    I've been keeping track of any news so far on this attraction as there might be a soft opening in September of this year. Plus I know that Castmembers get chances to be guinea pigs for new attractions. If any one can help to keep a watch on any EE news that would be great! It looked amazing when I was there in March, and I just can't wait for it to open. I'm hoping there will be at least on chance for me to ride it during Fall CP.

    :scared1: :laughing: :scared1: :laughing: :scared1: :laughing: :scared1: :laughing: :scared1:
    Here are some facts I found:

    Max Height of Track: 120 ft
    Max Drop: 80ft
    Max Speed: 50mph
    Trains will travel in both forward and backward directions :scared1: :scared1:

    If there's a chance to ride it while my bf and I are doing the CP, then I'm going to try with all my might to get him on it! He usually never does coasters at all, but in March he had his first trip to WDW, and I got him on two coasters in one day: Primeval Whirl and... Rockin' Roller Coaster! Woot for me and two woots for him! So needless to say I'm way excited about Expedition!

    Who else is excited?!

    lol.... yeah I know I call it a baby coaster... but Primeval Whirl is doing a lot better than I could get him to do last year... which equaled no coasters. :guilty:

    I've seen some pretty amazing pictures of EE, I'm just soooo excited!! :rotfl: :goodvibes :rotfl:

    It did look amazing when I saw it March. A CM mentioned that the track was complete and the mountain was technically completed structually wise - it's now officially the tallest "mountain" in Florida

    Good thing too. AK has been my least fav WDW park since it opened ni '98 (I was actually there on opening day, too!). It's got some neat stuff, and it certainly is Nahtazu, but in my opinion, even though it's got the most room, it has the least to do. I think they are in desperate need of a good ride or two over there. Dinosaur and Kali River Rapids just don't cut it for thrill rides in my opinion. My fav ride there now is Kilamanjaro Safaris, but even that can be dull if no animals decide to come out and play. AK is in serious need of some cool rides.

    I can't wait for Expedition Everest.

    Any word on when it'll officially open. We're going on Jan. 2006. Do you think it'll still be in the soft opening period then?

    soft opening is when they allow people to ride it at certain times, certain days..

    They did this with Mission Space
