BGMRMC was an amazing ride. Not super fast, not super tall, no inversions but it doesn't need those things maxed out. It's a great combination of elements put together along with a great theme and excellent use of landscaping and everything together creates this example of a world class ride!
Would love to go back to ride again (not that I didn't get a ton of rides in whilst we were there!)

I got to ride it late at night (Sat) at the end of the TPR China Tour, and the lighting on it and around it all was very cool. It was dark enough in most spots just enough to be spooky, and all the lighting effects inside the caves and such worked even better, IMhO.
Very nice lighting of Grizzly Gulch on my Sat.night (Sept.29) visit.
I really love this ride. That backwards lift system implemented into a full circuit coaster that can operate four trains simultaneously is truly genius. While the rock work isn't quite as "immense" or "encompassing" as the other Big Thunders, the more minimalistic rock work and micro detailing makes this ride just as, or even more impressive.
One thing I noticed that was a bit interesting was the fact that the track was accessible to maintenance at every point in the layout. There's a path next to the ride at all times...

It's those damn bear's fault. HKDL Imagineers couldn't be as dilligent with them around.
