Expedition Everest

The trains have room for 34 passengers.

At the midpoint of the ride, the trains stop on the track.  From there, riders can see mangled track and Yeti footprints.  After pausing for six seconds, the train freefalls backward on a completely new path.  This is accomplished by a 200,000-pound, rotating piece of track that allows the train to switch from one section to another.  Later in the ride, another massive switch track allows the train to finish the ride facing forward.
