Big Thunder Mountain

Based on the storyline of a mine train gone wild, Thunder Mountain is a fun, exciting ride full of twists and turns. Riders see bats, caves, and even some dinosaur bones— this roller coaster is great for anyone who likes a good shaking. It doesn't go upside down, and is a good first coaster for kids. It's located inside Magic Kingdom, and I enjoy riding it later into the night for the view. It's partially indoor and partially outdoor, and around a 6 on the scare level. This old mine train ride may be a bit bumpy!I'd recommend this ride for anyone 7 and up, once again depending upon the child riding. Here are the basic statistics.

Top Speed: 40.4 mph
