Description And Comments

It may be a bit late to the party, but the last piece of the New Fantasyland puzzle is finally in place. Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is a family friendly roller coaster that brings guests in to the gem mines of the Seven Dwarfs. The stand-out feature of the attraction is the ride's unique mine car trains that swing back and forth as they make their way through the mines. Although it is a roller coaster, the ride features some traditional Disney dark ride elements, as well as the typical drops and banked turns found in other coasters. Disney describes the ride as somewhere between The Barnstormer and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad in terms of thrill. A height requirement of 38 inches also reflects this (Barnstormer is 35 inches, Big Thunder's is 40 inches). Disney's own website lists the “thrill level” as “Dark, Loud, Scary, Small Drops, Thrill Ride.”

The queue includes interactive elements where guests are invited to sort and wash jewels from the mine. Also, guests get to enter the Dwarfs’ vault that’s seen in the movie. A song called “Music in Your Soup” is played in the queue area. The song was originally written for the Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs film but was not used. The three sections of the ride's queue include the Seven Dwarfs' cottage, the diamond mine, and the vault.

The ride itself starts out by boarding a mine car. From there the tracks winds down and around outside of the mountain before heading up a steep lift hill. Some broken track is visible near the peak, as are two ominous vultures perched atop a crane (the vultures are reused from the former Snow White’s Scary Adventure attraction). At this point you’ll hear the instantly recognizable “Heigh Ho” song being sung from inside the mountain. From there, the cart careens over the crest, down and around the mountain, and inside the mine shaft.

Once inside the mine, riders see all seven of the Seven Dwarfs, who are collecting the jewels. The mine carts will then head outside once again and hit another lift hill. At the top of the hill, will catch nice views of New Fantasyland and its surrounding landscape. After the drop, guests will then pass behind a waterfall, and ride past a cottage where Snow White and the Dwarfs are dancing.

Carrion Some Things Over

See those two vultures perched high atop the jib crane near the entrance to Seven Dwarfs Mine Train? They spend decades frightening tourists inside Snow White's Scary Adventures. When Disney's Imagineers were looking for ways to connect that dark ride--an original Magic Kingdom attraction--with the new coaster, they decided to give the dwarfs the bird (or birds in this case).
