Expedition Everest On-Ride Videos Leaked

Remember, this is a Disney ride, a video can't accuratly replicate an actual ride on it. And there still some effects missing from the final ride that will be installed before opening. *** Edited 1/16/2006 6:18:24 AM UTC by The Mole***

wow that looks sweet. I bet it will scare some people when the train stops just before the track breaks off and then goes backwards

Wow. Looks great. But I didn't see much of the Yeti. Still, looks really exciting.

Everything I have heard is that the Yet iis the greatest animatronic WDI has ever built, and this is the best E-Ticket since Spash Mountain 13 years ago. Bout time WDW!! :)

It took 3 viewings of that to make sure the Yeti was not just on a projector. That thing is amazing. Whoa. And it seems that the backwards part gets some decent speed, judging by the screams. Wow. Just wow.

I haven't watched the video yet because I don't want to spoil it (one more week!), but I've read somewhere that the train hits 50 mph in the backwards section. I have no idea if that's true or not, but that's pretty impressive if it is!

I'm looking forward to this---we'll be there late feb/early mar, when hopefully EE will be in perpetual soft open.

still waiting for it to download. How long did it take all of you. OK they finally downloaded. It can take a while! That looks like it will be a great ride! *** Edited 1/16/2006 7:53:10 PM UTC by Trick Track***

I, on RoadRunner cable, took about ten minutes to download each of them

Are you serious? The part where the Yeti rips the track isn't a projection???
Monday, January 16, 2006 3:42 PM
It has to be a projection.

Looks to be an awesome ride, the mountain looks so cool. *** Edited 1/16/2006 8:43:18 PM UTC by eightdotthree***

It's a projection where he rips the track, but you zip under the animatronic later in the ride.
Monday, January 16, 2006 3:49 PM
OK...that makes sense. Hard to catch in the video.

The ride looks like the Matterhorn on crack. ;)

As LG said, that Yeti is a projection. There's no way to get those movements from an animatronic.

You can see the animatronic on both videos, buts it's much easier to see on the second video. It happens at the very end of the video and it is over the train.

Definately looks to be a great Disney coaster. Yet another reason for my long overdue return to Orlando. Heck, I haven't been down there since Kraken was under construction. Far too long!

I'm a little surprised that that's all you see of the Yeti animatronic.

After all the hype of it being the most advanced ever made and even of how they tried to give it a distinct odor and everything - then they zip you by it in an instant.

I expected it to be more prominent.

I wouldnt go by those videos they are poor quality and pitch black in many places. There are some places where the camera isnt even pointed right.
Monday, January 16, 2006 5:17 PM
True, but if it's pitch black, then it's pitch black and there wouldn't be anything (or at least much of anything) to see.

The two places where a Yeti is visible, there is enough light that even if the camera wasn't pointed towards the action you'd be able to tell that there is something to look at. Everywhere else that they're inside the mountain, it's pretty darned dark.

There might be more and maybe (highly doubt it) that what I think is a projection is indeed the most fabulous animatronic that the world, or at least the gp, has ever seen.

Still, I'm with Gonch on this one. Although, I wouldn't mind being wrong. :)

Where the Yeti rips the track is a projection. At the end of the ride is the real AA figure and it is amazing.
