Attractions Magazine uploaded a video showing the cars for the Seven Dwarf's Mine Train and how they will swing.

LOVE IT! Those cars looks awesome... totally fit into the theme and are themed VERY well! Also this looks kinda fun... a bit gimmicky, but pretty fun looking overall! Very impressed actually... especially considering my expectations were relatively low for this for some reason. :mickey:

That looks pretty sweet! It will be a nice addition to the MK.

I love how they were testing it out in the back of the pick-up truck... that looked like it was fun.

Looks like the coaster has a pretty substantial layout as well. Gotta love getting a new coaster AND dark ride at the Magic Kingdom all in one package!

This looks really cool. More of a mini Big Thunder which is totally awesome. I figured it would just be like a standard roller-skater with the new cars. But the amount of themeing on this looks impressive and will be a much needed addition to the park.

The problem that I thought of Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is Magic Kingdom would have 2 mine train coasters. After that video, it seems Disney did a lot to make it different from Big Thunder and I'm impressed.

Awesome. The vehicles remind me, vaguely, of the Katoomba Orphan Rocker (Never opened, presumed defunct by now) and it's high- pivot suspension cars. I'm glad to see Disney is investing in perfecting this technology- as I think it will be something smaller/mid-sized parks would be interested in for a thrilling coaster that can do so much more in the future.

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

I was thinking the same thing. Hopefully this doesnt have the same problems "the bat" did with unbanked track.

Hi everyone! I can't find any "Hollywood Studios Discussion thread"s, so I came here.

Two questions about tower of terror;

Does it still run random drop sequences?

Is it true that the fifth dimension room has been diminished to a dark hallway?
