All the Walls are Down at Seven Dwarfs Mine Train – April Construction Update #3

SDMT-11-850w

All the Walls are Down at Seven Dwarfs Mine Train giving us our best view yet of the queue area, and finally revealing all the exterior track on the roller coaster. Sounds like a good excuse for our third update this April.

There was still quite a bit of finishing and touch up work going on. Among some painting and landscaping, Imagineers were tinkering with the new interactive queue elements and the ubiquitous on-ride photo was being installed while we were there. Cast members are telling guests it will open sometime next month. However, media have been invited for a ribbon cutting ceremony to be held on May 2nd. Everything is subject to change, of course.

There are a few elements around the track that have me worried. It looks like they’ve jury-rigged evacuation lighting around part of the track. They might have to make that more permanent before it can open to guests. But the good news is they have been testing the coaster with people, and even filmed a commercial recently.

Here’s some video taken of newly opened areas:

I hope they’re able to open it soon, it looks amazing. Head below the jump for a huge gallery of photos of the newly exposed areas.

There are so many amazing details elements, I could have added another 30 pictures, but I’ll save some for later. What are you looking forward to most about experiencing Seven Dwarfs Mine Train for the first time?

  2. I’m probably looking past a way to do this, just not seeing it, but is there a way to view the gallery of images as a slideshow?
