Located in Asia, the new high-speed train adventure will explore the legend of the yeti (known to some as the abominable snowman), an enormous creature that's said to live in the Himalayan Mountains and guard the route to Mount Everest.

The adventure begins when guests board an old mountain railway destined for the foot of the towering Mount Everest. The train rolls through thick bamboo forests, past thundering waterfalls, along a shimmering glacier field and climbs higher and higher through the snow-capped peaks.

Suddenly, the track ends in a gnarled mass of twisted metal. The thrills intensify as the train races both forward and backward through mountain caverns and icy canyons, careening down the mountain slopes as guests head for an inevitable face-to-face showdown with the giant yeti.

At nearly 200 feet in height, Expedition EVEREST will be the tallest mountain in Florida. Guests as short as 42 inches will be able to experience this adventure. Expedition EVEREST will feature Disney's FASTPASS, and is scheduled to open in 2006.

Why not use the abdominal snowman from Monsters Inc? He wasn't all that scary, but it's a good link to a Disney film.

Man, those concept art pictures sure look cool. I wonder how it's gonna affect the skyline of the park though. Time will tell I guess...

With all of the trees in the park, the only really open section is the Safari ride. And they could get away with it there by throwing in a line like "in the distance you can see Mount Kilimanjaro". It should be far enough away that you won't see the track of hear any screams.

Usually they throw in a lame joke, like on the Mark Twain riverboat, they openly talk about Splash & Big Thunder Mountains...Disney is not one to pass up shameless self promotion :D
