Grizzly Thunder Mountain Mine Carts is a steel rollercoaster at Disney Universe Fantasy Kingdom

Ride Summary


The queue winds through rockwalls and caves. After going down some stairs, guests enter an undeground boarding station.


Riders board one of several trains which seat 24 riders each. The train leaves the station and heads towards a tunnel. An animatronic grizzly bear accidentally pulls a lever which sends passengers down a different tunnel. The train makes some twists and turn throguha tunnel and then begins to climb a hill in the style of a traditional roller coaster. Once the train nears the top of the mountain the lift cable appears to break causing the riders to go back down the hill in reverse and along a different track before entering another mine. Two animatronic bears are located inside the mine and one sets off some TNT causing the train to launch out of the mine on yet another track. The train goes down a big drop into a dark tunnel and makes a left turn. After a short straightaway during which the sounds of bats can be heard, the trains make a slight right hand turn and climb a lift hill. A series of caverns can be seen on the right hand side of the lift hill track. At the top, once again, it slows down and riders make a drop away to the left, before making a right hand turn and going over two hops. The trains make a tight downwind spiral to the right into a short tunnel. Emerging from the tunnel, riders find themselves in the abandoned town of Tumbleweed. While passing through Tumbleweed, the track goes through several bunny hops, and the train seems to sway from side to side. After Tumbleweed, the trains pass through a short tunnel called Dave V. Jones Mine, make a left turn and climb the second lift hill. At the top, the train slows down and the riders drop away to the left and cross back under the lift hill as the trains rise up into a 540 degree downhill helix to the left, before going over another airtime hill before dropping back down. The trains make a right hand turn into a tunnel, and climb the third lift hill. An earthquake is in progress and the rocks seem ready to crush and bury the train. Cresting the lift hill, the trains slow down and exit out into the daylight, and drop away to the left before they make a left hand turn through a short tunnel, crossing back over the drop, and then drop away to the right through the boneyard and geysers before hitting the final brake run and returning to the station.
