    Whats inside of Grizzly Peak?

    Anyone been inside it? Saw this posted in Wikipedia...
    It was recently considered to use the mountain as a possible location for a new Country Bear Jamboree theatre and a gold rush themed mining train adventure, although the mountain's infastructure did not allow for this to be feasible.

    Re: Whats inside of Grizzly Peak?

    I've wondered the same myself. I have a timelapse video of it being built somewhere. Don't remember if it's a solid structure (I doubt it) or if it's primarily hollow. I imagine something can be in there... I think... but sheesh, I really don't know haha

    The ride cuts through sections of it. It would be hard to fit something else in there i imagine.

    good question, i have no idea but it would have been so cool if they put CBJ or a mine ride in there. Hopefully disney could pull it off in the future

    Grizzly River Rapids goes through it, or are you talking about something else?

    Re: Whats inside of Grizzly Peak?

    in line for california screaming sometime in february, i was talking to a gentleman who told me worked for the construction company for DCA 1.0 as a dirt hauler. He said that while being built, the framing for the peak looked more like how you build an office building, with levels, and then the rock work was laid on the outside. so i am pretty sure it is hollow, tho he reckoned there might be some secret offices or rooms by the way it was built. He was a funny man, though i highly doubt there is anything in it.

    Consider that most of its height is the Grizzly and that doesn't contain much volume. Most of it's girth is the sprawling flume. There is a space under the flume on the north east part that could fit something inside it. Not an E ticket like HM or IJ, but maybe a Fantasyland dark ride. I would guess it's full of framing and no void exists.

    You can see some of it being built in this video, but mostly GRR from a view looking east. GRR is featured at about 1:45.

    Re: Whats inside of Grizzly Peak?

    besides the steel, rebar, and concrete, it's pretty hollow on the inside. i've taken a tour inside the mountain. it's quite a high ceiling, just space and a few stairwells. but it doesn't look big enough for a theater, at least from what i remember. i went inside the mountain back in 2008. apparently our tour guide (an imagineer) told us that the concrete is so strong that you can take the steel away and the mountain could hold itself up.

    It's hollow inside, pretty much what flickering bulb described. There is one room inside the mountain that I'd guess is 20 by 15 feet big. We don't know what it's used for other than being creepy to go through during opening procedures.

    It's not unlike the non-ride portion of the Matterhorn, then, which makes sense.

    Or the other half of the one in the Matterhorn?

    I'm sure that the concrete rockwork could hold itself up without the steel frame and rebar (or mesh or whatever internal reinforcement is used), although I doubt that it could stand up to a decent earthquake.
