    Will we be saying goodbye to the goat trick?

    With the addition of a new track to Big Thunder Mountain it got me thinking, will the new track change the physics of the ride so the goat trick no longer works. It's a possibility isn't it, its not like the Imagineers would take that into consideration, right! Am I going out on a limb here or is this a justifiable concern?

    From what I understand the track layout is exactly the same as before, they are just putting in new track. Its just like the space mountain re due. I think we will be able to do the goat trick for years to come unless they remove the goat.

    Add to that, they have a clip of the track being installed, and the goat is still there.
    If you see a cute yellow lab puppy with a yellow cape, WAVE! It might be us! (Or it may be someone else that lurks here!) Thank you for asking before you pet! Next trip, Dec 22-Jan 3rd.

    If only the goat could do tricks, I'd ride it all day...

    Now I feel like I'm left out of the party...I have never heard of the goat trick before. May I ask what this is?

    Alice, the goat trick is keeping your eye on the goat as you round the corner. Keep your head focused and looking at the goat as the train moves. Its cool.

    I find that it can work on space mountain too, after the drop, when you turn focus on something as in turns, its dizzying
