Anyone know exactly how much of this is dark ride? My impression is the coaster goes through one or two scenes. Probably one of them being in the climb before a big drop.

It should be operating by June of next year. It is scheduled to open "early" 2014 and they are trying hard to open late 2013.

I'm hoping there will be soft openings during MVMCP in November. DW and I got to do a soft opening during MNSSHP and we felt like celebrities. Anyone think that early November is being unrealistic for this hope? Will this ride be for all ages/heights?

Looking at how much work is left to be done and the pace they have been working at I would say there is no way it would soft open in early November, that is only 2 1/2 - 3 months away.

My husband had also read somewhere for potential soft opening in December. Theres obviously no confirmation, but my fingers are crossed since we'll be there then.

I haven't seen anything official on this. I have read that they want to keep the height requirements as low as possible, but there will be some height requirements.

We're going to be there in April 2014... Our hope too that it will be open by then...

This does change (and make more complicated) the early morning 1 day in MK plan. So do I ride Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Mine Train, or Big Thunder first? And which 2nd?

Sigh... Disney, yet another way you are keeping us on property for longer and longer...
