    Today I was watching Disney Channel and Emperor's New School (haven't heard of it until today) came on. I decided to watch it and at one part during the show, Kronk and Yzma jump into a roller coaster car to go to her secret lab and a Yeti (looked like the one from the Matterhorn) pops up beside the tracks with its red eyes flashing. I thought that may have been on there because of Expedition Everest opening.

    I've been on it a few times now, the AP preview and again this weekend.
    I think it's a cross between Big Thunder and R&R.
    It's a very short ride I think, and not all that great.
    EE is a great coaster but I think R&R is still a better ride

    We're here now!

    Expedition Everest is now open for previews! Official opening is coming up next two weeks. Most exciting new ride since Mission Mars. An E ride all the way.

    I'm not sure that official opening date is correct. The Orlando Sentinel says the official opening is April 7th. The ride does seem to be open most of the time now, but be prepared for occassional closings which happens when a new ride first opens.

    Hey i rode Everest too!!! the only thing bad about it is when you go down the path backwords after you see the tracks all ripped up there should have been a bigger drop backwords but other than that it was awesome!!!

    Everest ride video

    Okay, I bet some have already seen this, but I found a video of Expdition Everest ride but I figured I'd put it on just in case. It's pretty dang cool but it might spoil the ride. But it also would also make the ride alot less scary. If I didn't see the video I would be so freaked out in April (I'm going to WDW then). It's up to you.

    As long as were posting about everest related web pages, take a look at the latest addition to my web site, I have several everest postcards (which do a good job of tying into the "Forbidden Mountain" backstory, on my site on the 2006 postcards issues page:

    Last week I went to AK for the first time since the first day EE opened for cast member previews. We were told the line would be 45 mins and it ended up being 25 not adding the 15 mins we spent in one spot right before getting on the ride since it broke down. My boyfriend and I who had already done it during the previews had been trying to not ruin it for a friend of ours with us and didn't mention the animatronic Yeti. We knew that the Yeti had to be the problem and I heard a cast member say "Not working" and "moving" in the same sentence. Billy and I looked at each other and immediately said "Plan B..." We knew that this ride was going to be alot different. We were right. Instead of the usual ride with the lights in the Yeti's cave ON and him swinging at you the lights were OFF and the Yeti's roar was alot louder and he was positioned in a scary position. A white light would flash on him over in over.

    It was a difference experience for sure. I liked it, but I think I like the PLAN A version better. My friend didn't seem to mind when I explained that's not exactly how the ride was supposed to be. She liked it just fine.

    Anyways wanted to share that info.
