Opening date set for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train roller coaster at Disney
Updated On: May 02 2014 08:42:17 AM EDT
The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train came to life on Thursday night as part of Disney's New Fantasyland expansion.
The family-style coaster is the last piece of the expansion, which is set to open later in the spring, at the Magic Kingdom. Construction on Fantasyland started in 2010.
Local 6 got a sneak peek at the ride on Thursday, and Disney officials announced Friday morning that the roller coaster will officially open May 28.
Disney said the ride features first-of-its-kind ride vehicles mounted in cradle-like pivots that allow the vehicles to swing back and forth during the twists and turns of the ride.
The five-car train has a cart that moves alone through the mine, hills and Snow White's cottage.
Riders will be kept busy during the wait with interactive games, like playing with jewels like the miners.
