We were @ Animal Kingdom 10 days ago and have to admit the expedition everest ride was not all what it is hyped up to be.

Think, thunder mountainish. The ride starts off pretty much going up this steep steep track and your thinking "oh no" this is gonna be crazy....for us it was not!

We went and got passes for the fast track which told us to come back at 12.15-13.15 and as we wanted to ride it twice we lined up in the regular line at 11am. It was quite busy with a 40 minute wait in the regular line.

After the first time we gave away out fast passes to another family as we didn't enjoy it at all. Enjoyed the Safari much more.

The ride is short, about 3 minutes. It's twisty-turney-backwards kind of ride. Much of the same old same old. I love coasters, and the best one I rode *by far* was Kracken at Seaworld! Take your daughter to that one, it was awesome!

For a complete description of the Everest ride, go to the link I've paisted below.

It does not go up-side-down or looping, but it does go backward and very fast through corkscrew-type curves. It also has some pretty good-sized drops.

Here's the link:
