Learning Center

Hang on tight for the “wildest ride in the wilderness!” During this western-themed workshop, we will celebrate the 45th anniversary of Disneyland’s Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and look at the making of this beloved attraction. Mine your way through animation history as we uncover how animators have depicted trains and roller coasters alike. Then, using anticipation and traditional hand-drawn techniques, create a train taking off and dipping into a cavern below!
