Key informationUser rating:
The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train roller coaster forms part of a major expansion of the Magic Kingdom's Fantasyland that was completed in 2014.
The coaster takes guests on a musical ride deep into a diamond mine. It features a first-of-its-kind ride system that allows the vehicles to swing back and forth as they move along the twisting track, accompanied by tunes from "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs".
The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train was manufactured by Vekoma (a favorite of Disney, responsible for nearly all of its modern steel roller coaster work) and features both indoor and outdoor sections. The ride sits somewhere between Barnstormer and Big Thunder Mountain in terms of thrills.

Reviews of Seven Dwarfs Mine Train:
Lovers of the tamer style of coaster, and Walt Disney's first ever animated feature length movie are sure to adore this ride. First of all the queue itself is a work of art due to all the little things Disney have added to make the experience more positive and keep the kids...and big kids entertained. There are 3 main components to the queue, a gem style touch screen game in water troughs, musical and colourful water spouts and some twirling barrels where the faster you spin the more characters you will get to see. After all this fun its ready to board the ride. Sitting at the back is preferable for those who like to go fast. It was a very different experience to being near the front. It felt not only faster, but the mine cart also swings out more. This is one of the new amazing features that makes going around a corner even more exhilarating! I love this ride, it is so unique and the slow part in the middle ith all of the animatronic dwarves is so colourful and magical.
