“Hang onto your hats and glasses, folks, cause this here’s the wildest ride in the wilderness!”
Big Thunder Mountain is guaranteed to get Guests’ adrenaline going — especially if you sit in the back of the train. But did you know that if you do this additional trick while riding Big Thunder Mountain, you will feel an extra G-force boost?
Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is located in both Walt Disney World and Disneyland, though each version is slightly different and tells its own version of the backstory. If you are visiting Disneyland in the near future, and are looking for a G-force boost — make sure to stare at the goat.
Yes, this may sound odd, but many Guests have tested out this trick and it actually works! One user took to TikTok to share a video of this trick, saying if Guests stare at the goat as they pass by, they will feel a G-force boost while riding. And the added bonus? If you sit in the back the force feels even stronger!

Per the official Disneyland website:
Hang Onto Yer Hats!
Legend has it that after gold was discovered in the 1850s, eerie incidents took place in the mine. Trains would take off and race through tunnels… by themselves.
As you enter the cursed cavern, your train speeds up along the rickety track. Shoot under a booming waterfall and dodge a falling boulder from an unexpected landslide as you swoop around sharp turns and drop into desolate canyons.
On this rip-roaring adventure, you may learn that some legends turn out to be true…
How Scary Is it?
Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is a fast rollercoaster-type attraction designed for kids and adults. However, some sections of this attraction are bumpy and take place in the dark.
A Bit of Disneyland Lore
The miniature ghost town of Big Thunder that you roll past at the end of the attraction predates Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. Originally named Rainbow Ridge, the town is one of several elements from the Rainbow Caverns Mine Train (later called Mine Train through Nature’s Wonderland) that transported Guests around Frontierland from 1956 to 1977.
