Expedition Everest will Rule

The St. Pete Times has a great article on Expedition Everest, the next roller coaster mountain to open at Disney World.

The shrieks ought to be fairly constant when the ride opens April 7:

  • The coaster roars up to 50 miles per hour, mainly inside a nearly 200-foot-high mountain – the tallest designed in Disney’s 50 years of park operations.
  • The Everest ride is the first in any Disney park in which a roller coaster travels backward.
  • The biggest surprise comes near the end of the ride: The passengers will suddenly confront the largest-ever Audio Animatronic robot, the Abominable Snowman.

Make sure to read all the way to the end of the article for more facts and figures on the Mt. Everest themed ride. I can’t wait.

    Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril

    Disneyland Paris

    Hop on board and find out what happened to the first expedition after discoverying the famed archaeologist’s abandoned camp. You’re then propelled backwards towards the ancient ruins of the Temple of Peril.

    Disney turned the trains around so riders would travel backwards in 2000.
