Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

Walt Disney World has revealed that Big Thunder Mountain Railroad will become the latest Magic Kingdom attraction to receive an updated, interactive queue.

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad closed for a lengthy refurbishment earlier this year, reopening in May. Large sections of the roller coaster's track were replaced, and several scenes surrounding it were upgraded. However, the Disney Parks Blog has now confirmed that further work will be undertaken to improve the queue area.

Disney has yet to confirm the exact nature of the interactive elements that will be on offer for guests waiting in line for the Western-themed coaster. However, it has revealed that the new additions will tie-in with the backstory of the ride, which is based around the Big Thunder Mining Company.

In recent years, Walt Disney World has added interactive queues to a number of its most popular attractions in order to ease the boredom of waiting. This has included the installation of games in the Space Mountain queue, spooky updates to the Haunted Mansion's graveyard and a new "virtual queue" for Dumbo the Flying Elephant.
