Random stupid question.... If I went in 2006... Was the yeti moving? I remember only being terrified on my first ride =]

I can understand though why they haven't done a complete refurb. That's your #1 attraction in AK. If that would go into refurb to fix, it could take forever, and park numbers going down. It probably won't be refurbed for the yeti issue until a bigger and newer attraction is available to keep guests occupied for a while

When it opened in April of 2006, it worked, but I don't know exactly for how long. I know it was working in July when we were there. I don't know if it made it to the end of the year.

And I agree...they are waiting until they can undertake the major downtime to fix it - if they ever do.

I rode it in Sept 06 and remember the yeti as fully functioning. You could not miss it. In B mode, many first time riders completely miss the yeti at the end.

The first time I rode was the first week of January 2007 and it the yeti still worked. I bet it broke soon after that. It's devastating to hear that it's still broken... which makes the yeti of the Matterhorn much more scarier and impressive because at least he moves.
