I was pretty dissapointed, but then again it was hyped beyond belief. Inside the mountain, the theming is non-existent and you can easily see the framework of the mountain--there's no tunnel, it's just a roller coaster inside the facade of a mountain once you get in the thing after an impressive build-up. I mean, you can see all kind of steel and light coming in. That's what dissapointed me. The Yeti is extremely impressive but you barely get a glance at it.
I love EE. I haven't ridden it in awhile, but I think it's great. The first couple times I rode it, the Yeti wasn't working... it just did that strobe thing. I was disappointed, thinking, oh, that's it?
But the next time, the Yeti scared the heck out of me. I wasn't expecting it, and all of a sudden... THERE HE IS... I actually ducked away from his arm. LOL But it's awesome.
We rode it twice last week. The first ride was in the front row and it was so amazing. The yeti has so much detail and it was a fabulous ride.
The next time we rode in the back in the last row. It was a totally different ride and I actually grayed out and I seriously thought I was going to either pass out or throw up or both. It really was different and I dont know if I could have ridden it again.
I am either getting old or it was just really different in the back. Either way, it is still one of the best roller coasters and I will go on it again in October.

EE is absolutely fantastic!!! Just the queue line alone is fantastic with the themeing and whatnot - it builds you up to meet the real Yeti. The ride itself is well-theme, though i thought some parts were just a bunch of darkness, but thats what you get inside of a mountain!! the part where you find out that the track is bent is just plain jaw-dropping!! The Yeti AA is amazing - it is the best disney has ever implemented and it is so powerful, that it uses some kind of motor/engine that can propel a Boeing 747.....simply a well-crafted adventure from queue line to finish!!
Blast Off Into Adventure!!
