    Mine tunnel being worked on

    The old mine train tunnel un Frontierland is being worked on! It was damaged a couple years ago during a storm when a tree fell on part of it and has been covered up by a green net ever since. I'm not sure how long they've been working on it again. Anybody know what they're doing to it? Just restoring it back the way it was?

    That's great to hear! I assume they are restoring it back to the way it looked before the storm.

    Anyone have any pics of what it looked like before the tree fell and damaged it?

    Nah - It'll have either some Jack Sparrow AA's or some Pixar character promotions.

    They already did that, just around the ride though.

    The ones they didn't use in the Big Thunder attraction are buried under the Big Thunder Ranch (by the old BBQ).

    It makes sense that they would be restoring the attraction.(with the exception of fixing/removing a safety hazard that a cast member might get hurt on) it seems otherwise like a waste of time to restore the cave/entrance only to have it sit there.

    I saw that Tuesday when I was at the park last.
    I predict pirate shenanigans to be placed there. I could be wrong, but I have a sinking feeling about it...
