Zip in & out of a deserted gold mine on a runaway train. It's a swervy, curvy roller coaster ride through steep mountain passes, into caves, under falling boulders & on to Tumbleweed, a flooded mining town. Ride it again & again to take in all the wacky Disney touches.
"The front cart is usually the best choice for coasters, but not this one...the back carts of the "train" whip around a little faster and experience a wilder ride. You might slide from side to side in the cart, so make sure the little ones are in the middle."
Location - Frontierland
This attraction opened September 23, 1980. Look for the gears near the station- they form the silhouette of a famous mouse. See if you can spot the following residents of Tumbleweed: chickens, donkeys, possums, a goat, a longjohn-clad resident spinning through the flood in a bathtub and a rainmaker whose name is Professor Cumulus Isobar. The Frontierland station of the Walt Disney World® Railroad drops you off right next to Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.
