    Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain opened April 7, 2006. Walt Disney World guests will discover for themselves the fearsome legend of the Yeti when experiencing Expedition Everest. This high-speed train adventure combines coaster-like thrills with the excitement of a close encounter with the Abominable Snowman.

    The Expedition Everest adventure begins when guests board an old mountain railway destined for Mount Everest. As the train heads for the snowy mountain peak, it passes through bamboo forests, waterfalls and fields of glaciers.

    The excitement begins when it's discovered that the train tracks end in a twisted wreck of metal. From here, the train careens backwards and forwards through darkness, frigid canyons and treacherous caverns. A face to face encounter with the legendary Yeti (guardian of the Himalayas) brings this tumultuous train ride to its dramatic conclusion.

    Handicapped Accessibility: Guests must transfer from their wheelchair, scooter, ECV to ride.
