The story behind Big Thunder Mountain is that greedy gold prospectors where plundering the hills of Wyoming's "Big Thunder Mountain," which at one time was sacred Indian burial ground. An ancient Indian legend warned of disaster if anyone tried to remove gold from the mountain. Ignoring the warning, the miners took the train down into the deep mines, where Indian spirits took control of the mine cars and spun it out of control. The miners were never heard from again. Some time later, an earthquake destroyed most of the mine, and as the disasters continued, the miners and visitors to the town of Tumbleweed quickly vanished. Now, only a few residents remain, but the legend of Big Thunder lives on.
