I saw this when they were spray painting it in 1979.... record books say it took 16,000 gallons of paint and a lot of steel and concrete.
little did I know it would become one of my favorite attractions. I am not fond of rollercoasters but Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, of course, by Disney.
The ride feels faster than it is and is peculiarly smooth for a rollercoaster. A tourguide said they used a novel kind of track but didn't expand on the subject. If you ride Space Mountain and compare, you will see what I mean. Unless they change the tracks at Space Mountain and then you'll just say, "oh, what a smooth ride!" Just ride it.
