  • [Question] Will Big Thunder get a Single Rider option?

    I'm curious: when Big Thunder reopens, is there a chance that it will have a Single Rider option? Splash Mountain has and the Matterhorn now has it, and so does the Indiana Jones ride. So will Big Thunder have it, too?
    My top favorite Disneyland attractions:

    1. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
    2. Pirates of the Caribbean
    3. Splash Mountain
    4. Mad Tea Party
    5. Peter Pan's Flight
    6. Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin

    I think it will depend on the seating configuration of the new trains and if there is still a single shared lap bar vs. individual lap bars. It would be kind of uncomfortable to share a lapbar with a total stranger and repeatedly slide into them on the turns.

      If it's still one long shared seat per row (not individual seats like all the other single rider attractions), then no.

          I would hate for them to get rid of the one lap bar. I know there are safety concerns, but sliding around is half the fun of Big Thunder.

            As long as there is a single lap bar, there will not be a single rider line for Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, just my opinion!

              I sure hope not. It will just make the standby wait longer.

                The opposite actually.

                  I would assume not, even if they do go with the individual bucket seats. Too difficult to configure...

                  Granted, I said that about Matterhorn...

                    As long as they don't add seats that are as uncomfortable as the Matterhorn ones I will be happy.

                    I can't see them doing it if they keep the single bar configuration, either. Crashing into a stranger for the whole ride might be awkward. I thought that they planned to get rid of the single bars for safety reasons, though.

                      Even if there were individual lap bars I would still feel uncomfortable sitting alone with a stranger.

                        if they make them bucket seats and not a bench it really is no different than Indy or RSR or Screamin for singles rider. I am betting they go to individual seats for safety reasons, and then single rider would be an obvious (and welcome, to me at least) addition.

                            I've done Screamin SR before, and I don't like it at all. The person next to you is all like "Where did this random guy come from?"

                              The SR on RSR is a bit awkward. Last time I rode they put a guy next to me who talked through the entire ride. It's like, I stood in line to ride. Not to make friends.
