Biggest Disney Animatronic Malfunction! | Expedition Everest Yeti

  • Published on Jun 22, 2017
  • Here is the top Disney Animatronic Malfunction from one of the biggest Disney Parks E Ticket attraction and Disney ride at Animal Kingdom in Walt Disney World. Expedition Everest is home to Disney's biggest audio animatronic ever built: the Yeti. The Yeti on Expedition Everest has not been working (malfunctioning) for over 10 years now having turned on Disco Yeti. Disney Audio animatronics are a staple of Disney Park attractions. And over the years these figures have gotten more and more impressive, but audio animatronics are complicated robots which do fail from time to time. *** DON"T FORGET TO LIKE AND SUBSCRIBE!*** ► ◄

      TPMvids for some reason when me and my family go on expedition everest, we always end up in the back. We dont ask to go in the back or swap with people but we always get put in the very back and we (my family and I) have a bet on if we will end up in the back or not😂

      TPMvids one time I went on the ride the strobe lights were off so you could see the yeti in b mode perfectly

    This was my first ride at Disney and my first roller coaster ever! So me and my 3 friends get on and are having fun but screaming...and when it comes time for the picture there was a little girl ( age 5-8) and her dad or brother sitting in row 1, me and my cousin are in row 2 and my two other friends are in row 3. So we ( my friends and I) are freaking out right and she makes a kissing/ duck lips face 😗 and makes a peace sign with her hand and smiles ... that is probably my favorite on ride picture from Disney

    I feel like if they'd give the yeti MORE LIGHT overall he'd look more menacing than simple strobing. Having rode the attraction several times you can barely see him, even when you're looking directly at him.

    I feel like They should close Disney for A holiday or for at least a month and Try to fix it. Too much hard work for it to go to waste but idk

    I was six years old and my family accidentally booked our trip to animal kingdom on the day this ride opened. It haunts me I could have seen the yeti move.

    You can see how proud the creator of the ride is about the yeti and how pissed he is about no one can see how the yeti moves

    What I would say to do is a projection in the 2 & 1/2 D that the Mickey & Minnie ride at Hollywood Studios will supposedly have.

  • Colby'sUglyAnnoying Hoe

    I think its just a malfunction not a big situation i think they will do it...and they should check the computers and things just to see how it goes..

  • AshTheMightWolf

    I don’t consider the yeti being fixed or the ride going down for maintenance just because they have to take apart the mountain just to reach it...... Therefore even if Disney did most likely shut the ride down, they would lose visitors and money.

    When u went on the ride as a kid, I did realize the yeti was actually shown. I rode when it was in b mode and couldn't see him due to the flashing being so quick. I thought he was just a bunch of rods and rocks

    I’ve ridden Everest 6 times, and only on the most recent time did I see the yeti. I’m not sure why, maybe my 7-and-8-year-old self just closed her eyes lol. But when I saw it asked my friend and she said it was an animatronic that used to work. I didn’t believe her, but after watching this video I do now

  • Koriography2929

    they’re going to have to fix it at some point to increase the longevity of the ride, especially because it is a structural issue. whether or not the animatronic gets put back into a mode will be disney’s call.

    As an epileptic, I'd like the Yeti fixed, because with the strobe lights as they are, I'd never be able to experience that ride.

    It would be a grand disservice to leave an elaborate, powerful, and record breaking animatronic in the sorry state that it's in. Fix the yeti!!!!

  • Daisy Doodrop
    Daisy Doodrop 2 months ago +2

    I don’t think Disney will ever fix the Yeti as:
    1: It’s only for a tiny segment of the ride
    2: Its a good illusion
    3: No one would really notice
    4: Disco Yeti is a good meme

    Honestly the yeti would still be scary just standing still you don’t need to give everyone seizures. He looks scary enough to carry the ride as it’s animatronic

  • Blanche Keen

    I rode it when the yeti was in A-mode which scared me to death haha, but I have seen it in B-mode (disco yeti) and love it just the same. I do hope it does get fixed someday, as do many of the other attractions that need that special tlc.

    I had my very first trip to Disney in 2006, I was 8 years old. And I was lucky enough to make it onto the ride with the moving Yeti. I actually still remember the moving Yeti and how amazingly terrifying it was.
