LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -

The Big Thunder Mountain Railroad has reopened at the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World after receiving some upgrades.

Disney calls the roller coaster the "wildest ride in the wilderness," and over the last five months, it's apparently become wilder.

Crews have widened the ride, adding new scenery and features, including lights.
