I agree with this. The sensation of going backwards in the dark - if someone had told me that we were going upside down, I would have believed them. Similar to riding Tower of Terror...at times I can't tell if we're going up or down.

EE is my fave for different reasons......it is less traumatic to the body than RnR IMO......the change in directions is unique as far as my rollercoaster experiences go......and yes I thought we were inverted the first time we road it and came to find out it's a backewards "G" thing!! I like how you are tooling along and you go up only to find the tracks are separated and mangled and you have no where to go except back down - - backwards.......so the theme is top notch in my book!! Enjoy!!

I always thought EE, when it came to coasters, was it's own animal

But seriously, I HIGHLY recommend at least one ride all the way up front! The view is spectacular at the top.

It's my favorite WDW coaster. It's a bummer that it's in my least favorite park! It's just intense enough for me but doesn't have any huge drops that make your stomach drop. For me, it's perfect.

I think a pp mentioned this, but not only is it my very favorite coaster, but also my favorite queue. Go through the regular line at least once, you get a great back story, beautiful walk path, and the museum is terrific!

I love EE - I think it is my favorite coaster at WDW - though I really love R n R as well - I love how well the theme is done - all the details of the ride and the ride itself is fun, unique and exhilarating! I say if you haven't ridden it before go for it at least once and see how you like it.

Here is a tip - if you don't want to wait in the queue (though I recommend it at least once because the details are very good) - go in the single rider line - it is usually open and almost always a walk on ride - I never wait more than 5 minutes for EE. Of course if you are a group everyone will have to ride separately if you do single rider.

ENJOY!

Its pretty fast loading. Lines generally are not as bad as on other coasters
