREPARE TO GET WET!!!

Here’s an interview with my seven year old sister, Rosie.

  • Pxzi: What’s your favorite thing about Splash Mountain?
  • Rosie: When you go down the BIG waterfall!
  • Pxzi: Is it scary?
  • Rosie: No, not for me.
  • Pxzi: Did any of your valubles ever get wet?
  • Rosie: My dress did.
  • Pxzi: Is the line long?
  • Rosie: Sometimes it’s REALLY long and sometimes it’s not long at all.
  • Pxzi: Is it always worth the wait?
  • Rosie: YES YES YES YES YES YES YES!!!!!!!
  • Pxzi: On a scale of one to ten, how fun is it?
  • Rosie: Superdy Duperdy fun!  On a scale of one to ten, it’s 100 and a half!
