  • Trip Report Big Thunder Mt upgrade review

    as I promised, here are spoilers to btm.

    So I went on a preview of BTM today. (I went4 times) first major change is for our disabled friends.. the center unload platformwas expanded about 15 feet to make room for wheel chairs waiting and leaving.

    The ride itself is very smooth, my new favorite ride. New lighting everywhere, bat cave updated.

    Idk if the possum family were there before but the 2 babys hanging not spin around the branch.

    The goat moves a little now

    The final scene is amazing. New lighting, new special effects, lots of tnt lots of boom and awsome smoke canon / smoke effects.

    Rainbow ridge is pretty, was the building on the hill behind the original always there? I was expecting some movement in the buildings

    Sounds changed enough to be a worthy ride, and the same old classic for those of us hesitant about change. That's cool!

      Glad to hear about the big booms! The on-ride video I watched didn't show that effect. It must not have been working & that lift seemed really underwhelming!

      Yay for explosions! Wait, I mean "Yay for 'pretend explosions'"!

              As someone in a wheelchair, I am glad to see that Disney is using chances like this to make the park more accessible. While I'm not one of those people who feel self-entitled and complain like crazy when something built in 1955 isn't 100% accessible, I love hearing things like this.

                Can you tell us whether or not there are transfer access vehicles for wheelchair? Meaning the kind of seat where the side pulls away and you can direct transfer from chair to ride? I'm super curious about this.

                  I wonder if they added any random Tony Baxter references to the queue?

                    Each train now has a Transfer Access Vehicle! Before BTM only had two trains with one TAV each now all trains in operation have one! Isn't that amazing? I think it is!

                      My party had a girl in a chair, so we didn't go through the queue, but everyone just walk through the queue without stopping. I didn't notice much difference

                        It looks like the on ride video was missing the smoke effects, without it, it really does suck. Imagine where ever there was a blast of light in the video was a blast of smoke like something exploded and then a final one at top of hill aimed at you

                          Yes, a video of that was posted in the other thread.

                              That is AWESOME news!! Now if only they could implement this + extended leg room for those particular vehicles on every ride, we'd be in business.
