Disney releases new CGI ride-through of Seven Dwarfs Mine Train

The latest ride at Walt Disney World is still a few weeks out, but fans can get a feel of what the upcoming Seven Dwarfs Mine Train attraction will be like from a CGI "ride-through" released by Walt Disney Parks Tuesday. 

According to the official Disney Parks Blog, the new video comes from the Yellow Shoes Creative Group, a team that is currently working on an advertising campaign for the new roller coaster, which will debut at Fantasyland inside Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom in the coming weeks.

On Feb. 24, Walt Disney Imagineering released a new onboard video for the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, which featured a side-by-side comparison of the actual ride and the original CGI point-of-view animation before work started on the attraction.

The latest CGI version is a more detailed and colorful look at what future riders might expect their first time onboard the new ride. Although, at just 15 seconds, it is a very brief glimpse at what's to come. 

The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train will tell the story of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” from the perspective of the dwarfs, taking riders on an indoor-and-outdoor trip, with side-to-side swaying cars.

Disney officials have said that the intensity of the coaster will be between that of sister Magic Kingdom coasters Barnstormer and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. 

The ride has been completed in stages since 2012 and it has previously been announced that the new attraction will open spring 2014, but at this time an official launch date has not been released.
