    From the Orlando Sentinel:
    I wonder if they're gonna turn on the Yeti for his big day..

    And risk him falling on people? They should add to that:

    We will turn on the Yeti in the mountain again after a 2 year absence and maybe you'll be lucky enough to have come down and give you a hug while riding!

    No, he won't be on.

    5 years of operation, and 3 without it's main show piece. What a joke.

    I am think they might try but if things go wrong, they will turn it off again.

    Oh come on, that would be a better thrill than the ride itself ever offers!

    I don't think this ride is poor but I do think it's a shadow of its former self. Quite a bit of its effects are either broken or turned off. It's still fun and the attention to detail is awesome but it's not a must do for me.

    Even without the effects I think it's a decent coaster. I never saw the Yeti in full A-mode so I can't make a fair comparison, but when you look at the list of effect turned off compared to those still on, it is a bit of a sorry sight.

    I didn't know there was a LIST of effects, I thought it was just one 20 foot long list doing a disco dance.

    There's a few minor effects that are switched off or are only sometimes active.
    The train should steam at the load station, there's a second waterfall which hasn't been active in years & there's a cloud effect that is supposed to be coming off the top of mountain, to name a few.

    thank god I went the first year it opened. The thing about the yeti is that you only see it for a second anyways so i dont really care. Also, on the top of the mountain there used to be a falcon that would appear.

    The bird at the top of the mountain still appears from time to time, it's one of those effects that are a bit hit or miss.
