Update: Imagineers Complete Drop Test of Disney’s Seven Dwarf Mine Train Car

SevenDwarfsMineTrainRideConstruction5We recently shared news with you that Disney Imagineers were excited to announce that they’d placed the first ride car from the new Seven Dwarf Mine Train on the track to begin push/pull testing. This process means that the Imagineers actually walk the ride vehicle through the attraction, pushing and/or pulling it along the track as they go. Then at the beginning of this week, Imagineers and Design & Engineering marked another milestone in the construction process as the first time the car completed its first drop test. This means the train ran under its own gravity and completed its first drop out of the station.

Completion of Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, as the final piece of New Fantasyland is expected to debut in early 2014. Disney fans are speculating that it will most likely be in time for the big Spring Break crowds, although Disney has not confirmed an official opening date at this time. Are you as excited as we are for this new dark ride coaster to open next year? Stay tuned for more updates as they become available!
