The Big Thunder Mountain Railroad roller coaster ride takes Disney’s Magic Kingdom visitors through an abandoned gold mining town aboard a speeding mine train. Now, families can revisit the beloved attraction in Funko Games’ Big Thunder Mountain Railroad Game.

Recommended for kids ages 9 and up, this strategy game takes 2-4 players through the cursed mining town of Tumbleweed and into the haunted gold mine. With their trusty mine cart, each player can dig or pan the mine for gold and then spend their treasure on helpful mining upgrades.

Taking turns, each player can rotate the mountain and dispense three marbles into the mine shafts below. Then, they can play any number of supply cards currently in their hand. The game continues until any player reaches 20 points, with each game lasting approximately 45 minutes. Each player can then sell their leftover gold and count their money total with their bank and hotel share cards. Whoever has the most points at the end of the game wins!
