http://twitter.com/INTERCOT/status/4...913472/photo/1 This shows a media opening of the ride is going to take place April 30-May 2. This would then suggest a grand opening sometime in early May. Also this would meet the former spring 2014 opening time they were aiming for. No word on any soft openings as of right now.

For the rest of Fantasyland there were soft opening at least a month before the press day and official opening, so it's very possible we will see softs of the Mine Ride sometime in March.

I will be there April 28th to May 2nd, does this mean my chances are good that I'll be able to ride it?? That'd be so cool to be one of the first people on the ride!

I was just there and it didn't look anywhere near done yet. I guess a lot can happen in a couple of months but I wouldn't expect anything in March.

There is video on FB of the trains being tested with sand bags in them so March sounds about right.

well they just took part of the walls down they have been doing a lot of detailing work as of late and really the most work left is the queue area. The cars run on the track almost daily.

Interesting. As of my Feb trip, there were still plenty of walls up and they were working on the mountain itself. Looking through the little window, the track area looked very bare - like there was a lot of finishing work yet to be done. Anything is possible I guess. I'm just glad it will definitely be done and well tested by my next trip.

go look at some of the pictures from the when the walls were being taken down. It looks very well detailed.

Sure hope so, we'll be there the first of April. I'd be very excited if they are having a soft opening by then.
