Disney Everest! Expedition Everest Adventure at Disney's Animal Kingdom Brings the Legend of Yeti to Life. 

Legend holds that high in the Himalayan Mountains lives an enormous creature that fiercely guards the route to Mount Everest.

Now that legend comes dramatically to life at Disney’s Animal Kingdom in a new high-speed train adventure that combines coaster-like thrills with the excitement of a close encounter of the hairy kind. Walt Disney World guests will discover for themselves the fearsome legend of the yeti when Expedition Everest opens in April 2006 at Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park.

Expedition Everest is a thrilling adventure themed to the folklore of the mysterious yeti. Aboard out-of-control railcars screaming forward and backward, white-knuckle adventurers swoop into the unknown, braving twists, turns and drops inside and outside a mighty mountain leading to an unforgettable encounter.

In Expedition Everest, guests board an old mountain railway destined for the foot of Mount Everest. The train rolls through thick bamboo forests, past thundering waterfalls, along shimmering glacier fields and climbs higher and higher through the snow-capped peaks.

But suddenly the train screeches to a halt near a gnarled mass of twisted metal. In a fit of rage, the yeti has torn apart the track. The thrills intensify as the runaway train moves both forward and backward through darkened mountain caverns and icy canyons and guests head for an inevitable face-to-muzzle showdown with the towering yeti -- known to some as the abominable snowman.

The train accelerates at speeds up to 50 mph into a fog of spiral curves taking mountaineers down a 80-foot plummet to escape the wrath of the powerful yeti.

Expedition Everest is located in the Asia section of Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park. At nearly 200 feet high, it is the tallest mountain in Florida. Expedition Everest features Disney’s FastPass ride reservation system.
