Disney's Halloween Festival


Hang on to your hats and glasses, 'cause this here is the wildest ride in the wilderness! The disused Big Thunder Railroad has been fired up and kicked back into action, ready to welcome guests for a non-stop, high-speed tour of the magnificent mountain landscape.

After swooping underneath the Rivers of the Far West, you emerge on the island to discover the tunnel is being flooded with water, whilst the second is about to collapse and another is filled with bats! Will you make it up, over and around this legendary mountain in time?

Fun Facts

This is the only Big Thunder Mountain attraction in the world to be situated on an island, completely isolated from the park. Trains reach the island and arrive back on the mainland through two long, sweeping tunnels.

22,700 Litres of paint were used to give the mountain its authentic Far West ochre glow.
