  • Matterhorn Bobsleds Closed

    The Matterhorn is going to be closed all of September, does anyone know how long it will be closed? Is Disney making any major changes to the ride, or is this just for refurbishment?

    Wow. You scared me for a second with your subject heading -- I was going to say "no they're not, I rode them yesterday!"

    Riderefurbs.com has the following: Matterhorn Bobsleds August 28 November 22 n/a
    Mouseplanet has a little more detail, as follows, from a report this week:

    In a piece of good news for late-summer travelers, the closing of Matterhorn Bobsleds for a couple months appears to have been delayed to September 5. This keeps it available through Labor Day but may also mean it will be closed over the Thanksgiving weekend in November. It seems the target is still to have it open by then, but if not then it should be open in time for the Christmas rush.

    There's no information that this will be anything but a maintenance refurbishment so far.

        Well the ride IS almost 50 years old...

        The refurb is also rumored to add new bobsleds that have a new restraint system and eliminate lap seating.

          If you ride the Tomorrowland side, there is infact a "new" bobsled on the side track waiting to be tested. There is a tag on front that says Do Not Use. I hope they improve the snow falling effect on the chain lift up and enhance this effect with cold air.

            I saw that yesterday - are you sure this is a new bobsled? It looked used and I saw that one seatbelt was worn out with yellow tape on it.

              Actually I don't know, that was why i put "new" in quotes. I didn't really get a good look at it. They have had a few on that side track before, but his was has been there for a couple of weeks now, so I figured it may be new and needs testing. But i honestly don't know.

                    It looks like the old ones, it only has a yellow tag on front that says "Do Not Use". It may not even be new just newly refurbished or going to be refurbished. It has been sitting there on the side track for atleast a week, and every time I go by I don't think to give it a good look.

                      That "DO NOT USE" bobsled has been sitting there since at LEAST May 06, when I first saw it. I believe it is waiting for retirement.

                          Disneyland Have no way to take bobsleds and fix wheels, so Disneyland need to take Bobsleds off track and may paint on it and check then all also the same time check the track.

                            Can we turn it into a Mastercard Ad?

As you can see below we've created some T-shirts, plus a few simple graphics that you can copy and paste into your websites to let folks know how you feel.
