I’m not sure it is that important...
...except that Disney doesn’t build “rides”...they build story based concepts.
Without the yeti...the concept of the ride...from gate to gate...is incomplete.
It’s not a great pure rollercoaster. People act like it is- but it’s not. Disney isn’t for rollercoasters as we know.
So the whole concept needs the yeti to be complete. It’s splash mountain without the AA or Tower without the show scenes.
It’s also Disney largest mechanical failure in wdw - maybe ever.
And that rubs some as it crosses the “line”
I really can’t fathom why they haven’t fixed the thing yet. It’s a huge show quality issue and that’s something Disney used to be known for. I honestly get upset when I see burnt out popcorn lights and other things not show ready. For what they charge that should not happen and based on what Walt wanted the parks to be should not happen.
