In Nepalese lore, the mysterious yeti is thought to protect the pristine east Asian mountains and forests.

The new ride opens April 7.

On topic, Everest totally rocked, even in soft open mode. The Yeti is truly one of the greatest animatronics characters you'll ever see, even if it is for only a few seconds. With this and Soarin' at Epcot (which had a 120+ minute standby line), WDW has got some hot attractions on their hands.
Still a better ride even without.
How does that coach run 40mph backwards uphill? It didn't feel like a LIM launch.*** This post was edited by rc-madness 3/29/2006 12:11:31 PM ***
I have no idea if the Yeti animatronic compares to the Imhotep animatronic. I suppose it could, but that's hard to judge from two seconds compared to about fifteen.
