Is RNR Rollercoaster more intense than Everest ??? This is the only coaster I haven't rode yet at Disney..
Considering the LSM launch, I'd say yes, it is more insense than Everest.
I'd definitely say yes, RnR is more intense than Everest. RnR has the launch mentioned above - 0 to 60 in 2.8 seconds, and also has 3 inversions - two loops and a corkscrew. It's in the dark and has a soundtrack playing to really pump it up, too.
It's a smooth ride, and if you like coasters, it's a must-do.

Yeah I kinew about the twist inversions etc...I used to ride only SM but now i ride TM and Everest. Not crazy about Rollercoaster to begin with. But being a speed freak..my wife kids got me into coasters but kinda skitish about riding them. SM has got to be one of the roughest riding coasters I've ever been on.
I would compare RnR as a bit more of a thrill ride than Everest. The marketing of Everest has always been to call it thrilling rather than a thrill ride. I've only been riding coasters for a few years, but I can ride both without really freaking out. In fact, the ride up Everest to the top of the mountain is scariest part of the ride for me. I really don't like heights.
the take off is similar to mission space. in the sense you get pushed bak into your seat.
but its really loud and much more intense than EE

I would also say RnR is more intense than EE. However, RnR doesn't have the height factor that EE does and it is a very smooth ride.
When you believe in a thing, believe in it all the way, implicitly and unquestionable.
I'm not sure if it's because i've been on hundreds of rollercoasters, or because i've been on these two rollercoasters a thousand times, but. They're about the same to me now, EE has about two or three intense parts, where to me RnR only has pretty much one (even though RnR is deff top 2 in my favorite coasters). I'd say if you're thinking about riding RnR after being able to ride EE you'll be fine.
I rode RnR on my trip with my gf back in July, I had the first row, and this girl nearly caused me to go deaf in my left ear during the first loop. It was exhilirating to me, it's indoors, dark, loud (the music), and can be disorienting to some, but I oved it.
Expedition Everest is not really a comparable coaster. It's fun, not a LEM, and the ride to the top is thrilling, you can see the Tower of Terror at MGM from the lift hill. The one part that I love during that ride is the sensation of the tight turn going backwards in the dark. No queasiness there, just alot of cackling laughter on my part.
MISSION SPACE: Possibly the greatest ride that is not a coaster. The sensation of weightlessness, the 45 mph that your "shuttle" is moving at,and the visual effects and the movement of the ride vehicle is top notch, but no inversions really, accept for the burn around the moon. 15,000... 16,000... 18,000... 21,000!!! YEAH. I did the Oange version 13 times consecutively, and was eager to do more, but it was closing time.
RnR is a GREAT RIDE. I have always loved coasters, and the music, the darkness, and the speed as Pat said earlier make it a GREAT RIDE, and MORE INTENSE than Expedition Everest: Legend of the Forbidden Mountain
I guess I would put it this way, what scares you more loops and inversions or long drops. If you are not a fan of inversions then I would say that RnR is much more intense for you. If you do not like long drops then Everest would be much more intense. I guess it just comes down to your likes in terms of a thrill ride.
