Expedition Everest in Disney’s Animal Kingdom is one of the most popular coasters on property. This dark ride takes riders through the mountain as they try to escape from the infamous yeti. But have you ever seen the inside of the mountain with the lights on?
On a recent evacuation, Guests had this rare opportunity — and they caught it on video!
Guests visiting Disney’s Animal Kingdom are always eager to climb aboard the train and venture up into Mount Everest. While on Expedition Everest, as many of you know, the ride is soon interrupted when riders are stopped dead in their (broken) tracks as the Yeti is trying to scare you out of the mountain.
TikTok user @noahposer shared a video of their recent experience on Expedition Everest, which resulted in an evacuation and seeing the inside of Mount Everest with the lights on! The user did not that even though the Cast Member asked Guests to put their phones away, it was for their own safety rather than for the purpose of filming backstage.
Seeing the inside of Expedition Everest with the lights on is pretty cool considering this is a rare sight! See the video here, but we do want to warn you, that seeing backstage areas could ruin magic for some so proceed with caution:
More on Expedition Everest at Disney’s Animal Kingdom
The Walt Disney World website describes Expedition Everest as:
Wander into a Tibetan village at the base of Mount Everest and board a train to the “top of the world.”
Beware: Some say a legendary snow monster lives deep in the mountain.
After a steep ascent, your train picks up speed and races into the darkness. Without warning, a broken and twisted track appears in front of you. Brace yourself as you plummet backward into total darkness. Inside the cavern, the mythical tale comes true as you see the shadow of a massive, growling beast!
Race to escape the cursed mountain—before the Yeti claims another expedition.
