Is Expedition Everest for me?

Walt Disney World: G forces and other concerns.

From Daniel Etcheberry

I didn't feel well at Mission: Space because the G forces gave me a scary pressure on my chest. At Indy I ended up in someone's else lap because I don't have enough strengh in my upper body. On the other hand, I enjoyed the Mummy a few years ago, but I wouldn't do anything more intense. Is it worth the try even with the Yeti issue?

The backwards portion on Expedition Everest is pretty intense. You're spiraling backwards through a tight helix in the darkness. It almost feels like an inversion.

If I were you, I'd still try it! It's a really great attraction.

If you were ok with the Mummy, I think you should be fine with Everest.

For sure if you can handle Mummy, you can handle Everest. It's a blast. Well rounded mix of thrills, decent speed, and theming. One of my kid's favorites and probably my most favorite Disney coaster.

What gives me butterflies in my stomach is to see that steep helix in front of the mountain.

The only bad part is going backwards in the dark it really feels like your going up side down but really your not if your cool with that you should be fine.

If you are afraid of being confronted by a giant Yeti reaching out toward you as if he were about to snatch you out of your seat ... well, you have nothing to worry about.
