Last year, the Matterhorn Bobsleds underwent a period of refurbishment – now, it’s Big Thunder Mountain Railroad’s turn!
The attraction at Disneyland Park will be closing January 7, 2013 for a major overhaul. The updates will include brand-new ride vehicles (but will remain in the style of the trains we all know and love,) and new track, but the ride will still follow the current course. Furthermore, sections of the mountain will be repainted to give the attraction a fresh look and feel.
Additional updates and remodels will be announced throughout the year, but if you plan to ride this attraction one more time before it closes, head on over to Disneyland Park by January 6. The refurbished attraction will re-open sometime in Fall 2013.
Check back throughout the year for updates and further information as it becomes available.
