This topic is for Discussion of Latest: Video: New Seven Dwarfs Mine Train Computer Simulation

At tonight's media event for the Magic Kingdom's New Fantasyland, Disney showed a new video showing a computer simulation of a partial ride-through of the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, opening in 2014. Check it out!

Is that it?

Hopefully there will be more to it when the ride is completed.

Of course there will be more. The clip showed 41 seconds of on-ride footage.

I would hope there are at least several more indoor scenes, and that the animatronics have better movement than the "head nod, arm swing" of those dwarf mannequins in this video.

Watching the video, I was kind of reminded of a Seven Dwarves version of the Calico Mine Train at Knott's Berry Farm. And that's not really a good thing.

I wouldn't expect much more than 41 secs of ride time.

ORDDU: My sisters and I have been under the impression, all along, that there would only be one show scene for this attraction. That's one of the reasons Orwen spent so much time protesting the closure of the Snow White dark ride. None of us wanted anything like a glorified Goofy's Barnstormer. It's just not worth the effort.

The whole ride is supposed to be in the 2.5 min ballpark. With lift hills and slow show scenes. 41 secs is about all the time you will get at full speed.

Witches, I believe that we are getting 2 show scenes. One in the mine and one in the cottage.

Well, if I was trying to generate excitement for something then I'm not sure releasing this video is the approach I would take.
