Described as a combination dark ride and family coaster, Disney’s Seven Dwarfs Mine Train will open later this spring. It’s the final part of the New Fantasyland expansion.

Testing of some of the trains has been underway. According to Disney officials the trains will provide a smooth ride with the sensation of rocking back and forth; riders will also detect the differences in terrain around them.

Imagineers have released details of the train’s big drop, which takes place once the train leaves interior mine area. That’s the “dark” side of the ride where guests can watch the dwarfs hard at work and search for hidden items.

WESH provides images of the attraction as it’s being built.
