Everest

Everest



If you look around as you travel up the mountain you will see signs of the Yeti’s presence. (This ride scared the bejesus out of me) It is definitely fast and it is a very popular ride!








Everest




Then……the train stops because the track that you are supposed to use is ripped up. If you like scary rides, this is for you! Plunging through caverns backwards is not my kind of fun but the kids love it!
