DDW Pic 808. Thunder Mountain
Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is one of the best themed roller coasters anywhere. Although most guests don't know the "story" behind the runaway mine train, they still enjoy the scenery found in the ghost town of Tumbleweed. Even though the coaster is racing around the mountain at speeds up to 30 mph, the details that can be seen are quite amazing. This shot of the flooded "Gold Dust Saloon" wouldn't be possible while riding Thunder Mountain, but I was able to take it from the nearby Walt Disney World Railroad, as I rode by yesterday. If you look closely, you can even see the abandoned card game that was being played before the flood came!
