I love EE, and I am not your typical roller coaster person. However, I do love the roller coasters at Disney. This is awesome, just try it!!

My opinion. Try everything at least once. If you didn't like it or care for it, don't do it again. If you liked it or loved it, keep going back. Everyone's different.

BTW,,, I LOVED EE!!!

For Disney, it is a really good rollercoaster. For any other amusement park, it is very tame.

It is interesting, but the pauses are...I don't know the word. Rollercoasters - thrill rides - aren't supposed to have breaks. It is like the ride pauses to go out for a smoke, then comes back.

I really like it - and think it is a great addition to AK - but I don't absolutely love it. I wish that Disney would make up its mind. If they are going to have a thrill ride, make it thrilling! If not, then just make a ride.

...that's just me.

Here's what ya gotta do--get to AK right before it opens. Head to Asia when they let you in. Get a fast pass for EE. Ride EE. Ride EE again. Ride EE again. Ride EE again. Use your fast pass when you need to. Get another fast pass.
BTW--when you ride EE, be sure to ask for the front at least once, and the back car at least once.
It is a most excellent ride.
Oh, and don't forget to ride EE again!

so it doesn't go upside down? I can handle Disney Coasters mostly because they don't take me too far out of my comfort zone...

We went on Monday, went straight to EE at park opening. Got fastpasses then waited in standby line. DH liked it, I LOVED it, DS5 was a bit scared by the yeti, DS9 REALLY LOVED it. At fastpas time, DS5 did not want to go again, so DS9 and I rode twice in a row (we had two sets of fastpasses) and wished we could go again, but the line was 90 minutes by that time and fastpasses were out. We would have gone on many more times, but it the ride was down for quite a while on our other day at AK.
Have fun!

I haven't had the chance to ride EE yet, but I can't wait. My boyfriend's mom and dad went recently and rode EE. They didn't like it. His mom said it hurt her ears (I'm guessing from noise?), and his dad didn't like the fact that it went backwards. But from what I've heard its not a rough ride. His sister absolutely loved it. I couldn't imagine not giving it a shot!

I would say definitely ride it, if you don't like it it's not the end of the world but at least you've experienced it once. Better than regretting it and wishing you'd done it, you don't go to Disney every day after all!!

I can't wait and I don't even like some big thrill rides. We saw EE being built and it looked pretty darn scary... but now I'm all excited about it for some reason!

That's exactly what I did--looked it over and then had to get on to see for myself. Unfortunately, I found out that the backward part of the ride gave me a major, "deep" headache that lasted several hours. So I'll never get on again.
Should add tho that it's a fine ride otherwise.

Hmmmm...I've been on tons of roller coasters.... but I haven't been on one that goes backwards in over 15 years(now I am feeling old) Hopefully it won't give me a headache...I'll make sure to bring advil just in case.
