When it comes to Disney ride evacuations, ensuring the safety and well-being of guests is always a top priority. Evacuations may occur for various reasons, such as technical issues, weather conditions, or other unforeseen circumstances. During an evacuation, Disney Cast Members are trained to guide guests calmly and efficiently to designated safe zones.

In the event of a Disney ride evacuation, guests can expect clear instructions from Cast Members on how to safely exit the attraction. These procedures are in place to ensure a smooth and organized process, prioritizing the safety of all individuals involved. Additionally, Disney utilizes advanced technology and communication systems to swiftly address any evacuation needs and coordinate efforts effectively.

However, not all ride evacuations are as calm and collected as fans may expect. For visitors at Disneyland Resort earlier this week, an emergency evacuation created quite a scene at one popular attraction, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.

A Disappointing Turn of Events

Many guests were left feeling incredibly disappointed after a recent ride on Big Thunder Mountain Railroad ended in disaster. On 5/29, guests reported that the ride and its entire queue were evacuated. Flashing lights and sirens went off as security guests stormed the ride.

“Big thunder mountain emergency evacuation

Around 9:15-9:30 today on 5/29, there was an emergency evacuation with lights flashing inside the tunnels and everyone was immediately kicked out of line. As we were walking out, 4 security guards came rushing into the attraction. Does anyone know what went down? Just curious”

While the nature of the emergency is unknown, it does seem that it may have been serious if the entire line needed to be evacuated. Some guests predict it may have been unruly guest behavior or a list item on the tracks.

For now, the nature of this shutdown will remain a mystery. Ride shutdowns like this can be devastating, and we hope that all affected fans are about to make the most of the rest of their day despite the unfortunate circumstances at Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.
