Hong Kong Disneyland readies Big Grizzly Mountain for its opening
Written by Robert Niles
Disney's newest mountain roller coaster has opened for previews at Hong Kong DisneylandTweet
The best way I can describe Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Cars is that it appears to be a mashup of Thunder Mountain and Expedition: Everest. You can see for yourself what the ride's like in this fan-filmed POV video:
(Disney's not announced any prohibition against filming while on this ride, so I'm going with this video. In fact, Disney seems to have become quite a bit more lenient about on-ride photography in recent years. There are no restrictions against photos and video on Radiator Springs Racers, for example. But that's another topic.)
Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Cars opens officially in five days, as a the centerpiece of the new Grizzly Gulch section of the theme park, the second of three new mini-lands being added to the Hong Kong park as part of its "whoops, Disney opened a too-small park, yet again" expansion. Toy Story Playland opened last year and Mystic Manor is slated for 2013.
