Disney's New Roller Coaster Revealed In POV Video Of Seven Dwarfs Mine Train Ride

Walt Disney World's newest roller coaster is opening in the Magic Kingdom later this spring, but you can ride it right now in this first-person POV video released by the company on Wednesday.

The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train features new audio animatronic characters that use computer graphics to give them a full range of facial expressions.

A video released by the company on Tuesday shows the effect up close.

The new coaster is being billed as a family ride with a height requirement of just 38 inches, or just a tad higher than the 35-inch requirement for the Barnstormer, the park's "kiddie" coaster.

Disney hasn't announced an opening date for the Mine Train yet, but it won't be the only new ride in the Orlando area this summer. Universal Studios is preparing to expand "The Wizarding World of Harry Potter" to include a recreation of Diagon Alley as well as rides based on Gringotts Bank and the Hogwarts Express.

Looks like it's a good time to be a fan of theme parks.
