Seven Dwarfs Mine Train attraction brings state of the art tech to attractions

Posted Monday, June 2, 2014 9:27 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Tourists crowding onto Walt Disney World's new Seven Dwarfs Mine Train attraction this week in Florida got a glimpse of a new direction for theme parks looking to upgrade old technology. In place of old attractions, Disney built the mine train, an entirely new ride system that combines elements of a roller coaster and the classic themed dark rides, with audio-animatronic figures considered the most lifelike in the industry.

Where is the review Jeff? I want to know if it is worth a wait or not.

You act like I live next door to Magic Kingdom or something (as I see the flashes from Wishes reflect off of my window). Haven't been over there in awhile, but we did get some Fastpasses for it in two or three weeks.

I very much enjoyed the coaster (it was open for the 24-hour event). We waited around 45-50 minutes, but it went by very quickly. Disney's efforts to make queues more enjoyable seem to be paying off, and SDMT was no exception.

It's a rather mild ride, as I think most were expecting, but it's a good time. It's like a super Big Thunder Mountain Railroad from my perspective, and the animatronics were very cool. It'll definitely be a staple of my visits to the park.
