Beware! If you have ridden Disney’s “Big Thrills” rides before and vowed never to ride again, Expedition Everest may not be the ride for you. This trek to Everest on a rickety train in search of the infamous Yeti is a heart pounding thrill ride.
Before you and other brave souls board the train to Everest you take a leisurely stroll through a travel agency and trading posts. In both places you have the opportunity to look through others journeys to Everest. Photographs and real gear make themselves interesting items to peruse while waiting to board your own train to Everest. If you have a PAL Mickey he comes in handy while you wait at Expedition Everest.
Before you know it you will head towards the train tracks where you board a mountain train destined for Everest, two people to a car. As your train heads out the ride is slow and the climb is large. Anticipation of the “Big Thrill” begins to set in when you and the other train riders discover that the tracks have been destroyed. No longer able to go forward up the mountain there is only one choice… backwards! Hang on tight and get ready to scream as the train furiously travels backwards and forwards through canyons, glaciers and the dark. If you are brave enough to keep your eyes open you may encounter the legendary Yeti!
Expedition Everest is an exciting trip in search of the legend that everyone is curious about, the abominable snowman. So make sure you are at least 44 inches (113cm) or taller, pack your gear and board the train that will have you screaming in just minutes.
