The following scene in Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is easily overlooked. Although it is crucial to building dramatic tension in the pre-ride show, it is easily missed from the stand-by queue since that line wraps around the inside of the building. However, from the FastPass line you have an outside path to the train, so your view of the impending doom is first class. The rub is that most FastPassers scoot through the line expeditiously and overlook the scene developing to their left. If you take a moment to stop and look, you will see that the Imagineers carefully crafted a very foreboding scene: a broken bridge falling into disrepair, about to end someones train ride tout de suite, awaits the next train. If that one survives the rickety structure, then surely the next one will plummet. That is a spectacular detail that can be easily overlooked and is often not far from your field of view. Our suggestion? Let a few people pass you and take a good, thorough look around. The few people you let scurry past will lose more than they gain.

I’ve siad it time and again, Thunder Mountain is one of my favorite attractions, and pieces like this just solidify its placement amongst the great!
THIS is the type of stuff I love. Nice post, George!
I’m surprised you didn’t catch the small crate just under the bridge on the left . . .
Made ya look!
I see that evil Jeff is in the house!
I hope you have a crate time at WDW this weekend!
