I rode Everest for the first time last week. Loved it, in general. It is definitely anticlimactic with a stationary Yeti at the end, though. The strobe light in no way makes it look like it's moving. Still, it's 95% a really fun ride, and to today's Disney management, that's going above and beyond the call of duty. I will say that it was one of only two attractions in the parks that my first-timer wife specifically wanted to ride again. Sadly, there was no way to do so without being willing to wait over an hour. The crowds were insane.
