Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is a steel roller coaster. The ride travels both indoors and outdoors. Unlike some other Disney roller coasters, including California Screamin' and Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith, this attraction is less intense and more family-friendly. It features a new ride system by Vekoma which simulates the swaying and tipping one would expect to experience riding in a mine cart, but not so much that it would scare guests. The cottage is located near the mines rather than away from them like in the movie. The ride starts from the station as we ride a turn to the left and up. We see two vultures from the movie on a crane. We have a few drops and then enter the diamond mine where a million diamonds shine. We see the most advanced audio animatronics in the world. Then we go up and we see the shadows of the dwarfs from the movie on the wall. Then a few other drops and we see the cottage where Snow white and the seven dwarfs are dancing and singing together, but by the window we see an uninvited visitor.
