Talk about coasting under the radar! Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Cars at Hong Kong Disneyland isn’t expected to officially open until July 13, 2012, but technical rehearsals of the new coaster have given us a glimpse of the ride experience.

Impressive, huh? Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Cars does not seem to disappoint, at least on video.
I see Big Grizzly Mountain as a “Big Thunder Mountain meets Expedition Everest” coaster. That doesn’t even take into account the surprise launch at the end. The special effects such as the snapping cable and reverse free fall down the lift hill are some of the standout features of this coaster, and should really help in making Hong Kong Disneyland a top-notch Disney park.
