A Disney podcast called Inside the Magic has posted two ride-through videos of the Expedition Everest ride at Animal Kingdom in Florida. It is what we Imagineers like to call so totally wicked awesome.
The video is from a roller coaster, so it’s dark and bumpy and blurry and such, but then that’s why The Zapruder Effect is in play. You can see the cool Yeti shadow effect, and the twisted tracks sequence, as well as pretty much the entire ride in the video. But what’s going on in all the pitch black sequences? And what’s it feel like on the ride itself?
I’ll find out the next time my job takes me to Orlando. I’m feeling lucky!
If you use iTunes, you can get at the video podcasts part one and part two.
(And the goofy picture of me is just to test out ecto, a blog-writing app that I’m thinking of using.)
