    Is the Yeti in B mode currently?

    Just wondering if anyone knows if the Yeti is in B Mode? EE is my wife and my favorite attraction (or at the very least ONE of them) and I kept hearing recent reports that the Yeti was in "B mode" a lot lately. Just wondering if anyone has been to the parks recently and can give an update.

    Thanks!

    There are reports that he has been active, but I understand that there is a serious crack in the base that would be a real pain to repair, so they are usually leaving it in "B" mode while plans/money are made available.

    I haven't seen Mr. Yeti move in quite a long time...

    He is definitely still in "B" mode. I was there last week, and rode it almost every day

    "B mode" is a less functional mode (such as moving vs. not moving) used usually when there are issues that require maintenance.

    Re: Is the Yeti in B mode currently?

    I understood "B" mode as just the Yeti standing still with a strobe light on it. That is how it was when we were there in January. I was really disappointed because I was so excited for my brother-inlaw to see it and it was kind of a let down

    I filmed it this time around, and even slowed down the video at the end so you can see it.
    He essentially stands there and the strobe light flashes
    You can see him pretty good in the slowed down portion:
