Seven Dwarf Mine Train Ride...what will the experience be!?

March 13, 2014, 10:46 AM

The more I see video of this ride actually running I feel like it will be rather similar to the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad ride. Do you guys agree?

Also While the ride may not look particularly extreme, will the swinging bucks make turns feel more dramatic than they actually are. I'm thinking so, but what do you guys think?

While it seems to be a beautiful attraction, I believe it will be very short and not in league with Big Thunder Mountain, a real E ticket ride. From all reports, the Dwarf Coaster is going to be less than 90 seconds long with only one "significant" tunnel show scene.

Way to bum me out man...hahaha

From all reports, for families with small children (also known as the attraction's target demographic) it is going to be a real E ticket ride.

So, according to what Rob Pastor is saying, the ride experience may come up a little short for adults? Man, I am not going to be Happy about that...perhaps a little Grumpy probably.

Tim: I think it will still be a fun experience since the setting is really beautiful. And the significant scene, while short like the ride, should be memorable. But, as I said in a different 7 Dwarfs discussion(in Coach Bill Cowher's words), it is what it is, namely, a Fantasyland level kid/family ride. But to expect a Thunder Mountain or Splash Mountain level ride would just be asking for a major letdown. I think I would be looking more forward to it if it was a slow moving outdoor omnimover type design, then it wouldn't be so darn short in ride time.

I hope the ride is longer than 90 seconds.

Rob, I think I speak for Tim when I say I'm disappointed in you and your analysis of his response. Perhaps a re-read would be the best course of action. :)

I think I may not have worded that well. I understand Tim's humorous innuendo of the ride being "short" on thrills for adults and agree with him. I was just trying to say that I will probably enjoy the ride in its capacity as a kids/family ride. I just didn't want to sound too negative about the attraction. I'm happy anytime Disney builds something new. If I came across as critical of Tim's response, I apologize. I didn't mean it as such.

No offense taken and no apology needed, Rob. I was feeling a little Dopey when I posted my comment.

Pretty good...LOL

Basky, you are right in a way. It's BTM on a lower and more kid- friendly scale. The swaying adds to the low intensity. All I care about is how high will be the longest drop :).
