Matt Anderson's Take
Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is a great roller coaster experience for most of the family. While it is a thrill ride, it's a bit more on the tame side of the thrill-o-meter even if it can be a bit bumpy at times.

You'll board a mine car and then it's off for a wild ride in an abandoned mine shaft and through the wild west. The trains feel like they're going faster than they are due to all of the tight turns and twists.

It's an excellent ride and one I highly recommend. The train has 5 cars on it, each car will hold 6 people with 2 people per row.

Easily my favorite ride at the Magic Kingdom and I don't normally enjoy fast moving thrill rides but this one is just so good.

One of Disney's best roller coasters is also one of its oldest. I love the new coasters they make but nothing beats this classic.

My kind of high speed coaster. Fast enough but not too fast. Smooth and not bumpy and lots of fun.

This one is a lot of fun and offers plenty of thrills yet isn't over the top scary if you're not a coaster enthusiast.
