I was taught "The Goat Trick" many years ago by some kids as me and my wife waited in line for Big Thunder Mountain.
To do the Goat Trick, request the rear train car.
As the train goes up the big hill (the one with the little tortoises) and gets to the top, you will see a goat chewing on a stick of dynamite.
The minute you see the goat... KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE GOAT!
As you go around the curve, you will feel like you are going TWICE AS FAST - the optical illusion makes everything feel breathtakingly fast!
On your next trip to Disneyland, remember to KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE GOAT!!
