Walt Disney World has released a new video offering a glimpse inside the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, the unique new roller coaster that will debut at the Magic Kingdom in spring 2014.
The video, embedded below, features brief looks inside the diamond mine that is worked by the Seven Dwarfs, as well as the under-construction Snow White's cottage. It also shows off the ride's unusual vehicles, which will swing from side-to-side as they round the corners of the coaster's circuit.
New, computer-generated artwork for the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train has also been released, and is embedded below:
Finally, Walt Disney World has also posted a new description of the ride, which offers some hints as to what the ride experience will be like:
The lovable world of Sleepy, Doc, Grumpy, Bashful, Sneezy, Happy and Dopey comes to life in spring 2014 when the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train takes New Fantasyland guests on a rollicking, musical ride into the mine “where a million diamonds shine.” Inspired by the 1937 Disney animated film classic “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” the fun starts as guests cross a stone bridge and walk through a beautiful forest with the Dwarfs’ cottage in the distance, leading to the entrance to the attraction — and immersion into the endearing story of the radiant and kindhearted Snow White and her forest friends led by the lovable Dwarfs.
After passing through an interactive pre-show area with fun activities themed to mining, guests will proceed to the mine train. Just like the iconic movie, surprises are in store! The family-style coaster will feature first-of-its-kind ride vehicles mounted in cradle-like pivots that allow the vehicles to swing back and forth during the ride. Adding to the fun, the journey will be accompanied by beloved music from the film classic and there’s a cast of animated figures of Snow White, the Seven Dwarfs and playful forest critters.
