Today BoingBoing links to a CryptoZoologist (wikipedia entry) who has done some work with Disney’s Imagineers on the next major roller coaster attraction to open at a Disney theme park – Expedition Everest. Also revealed, thanks to MagicalMountain.net, is the backstory imagineering has conjured to add verisimilitude to the attraction (see below the cut).
Testing has already started, but over 6 months of operational testing time is needed before it can be opened to the public. If they double up shifts they can usually cut that time in half. The description sounds pretty extreme. I just hope it’s not so violent I can’t ride it.
