Attractions such as the Haunted Mansion, “it’s a small world,” Peter Pan’s Flight, Pirates of the Caribbean, and more can be found at the Disney Park. But Magic Kingdom isn’t just home to dark rides, classic thrill rides can also be found all over the theme park.

Big Thunder Mountain, Space Mountain, the recently closed Splash Mountain (which will reopen as Tiana’s Bayou Adventure), and the more recent instant classic, the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, can also be found throughout the Disney Park.

However, two of these attractions closed at the same time on February 23, leaving only one thrill ride in the entire Park.

Around midday (the busiest time of the day for a Disney Park), the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train went down and was listed as ‘Temporarily Unavailable’ on the Walt Disney World mobile app.

At the same time, Frontierland’s only operating thrill ride, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, was also listed as ‘Temporarily Unavailable.’
