EE is so awesome!!!

Maybe your cousins didn't like it because it wasn't thrilling enough. Disney is geared more to families so the rides are tamer (which is a good thing, because the older I'm getting the more I appreciate Disney's philosophy )

Have a great trip!!!

I'm not a big fan of huge scary roller coasters anymore (I used to love them - I don't know what happened?) and won't go on R&RC but I'm wondering if EE is like BTMRR and/or the Mummy ride at Universal? I love Space Mt and BTMRR and loved the Mummy ride, too.

Usually what "gets" me first is hearing the car cranking up the huge hill. I haven't been on Splash Mt. in years...but I think the reason there is because I don't like feeling like I'm gonna catapult face first from the car!

OK, I didn't have a problem with ToT. I'm not a roller coaster person anymore. Am I going to have a problem with this?

Please tell me no, because I really want to ride it.

My family and I rode Everest twice during our July trip. We loved it! Here's a fun tip - if you are a family of four, try to sit in the very last two seats. When your picture is taken on the ride it will be just the four of you and you get the little cog engine in the picture with you!

No problems at all, it's like a larger faster version of big thunder mountain, it does go backwards for a short distance. All in all very tame and managable for all ages, yet just enough fun to keep you coming back.

PS, don't be intimidated by the long steep climb, the drop does not match.

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.
I couldn't agree more. The first time I rode it I was bored by all the pauses. The second and third rides were more fun (especially being in the front seat) but to a certain degree I would rather ride Big Thunder over EE

Ok, we just got back. Our first day, my dd 9 and I rode it three times. (No fast passes, we got there too late.) Towards the end of our trip, we rode it 8 (yes, that's eight!) times. Three with FPs, once on standby and 5 times on the single line. Then on our last day, we rode it 4 times. By 2pm, then went to MK.

Yes, it's that good. Think BTMRR on steroids.
