    New York To Get Peek At Disney World Ride

    January 22, 2006
    Combined Wired Services

    A new ride called Expedition Everest is opening at Disney World's Animal Kingdom in Orlando in April, but New Yorkers will get a peek at the excitement when Disney brings a preview to Times Square next month.

    Disney plans to transform the exteriors of the W Hotel and the adjacent Argent building at Broadway and 47th Street into a gigantic backdrop of Mount Everest. An aerial acrobatic troupe will perform there Feb. 15 and 16 on a stage 57 stories high, rappelling down the mountain and coming face to face with a Himalayan yeti - the legendary abominable snowman.

    An animatronic beast also will be part of the ride when it opens in Florida April 7. The attraction is designed to resemble an old mountain railway, taking guests to the foot of Mount Everest through bamboo forests, past thundering waterfalls and into snowcapped peaks before plunging through canyons to an encounter with the angry yeti.

    Any idea why they picked those dates? Mid week in NYC?? Not even during the holiday week.
