Watch Out for Bears on Big Grizzly Mountain!

Hong Kong Disneyland's latest attraction, the Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Cars, is now in a preview mode, and while the video is pretty shaky a rider has posted a full point of view of the new coaster:

The coaster most certainly looks like Expedition Everest and Big Thunder Mountain had a baby, and that baby was named Big Grizzly Mountain.  The ride system is by Vekoma, like Expedition Everest, complete with track switching and a backwards section.

The launch looks like great fun, and the bear characters that wreak havoc as you make your way around the track is a cute addition, too.  The rest of the new land, named Grizzly Gulch, features a large water play area as well.  After this section opens later this month there will still be the Mystic Point area to look forward to, home to a large dark ride.
