I Rode Everest!


#1

Ok…so I didn’t exactly ride EE, but I kinda did. As y’all know, my FIL just started working over at EE about a week ago. Well, he called us tonight at about 10:30 and asked us if we wanted to ride along with him…of course we said “YES!!!” So he held his cell phone while he rode. First, let me tell you, my FIL is a tough guy, he’s not the type that would scream on a ride…well, there were several times he let out a great big “WHOOOOOOAAAA” and I heard a “HOLY MOLY” or two… It was cool cause he kinda gave us a play by play as he rode, like “ok, now we’re going up on the track between the buildings and the mountain” and “we’re going backwards now,” stuff like that. But the coolest part was that we could actually hear the sound effects on the ride. At the very beginning I heard the safety spiel about putting your belongings in the bin in front of you, and could hear the wind blowing by the phone. But even cooler than that, WE HEARD THE YETI!!! It was awesome. We could hear him roar. Man…I CAN NOT wait to ride this in May…

I just wanted to share with you guys… :biggrin:

That is so cool.
This ride sounds better every time I hear about it.

This post made me chuckle to myself because if you told this to anyone else, like a coworker, they would think you were nuts. But all of us here think it’s awesome! LOL. I’m still hoping that somehow I will be able to get on next week.

Wow - very cool. I’m a total Everest freak. I read everything I can about it (the real one). I cannot wait for my first ride!

Only DC members could get excited over a second-hand phone call posted on a forum!

Ya gotta love us.
