  • [Chat] Ok So What Do You All Think Is Going To Happen With The Matterhorns Bobsleds?

    Do you think they would get replaced? I'm hearing around people do not like the new sleds and that the ride is still very shaky/bumpy.

    You all wernt kidding when you said there isn't enough room. I saw soem video's and wow, looks really cramped :/

      Being 6'4" I am not looking forward to trying to squeeze into one of these when we go next week.

      We'll see though

        6'4" here too and it was not comfortable at all. Big thumbs down being closed that long and it being rougher than ever.

            I loved how with the old sleds, especially me being a short piece of Pooh at 5'5, I could lean back and relax and have fun at the same time during the ride.

            But also with everyones knees up that high just looks ridiculous.

              seems like they would have kept the same seat and just added the seat belts into a re-designed similar sled.

                Yeah I agree the new plastic seating felt uncomfortable. On the plus side, I happy with the new Single Rider line

                  5'6 was a bit uncomfortable in the middle of 3 seats but manageable very fast though was actually scary at how fast it was going

                    You are all starting to worry me. You see... I'm 7 feet tall.

                    Just kidding... I'm 6'1", but it still sounds like I'm gonna be cramped in those things. The mountain looks great though.

                        If you're really tall, avoid rows 1 and 4. The other rows have just an extra bit of feet room around the butt of the person in front of you. That extra space isn't there in the front of the sleds.

                          I actually didn't notice the ride itself being more uncomfortable in the new seats, but the lack of leg room is just nuts. I'm only 5'3 and it was a bit cramped. My 6'3 bf was miserable.

                            While I can see them eventually getting new sleds that actually don't injure tall people :-P the ride itself doesn't other me. It's a BOBSLED it's supposed to be pretty bumpy

                              It's not the height that's the biggest problem, it's a really rough ride and the seats are not padded at all. For a man the pain is just.......nuts.

                                Honestly I would love for the new bobsleds to go. I'm not saying bring back the old ones but at least redesign new ones with a bit more leg room!

                                  How long have they been working on bringing these new sleds to the Matterhorn? Like three years? The fact that they got so many things wrong is indeed puzzling. They KNEW people have always complained about lack of padding in the old seats. They KNEW there are many people who are taller than 5 feet. Yet here we are. The only thing we can hope for is extra padding hastily installed in the seats because I'm sure they won't be taking these out of commission and rolling out all new sleds anytime soon.

                                    I think this is the third time I have mentioned this on MC and it can be found elsewhere... so bear with me if you think that you've heard this all before.

                                    The new sleek sleds are mainly for looks based on the upcoming movie. They are not going anywhere.

                                    Harold II (that's Harold The Second, not Harold Two), will be installed after the movie (only if it makes enough money I suppose). He is just on paper so far... I do not think they have made an AA of him yet. The mountain is now ready to accomodate him tho. I think b/c they used a bit of forsight, the ride will not have to be down very long to "snap" him into place(s) when the time comes.

                                    The script calls him "Harold", but I am not sure if they use this name in dialogue. Either way, its kinda cool, b/c it is a nod to DL fans who spread this name around after hearing CMs use it for decades.

                                    Disclaimer: Of course, this is all rumor...

                                      You wonder why the tester were not like.....wait this is uncomfortable and not padded..why?

                                      I wish Disney hired less "Yes" men and more people that are willing to speak there mind when it comes to rides and say this works great..but this needs some work
                                      Happy Halloween!!!
