Mapping Monday - Big Thunder Mountain

With my friend Dex doing a Disney trip recently, I found myself looking around the Intrawebs for anything Disney that might be gamer-adjacent.


That's when I stumbled onto Big Thunder Mountain which exists as a Disney thing in a number of places.  According to Wikipedia:
Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is an indoor/outdoor mine train roller coaster located in Frontierland at several Disneyland-style Disney Parks worldwide. The ride exists at Disneyland Park (California) and the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World as Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, and at Tokyo Disneyland and Disneyland Park (Paris) as Big Thunder Mountain. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is also the name of the fictional rail line the roller coaster depicts.

It looks like a pretty cool setting for fun and over on disneyatwork.com they detail it a bit more here.


But what does this have to do with gamers?  And why post about it on Mapping Monday?  Well, if you followed the last link, you saw a smaller version of this map I found which graces the location and shows it in all its glory.  Snag this for your own games and, I think, it can be used in multiple genres though, obviously, it is ready-made for a Western game.

Cartography and Mapping are the order of the day,
from setting maps to battlemaps, it's all good.
