This Here's The Wildest Ride In.....Westernland!


Today, let's mosey on over to Frontier.....uh, Westernland. That's what Tokyo Disneyland calls their version of Frontierland. From my understanding, the name change has something to do with "Western" translating better in Japanese. The photos today show Big Thunder Mt. Railroad. Tokyo's track layout is similar to Walt Disney World's with the exception of a couple extra small twists and turns through a couple extra mine tunnels. Also, Tokyo's version feels like the track is much higher up and that the drops might be a little larger than any other version of this attraction. I'm not positive about this, but after riding Anaheim's Big Thunder MANY times, I definitely feel like everything is taller in Tokyo's version. Hold on to your hats and glasses......

The shot above is a little blurred because it was taken from a Western River Railroad train car while it was moving to the right, while the Big Thunder Mt. train car was moving to the left.

Viewliner, thanks again for the compliments! I do hope you get to go sometime....I can't recommmend the two Tokyo parks enough! The Japanese actually "do" Disney better than us now.
