With the grand opening of Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway next week on March 4, we’re eager to walk inside the Chinese Theatre once again and see Mickey, Minnie, and the gang take off on their zany adventures aboard the Runnamuck Railway, where “mouse rules apply.”
With Cast Previews underway, new sneak peeks from inside the attraction are beginning to surface, and now we have a first look at the Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, thanks to our friends at MouseSteps.
In the queue, we see the newly-restored interior of the Chinese Theatre, now lined with Mickey Mouse shorts posters. You’ll see posters from such popular shorts as “Potatoland”, “Wonders of the Deep”, and “Perfect Picnic”, which follows the story of the attraction.
Upon boarding, the train cars hold two rows of 3-4 passengers each aboard the Runnamuck Railroad. Throughout the landscapes seen on the background here, you see moving characters and cars, enhancing the “2 and 1⁄2 D” effect.
Here’s a look at Conductor Goofy, as well as Mickey and Minnie:
You’ll notice that as the train progresses, while there are train tracks visible on the bottom, the surface is smooth due to the lack of any ride tracks.
