    Construction of the actual mountain began right before I got there in November last year. (My picture in the photo contest going on right now shows the very first step.) Right now, the mountain is basically complete, the city is about to be built and the ride track doesn't have much left to it. The ride is called Expedition Everest and can be seen from way outside of the Animal Kingdom, it's just plain HUGE! It is opening in the Spring of 2006, so start booking your trips to be one of the first to ride it.

    The ride is called Expedition Everest and is roller coaster ride. It will simulate a train ride that "gets Loose" coming down Mount Everest.

    I have included some pictures of it in my Photo Gallery taken in October.

    And don't forget the 15-20 foot yeti that chases you down the mountain too. And also, there is a part where the track switches and you go backwards for a little bit.

    I can't wait for this ride to open! It should be awesome! I did not know about the yeti or that it goes backwards for a little while - they both sound very cool.
