                  Well, i'm going into obnoxious technicalities here. The real Everest is in Asia. So the fake Everest is going in the Asia part of Animal Kingdom. Animals? i guess the Yeti works.

                  Anyone know how big the Yeti is going to be?

                    Huge from what I hear, big enough for a 60 foot long train too see him!

                    Just for clarification, Animals is not the whole theme to Animal Kingdom, it's also about conservation and the symbolic relationship between humans and nature. I can't explain it now, but on the wdwmagic site there is a link to an interview with Joe Rhode about the myth and legend of the Yeti and how it ties in with conservation.

                      I guess this is a good exchange for the cancelled dragon plans they had when the park opened. I guess this just makes my Animal Kingdom merchandise more valuble!

                      I'm just waiting for someone to snap a pic of the Yeti. I bet it will scare the bejeezus out of everyone.

                        You mean the dragon coasters? Heck, you can ride those over at IOA - complete with hidden Mickeys on the ride vehicles!

                          Uh
                          No, not the coasters.
                          Dragon idea. Didn't you read that article Kevin Yee wrote a while back?
                          Lemme dig it up.
                          Screw IOA.
                          Overrated.

                            The Dueling Dragons coaster at IOA that Labuda was talking about was designed by ex-WDI folks, who had planned a similar attraction (Dragon's Tower) for a section of DAK on mythical animals (Beastly Kingdome) that was never built. One of the reasons it wasn't was because IOA built the similar attraction.

                            As to IOA being overrated, that's subjective. Some folks think today's WDW parks are overrated too. I always enjoy my times at WDW and IOA!

                              Well, other than Spider-Man, the rest of the park is nothing all that great. The only exception is Halloween Horror Nights, which I have reguallry attended in the past.

                                Spiderman is one of the most amazing theme park attractions anywhere. I too love HHN's, although not many of the idiots who also attend and want to make themselves the center of attention.

                                But I disagree that the rest of the park isn't all that great. Seuss Landing is wonderful (especially if compared to say Toontown Faire at the MK). Cat in the Hat and One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish are quite whimsical and fun. I also love the look of the area where Dueling Dragons is located ... and Mythos is the best theme park restaurant I've ever eaten at that wasn't in Epcot. Jurassic Park is also very nicely themed, although I'm not overly impressed with the River Ride. They also USED to have the best burgers in any theme park at the fast-food outlet across from JPRA, but then they pulled a Disney and went from high quality (likely ground sirloin to typical crap meat). Even Popeye and Bluto's raft ride gets kudos from me and I hate raft rides in general. The Port of Entry area theming is as good or better than anything Disney has done of late. There are parts of the park I really don't like, I think Marvel Superhero Island and Toon Lagoon really look terrible in parts -- and are wasted opportunities -- but overall, I find the park to be a wonderful place to visit.

                                  Ummmmm, the stuff I coughed up earlier this year during my bouts with the flu and then pneumonia looked better than Toontown Fair over at the MK... what's your point here, 74? hehe

                                    Trying to bring the thread back on topic... with each new picture I see of EE, I get more and more excited.
                                    Also, I don't remember if this was posted here but read this article. To summerize it, there are 3 structures (the mountain, track, and Yeti). They can never touch because the forces exerted by the coaster and the Yeti (which has the force of many 747s) would make the mountain crumble. Wow!
