  • [Fun] Big Thunder Mountain RailRoad Differences

    Can anyone tell me the main differences between BTMRR at Disneyland vs WDW, Paris, and Tokyo?
    It seems like in WDW and Tokyo, you go up really high on the big lift. Does it do this in DL?

    Thanks,

    i believe WDW has a mirrored track layout and their loading station is a downstairs, indoors area, you enter the dark tunnel from there. paris is on an island but you load on the main land and the train takes a tunnel under the water to the island, which i think is very cool. as for tokyo, i'm not sure what the different w/ that one is.

      I would love to go on the Paris one. It looks so cool in snow. Oh, and the disney world one is a mirrored layout except for a little scene that is added before you go up the final lift. The scene is a flooded mine town and the cars lean to left and right.

        You are correct in the differences with Paris. Paris's is a really good version and I like it better than the one here.

          Actually, a more acurate way to say it is Disneyland's track layout is a mirrored verion of everyone else's, except for the cayote scene. At WDW and everywhere else it is replaced by the flooded town scene before the second lift.

            But isnt Paris's different as well due to the fact that it goes under ground?

              but DL's BTMRR was built before the ones at the other parks..
              so, the other one's mirror ours.

                  WDW opened at the end of 1980.
                  Tokyo's opened in 1987. and Paris' opened in 1992.

                  that was Tony Baxter's first major job once becoming an Imagineer. he was told to do something with the old Mine Train Ride.

                      But still, the original was designed for WDW. But then they implemented the mirrored version in DL before WDW.

                        The original version was designed for Walt Disney World.
                        They created a mirror image for Disneyland and it was built first.
                        A year later, the WDW version opened.

                          Dear Peoplemover Fans, If you want to see a new attraction that at least mimics the 1967 Peoplemover in a future Tomorrowland remodel, you need to write to the powers-that-be, and let them know. If you don't - Then the next time Tomorrowland is remodeled, you will see a land barren of any "Peoplemover" type attraction.

As you can see below we've created some T-shirts, plus a few simple graphics that you can copy and paste into your websites to let folks know how you feel.

                              The DL, WDW, and Tokyo versions are the same rides, just mirror images. The Paris version has a unique layout, and from what I've heard, seriously intense and thrilling.
