    Question What's "Glacier Peak"?



    I've been hearing of a "Glacier Peak" project hover all around the forum and I wonder....

    What is it?

    I suspect it's either a Mountain attraction in the vein as Everest or a Asian twin of Blizzard Beach....

    If you know please comment and explain, because this is really got me POed!
    Don't think of a gun as a weapon.
    Think of it as a third arm that magically
    shoots bullets!

    there are several versions of the "Glacier Peak" being mentioned here in Hong Kong by local media. Since there is no official description of the attraction, we don't know exactly what it is.

    The following is a description by local Newspaper "Sun Daily News":

    另外,迪士尼增建三個主題區後,第一期土地仍有七公頃用地,預留作興建遊樂設施,預計可再加建多幾個主題區 。迪士尼本擬在今次擴建時,引入全球獨有的「冰天雪地」(Glacier Peak),以冰雪高塔、室內真雪及過山車作招徠,但因港府擔心與海洋公園擬建的「冰極天地」主題重複及互 相競爭,最終「冰天雪地」遭否決,換上飽受批評的反斗奇兵歷奇地帶。據知迪士尼仍未放棄「冰天 雪地」
    Translation:
    After the addition of 3 New "Lands" to HKDL, there are still 7 hectares of land set aside for the construction of recreational facilities, and we expect a few more themed Lands to be built. Walt Disney originally intended to build a world's unique attraction under the current expansion plan, "Glacier Peak ", with snow and ice tower, an indoor real snow and roller coaster as an attraction, but the Government worried that it might compete and duplicate a similar new attraction with Hong Kong Ocean Park "Polar Adventure", ultimately "Glacier Peak" was being rejected, and replaced by a much criticized "Toy Story Land". It is understood that Disney has not given up "Glacier Peak".

    Another version of "Glacier Peak", it might look like matterhorn, with a train passing through an interior with blowing snow.

    3rd version of "Glacier Peak", an icy and snowy mountain exterior, a U-shape coaster (as seen in Toy Story Land) with blowing snow in the interior.

    all indoors in a climate conrtolled building, you would take a train to get inside there. there would also be a skiing themed half pipe coaster like in tsl
