Expedition Everest - Train getting pulled through!

Postby robbalvey » Tue Jul 26, 2005 5:22 pm

Hey everyone,

WDWMAGIC has posted some really good photos of Expedition Everest at Animal Kingdom doing a pull through. Have a look:

What do you all think? I like the stuff they put on the train to test the reach envelope! Cool, huh? :lol:

I think whatever it is, Drop or whatever looks very scary for a disney ride!!

Cool, I have such high hopes for this ride.
Its like the first seriously major thing Disney have done for... well.. far too long!

Mountains are where they excel!

Interesting to see a train without the final artistic touches added to it yet (Imitation rust, grease smears, copper erosion. Disney-esque stuff). Looks very plasticky and bland... Much like how most other parks would leave it.

Where do they draw the line at for a sensible clearance envelope?
Do they simply care about people with their arms extended in simply rider joy, or does it also cater for the retards who actually attempt to touch the scenery?

It has been awesome watching this ride be built, I still remember when it was a concrete wall with a few steel girders. This attraction looks to be on the on par with the high standards people have of Disney's attractions.
I don't post here enough to warrant a signature.

Wow! Time flies, seems like just yesterday they announced it! It's about time Disney built a none 3D attraction!

Not looking forward to that attraction. Knowing the head imagineer -- it will probably be overly loud and too scary.
