Inside the mountain, riders encounter a 25-foot tall Yeti. The Yeti was the fastest and most powerful audio-animatronic figure Disney has ever built. It used to take a swipe at trains as they passed.
In the summer of 2008, the Yeti was deactivated. It is now very dimly lit in order to hide its immobility. It was rumored that its foundation had issues that prevented it from operating. Since it has been stationary for a few years, it must not be a simple fix.
