    Post Most Expensive Ride/Attraction

    What do you think the most expensice Disney World Ride/Attraction and why?

    I think it is The Tower of Terror because of the random drop cycles, plus its movement and housing.

    I think Rockin' Roller Coaster because it has a linear induction motor which must cost a lot to run, the electric bill must be very high because of all the lights, the 128 speakers (not to mention the speakers and subwoofers under and around each seat in all five cars).

    Mission Space and Test Track have to be up there.

    I think I remember hearing somewhere that Everest cost $100 mil. to build.

    I'm sure Lou knows this one. I'm going to assume that the most expensive attraction is going to be one that uses new technology or is just plain HUGE. So, my vote is for either Mission:Space (not really new technology, but new to a theme park) or Expedition Everest.
    I believe in Happily Ever Afters.

    I would guess at Test Track. Because of the computers systems in each of the ride vehicles.



    You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.

    I would guess Rockin' Roller Coaster or Expedition Everest because of their complicated systems. For example, all of the Speakers in RnRCand then the audioanamatronic Yeti in EE.
