Walt Disney World fans will be excited to ride its newest ride, opening in Orlando, Florida, on May 28, 2014: Mine Train.

I was invited to test ride Mine Train and I was excited to see how much detail went into the ride. Mine Train will thrill both roller coaster enthusiasts as well as those who don’t normally love roller coasters. It has enough dips and turns at high speeds for more seasoned riders to feel like it’s a bona fide roller coaster while the younger set (or more fearful) won’t be too scared out of their minds. If I had to compare the ride, I’d say it’s close to Big Thunder Mountain Railroad located in Magic Kingdom.

In addition to having the opportunity to test drive Mine Train, several of us had the chance to test drive a Chevy Camaro and use the OnStar capabilities. Want to see how OnStar works? Check out the short video I produced during our test drive.

Mine Train is located in Disney’s New Fantasyland also in Magic Kingdom. Practice your whistling so you can join the characters as the thrill ride takes you through a beautiful visual storytelling of the popular Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs story.
