  • Should they enclose The Matterhorn?

    Re: Should they enclose The Matterhorn?

    I don't think it should be enclosed for one reason: when you turn the corners it feels as if your going to fly of the track, and thats part of the thrill.

        The only reason to enclose it would be to add a loop.

          Most bobsledding is done on the OUTside of mountains,
          not in enclosed tracks. Matterhorn is great as it is,
          with the enhancements added in '78.

          Save those criticisms for California Screamin'. THAT
          is the coaster that NEEDS A COMPLETE MAKEOVER!
          None of that is enclosed, doesn't have near the thrill
          factor as the Matterhorn, and the theme of Screamin
          is the lamest of ANY Disney Coaster.
          Critter Country's a mess ev'r since the Country Bears were kicked out. Ya can't cover pooh with honey and 'spect people ta like it.

            And they could put giftwrap and a ribbon on it for the holiday season.

                Part of the ride is for the people walking by too. Hearing the people scream and the faint sound of Bigfoot really adds to the character of the area. As great as Space Mountain is you don't get to hear sounds from the ride at all. Even when you are inside you don't hear much which adds to the excitement too.

                I remember as a kid being scared of the Matterhorn yet drawn to it by the screams. I'd hate to think kids nowadays would miss out on that anticipation.

                  Enclose it with what? A big lid on top?

                  I say .... nope! Leave it alone. It was that way in 1967 when I went to DL for my first time, and I cannot imagine it NOT being out there!

                        Interesting idea, but I'm with the others...the Matterhorn benefits from being open in some areas. I like the contrast between the exterior slopes and bridges, the areas that are offer views of the outside but aren't quite "there", and the parts of the track that tunnel into the heart of the mountain. It makes the ride far more interesting. The track layouts are truly fascinating, and they were built with the intention of some areas being inside, some areas being outside, and some being somewhere between. (Yes, the original Matterhorn had a different interior, but the contrast was still intentional, I'm sure.)

                          I think the Matterhorn is pretty great just how it is. I can't think of anything I would add. Maybe get the water falls working again? It will interesting to see what the new sleds do to the ride and over all feel.

                            Matterhorn = fine as is.

                            Screamin' = fine as is or with minor improvement (i.e. music, slight track decorations to enhance the turn-of-the-century boardwalk theme, etc.)

                              I think your idea would be cool for another coaster in another Disney park, but I wouldn't want the Matterhorn to change.
