Looking At The Design And Technology Of The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train

r-1399082713-SevenDwarfsMineTrain57So today is the day that The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train offi­cially opens in the Magic Kingdom. A cause for great excite­ment amongst Disney Theme Park fans and marking the final comple­tion of the New Fanta­sy­land project after approx­i­mately 1 billion years (it’s possible I’m exag­ger­ating slightly).

All of which is pretty cool in itself. But if, like me, you find the behind the scenes of making these rides inter­esting then you should check out the article by Jim Hill on some of the tech­nology and design choices behind the anima­tronic elements of the ride.

I think it’s possible that Disney may have managed to build a roller-coaster that even I will get on.
