Facts:The Expedition Everest has a mid-course switch-track and reverse section.

As of its building, the Expedition Everest was the largest and most expensive single attraction at Walt Disney World.

The height of the attraction is said to be nearly 200 feet.  This is probably referring to the height of the mountain and not the height of the track contained within.

The Expedition Everest is the first ride to use Vekoma's newest track system.  Rather than the rails be on the inside of the ties, they will be on the outside.  To date Vekoma has only used this system on their smaller roller coasters.  This will be the first large scale installation of such a system.
