For thrill seekers spending a day at Magic Kingdom, consider conquering the mountains. This includes the classic 3: Big Thunder, Space & Splash Mountain and more! Have you conquered all 5 of these? #5 is for guests of all ages!
1. Big Thunder Mountain
Guests 40″ or taller can board their train for Big Thunder Mountain in Frontierland. Guests will ride through a haunted gold mine, with speeds topping at 36mph. This thrilling roller coaster does not feature any large drops, however it is a longer ride lasting over 3 minutes. Discover if the legend is true, set in the 1850s after America’s Gold Rush, trains would start by themselves!
2. Space Mountain
Guests will find the large dome that encompasses Space Mountain, in Tomorrowland. Guests must be 44″ or taller to blast off into outer space on this indoor attraction. Guests are seated in a rocket-shaped inspired cart (seating 3 each in a row). This roller-coaster mostly occurs in the dark, with top speeds at 27mph, however lighting effects and the darkness make it feel faster. Fun fact, Space Mountain is NASA approved with help from the Mercury 9 and Gemini 5 astronaut Gordon Cooper on the creative team to bring this attraction to life.
3. Splash Mountain
Guests 40″ and taller can ride Splash Mountain, in Frontierland. This classic attraction features over 100 audio-animatronics such as frogs, raccoons, alligators and more. Plus, sing along to “Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah”. Follow along with Br’er Rabbit and more before the thrilling 5-story drop. Guests will reach up to 40mph on their decend into the Briar patch. Be prepared to get wet!
4. Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
Guests will find Seven Dwarfs Mine Train in Fantasyland. While this 2014 does not contain Mountain in the name, this family-friendly coaster has quickly become a favorite mountain to ride.
