BIG THUNDER MOUNTAIN RAILROAD
What was the inspirations for Big Thunder Mountain’s rock formations? It was the “hoodoos” of Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah. And the spires on Big Thunder Mountain are TALL. The largest is 104 feet tall!
Hidden Mickeys are hidden throughout the park by Imagineers with unique things in the shape of Mickey Mouse’s head. One is hidden in the large gears on the first hill as part of a mining machine. Cacti can be found in the shape of Mickey’s head as well.
