  • The Big Thunder Ranch was a new thing when I was in High School back in the Early 1980's! The Thunder Moutain Roleer Coaster was an awesome edition.  more »

  • A fast-speed train ride thru the dessert canyons in the old west. I came to notice a few small changes in decorations along the ride, most noticeably on the tunnel leading up the blasting cave there is now fiery explosion of the TNT that looks very realistic! On this ride I like sitting towards the back because you get the feeling of faster speed and you don't get the delay of the front cars waiting for the back cars to pass the drop in order to gain speed
  • Why do people think this is the mine train ride? It's not. This is the barn and restaurant area behind it. The ride is called big thunder mountain. It's like reviewing Tomorrowland Terrace and describing Space Mountain. I'm sad that the ranch closed for good, today.
