The Mountains of Magic Kingdom - 24 Facts & Secrets

24 - Big Thunder Mountain isn’t actually just made of rock.

It might look like a huge rock mountain, but there is so much more than makes up the structure and foundation for the “rock” mountain.  Big Thunder Mountain was actually created with 6,500 tons of steel, 90,000 gallons of water, 4,675 tons of the mud that was created to coat the structure and 4,000 gallons of paint that gives it the brownish, orange color that we see today with perfect details in the painting job.
