4-D Disney Technology article

I was just lettin all you buzzers know that there is an article in the October 27 issue of Forbes about disney'd 4-d software it is using to design new attractions. now the real bonus for this article is it shows a fairly large picture of the everest expedition coaster design plans.

this is taken directly from the article and gives us a little insight into the coaster:
"Visitors board an old mountail railway headed to the foot of Mt. Everest. As the train climbs higher into "the Himalayas" it passes thick bamboo forest, thundering waterfalls, and shimmering glacier fields. But the track ends unexpectedly in a gnarled mass of twisted metal. Suddenly the train begins racing forward and backward through caverns and icy canyons until riders come face to face witha giant hairy creature--the mythical yeti."

sounds pretty sweet to me...especially the backwards part :) from the looks of the picture it looks like a pretty decent coaster...can't really tell much but if you try and follow the layout amidst the mountain structure and support posts, it looks like one with big swooping turns and some pretty decent drops. the picture alone is definitely worth picking up the forbes.
