            Rockwork was still going up yesterday. I wouldn't believe this one without confirmation from another source. :monkey:

              i doubt that after spending all that money they would be tearing it down? Im sure they would have researched the steel beforehand to get the most appropriate. Unless this is confirmed someone is just pulling soemones leg.

                I am in the construction business, to be precise I am a concrete batching facility engineer. The last time I saw when supporting rebar was removed was when the temporary wooden forms that made up the form wall caught fire from a welding incident. Rebar is NOT high tensile, its actually very bendable but it MUST be clean of corrosion or heavy rust. For a state project or critical applications its coated with heavy paint almost like plastic.

                However with the park having been through more than its share of high winds I would not be surprised to hear of reports of structural integrity being compromised because not all of the outer shellwork is finished, or maybe a revision of design or addition of a certain guest safety issue is being resolved?

                As big as it is it could have shown a nasty problem or two from wind harmonics, anybody remember the old Tacoma Narrows Bridge?

                  I'm starting to hear news about this, that the steel was damaged during the hurricanes and a lot of it is being torn out and replaced, this may very well push the opening date up a bit.

                      What Mr. D said sounds more reasonable than the original post of the entire Expedititon Everest being torn down, as if being dismissed as a project

                        Just asking how did the hurricane damage the steel and why is it now how many months removed they started to notice this?

                          Its not uncommon to have different contractors doing different aspects of a project, stages of areas such as foundations, rebar placement and such are not done by the same people that do fiberglas work. When the next phas was being started (overlay) it may have been noticed that the specs were out of range of where everything supposed to be. I see that a lot in my business (concrete).

                          This may still yet be just a rumor started on one discussion board and is bouncing around like a rat in a bucket, I see it here and elsewhere but thats the way rumors start.

                          Actually its the no news about things like this that gets my curiosity, this needs some real up front observers to confirm whats going on.

                            As an Animal Kingdom castmember I can say that everything is on track and schedule. The rumors are not true.

                              OK, so nothing is wrong, allright then I guess I'll just wait until it opens up before I visit WDW again...

                                  Its an old saying us "mature" folks remember

                                  Last time I used it was in reference to a young employee I had, he was never able to stay on one job, always bouncing around the yard poking his head into other peoples business or in other words, bouncing off the walls.

                                  Never saw a caught rat in a 5 gallon bucket?

                                    Replacing some structural steel is hardly ripping out the Mountain. BTW the MAgnum at Cedar Point has been sinking for 10 years now!

                                      Ok, I finally called down to someone (who is hardly an authority, but does work in a back area at DAK) and they said there was some minor "issues" with some of the "non-structural steel" which prevented part of the track from aligning...but nothing serious. She said the adjustments are being made and when they last heard, it did not impact the schedule at all.

                                      Just an FYI.

                                      Duck!
