    Basically when you come up the crest on Lift B where the goat is normally at, you stare directly at the goat without moving your head as you go down the turn.

    It's a neat, fun, and slightly disorienting feeling that you'll get from it.

    You can still do it without the goat (just stare at the rock that it normally stands on), but the goat is easier to focus on and it more of a landmark for people to know what to look at.

    Re: Goat on Big Thunder Mountain

    I didn't check today (since I was only there for like two hours) but I don't think the goat is back as of today... so yah, focus on what the goat would be normally standing on (I think it's either a rock or a barrel, I can't remember offhand) as you go down the turn.

    Have fun on Monday!

    Slightly disorienting? You're doing it wrong, then. Turn your whole upper body toward the goat (or rock, these days) and focus intently on him/it through the entire turn and keep looking in that direction for the full duration of the turn. You'll get the full brunt of the effect if you keep looking at him for longer than seems "right." Just keep looking at him for as long as you can, all the way until you can't see him anymore. You almost get tunnel vision. It's great! Makes me giggle like a little boy every time.

    I went on BTMRR for the first time yesterday and I was looking for the goat the whole time so I was surprised not to see him.

    The goat is being re-skinned, and as of today is still in the Animations Department being worked on.

    Thanks for the info SparkyLD and thanks for your self restraint mousechild. Don't think I could have stomached that one.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    Stalking is when two people go for a long romantic walk together but only one of them knows about it.
