After more than 13 months of renovation, Disneyland Paris Big Thunder Mountain had its re-opening ceremony Saturday December 17 and Max, D&M contributor and DLPWelcome webmaster shot pictures for you, but before, an important note for my FRENCH readers: Please don't miss the important message at the end of the article!
It's Daniel Delcourt, from DLP Operations who did the re-opening ceremony and sent all his thanks to the team thanks to whom DLP Frontierland shines again like it never did since opening day! Mickey and Minnie were with him to symbolically cut the ribbon!
Here is the video of the reopening ceremony.
As i said in my previous update the result of Big Thunder Mountain renovation is stunning! All props, animated or not, are back. And the adventure is even more epic due to the explosive final of the ride. The cleaned, repainted and colourful mountain looks better than ever with new vegetation and effects fully reviewed. The theme of the whole ride has been strengthened for our biggest pleasure! Below, new pictures and the video of the full ride.
A special commemorative issue of the Thunder Mesa Daily Messengerwas released on this special day!
But there is also something new which didn't exist before, and it's a new building which hide the tanks of Co2 needed for the new explosive final of the ride. Good shelling, it looks like it has always been there!
It's not only Big Thunder Mountain which reopened last Saturday, but also the Rivers of the Far-West and the Molly Brown!
Here, too, the renovation efforts were considerable. All has been redone, the work is simply remarkable and the highlight of the show are the geysers. which are back, at last! Wonderful quality of execution and the return of effects… more than 10 years after their disappearance. We discover all details, all elements, all the geysers… For the visitors the show experience is better than ever!
Here is a third great video in which you'll discover the new geysers effects!
And now, here is the IMPORTANT MESSAGE for my french readers, and specifically those who don't own yet the Disneyland Paris book:
NOTE IMPORTANTE A L'ATTENTION DE CEUX QUI NE POSSEDENT PAS ENCORE LE LIVRE "DE L'ESQUISSE A LA CREATION": Il reste environ 60 exemplaires de cette édition collector française du livre, qui ne sera pas rééditée car c'était une édition limitée à 2000 exemplaires. En conséquence et compte tenu que l'offre spéciale de Noel court toujours ( voir ci-dessous ) 30 exemplaires ( sur les 60 restant ) peuvent toujours bénéficier de l'offre spéciale de Noel à 60 euros, et les 30 derniers exemplaires seront vendus au prix normal du livre, 100 euros. Il n'y aura donc PAS de nouvelle promotion et je ne saurais que trop conseiller à ceux qui n'ont pas encore le livre de profiter de l'offre de Noel tant qu'il en reste!
