Even the massive entrance to the land serves as a prologue to the story that's being told about the town with bones hidden in the bushes and bear tracks all over the floor.

    I really would rank Grizzly Gulch above the other Frontierlands if it didn't just have one ride. As for the ride itself, it's not tame at all. The blast from the dynamite cave is more intense than it looks and the drops here are faster, longer and bigger than those of Big Thunder Mountain. Its miles away from the ferocity of Expedition Everest so it can be considered a family ride - though I'm not sure if every kid can handle it. And Im quite sure its much more intense than the Snow White coaster. Hope that answers your questions.
    Alright cool because I just watched the video of it and thought it was a fun ride. Nothing too intense but still a great ride that the whole family can enjoy. It really did capture the essence of Thunder Mountain but with a better/clearer storyline.

    I was thinking it would be great if Disney used the same track layout and put in Animal Kingdom to finally build the Ecavator roller coaster in DinoLand taking over Chester and Hesters. It would be great if it were themed to a dig sit and the carts that carry fossils out. I was just wondering if it would be too similar to Everest but I think it could be different enough and providing a more thrilling ride for people who are not ready for the intensity of Everest.

    ORDDU: I'm not so certain this could be considered a ride for the whole family, myself. I know my sisters and I couldn't handle it because of the sudden blast of what you ducklings refer to as 'G' forces. When we fly our broom sticks back and forth from Morva to your world, it's a gentle fly over with no sudden blast offs such as Grizzly mine train reportedly has. Little children might be terrified of it, as well. So it's a ride with limitations. Still, we think it's a good addition to this little park that started off so small.
