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.
