    We were wondering how big the drop is on Expedition Everest, my son and I are okay with drops around 100 ft, but anything higher is a little too much for us. Thanks.

    Hi, Jennifer. I'm glad you and your son are considering dancing with the Yeti. He's a really good time. Even if he doesn't move like he used to, he still does his best to say hello as you pass through his humble abode.

    If we're going by pure math, the biggest drop on Expedition Everest is 80 feet at 50 mph while the height of the attraction itself is 112 feet. The man in me says DO IT while the father in me gives you this nugget of information: you take the 50 mph drop while plummeting backwards from the forbidden mountain.
