It's scheduled to debut in the spring of 2006, but they hope for it to be ready by the fall of 2005.

It's a Vekoma-manufactured "family" roller coaster that features forward and backward travel in a full-circuit course. It's highest drop is rumored to be about 80', and it will reside in a mountain peak that is 199' tall. This is the same height as the Tower of Terror and 2' taller than Big Thunder Mountain Railroad's highest spire. It seems as if this mountain will occupy far more real estate.

It's based on a storyline that has part of a mountain expedition. We see Yeti.

Check www.screamscape.com for the best concept art and model photos I've seen.

Walt Disney World will finally have it's own Matterhorn, and Animal Kingdom will finally have a top-notch ride (the dinosaur one doesn't compare with indy jones at Disneyland). Although I'll probably not be near Florida any time soon.

Ha! Knowing the way Disney's been cutting things left and right lately, I wouldn't be surprised if ended up just being a 3-D Movie instead!

...the part of the ride that brings you back to Earth fell victim to budget cuts :)

Isn't that amazing? The rides are absolutely identical layout and ride vehicles.

It just proves a point that theming a good ride properly can make an amazing ride.

Dinosaur's Gilmanometer rating: 5/10
Indy's Gilmanometer rating: 9/10

And they're the same ride...
