  • left or right side for the matterhorn

    With all of the things being discussed lets have some fun. What side of the Matterhorn do you like to ride on? I've always liked the left side. I think it's faster. Anybody?

          If we’re looking at the loading, then the right. As I recall, the left side is too rough.

            Left, since its a mored varied layout compared to the mostly smooth right side.

            Last time I was able to ride both sides back to back(via single rider), which made the ride even more fun!

              Yup..definitely agree with you here. Just to confirm, your referring to the "left side" TomorrowLand side (by the subs) correct?

                    One of each.

                    But we've always believed that the 'Tomorrowland side' is longer and faster. That belief goes back to the '60s and I WILL NOT BE MOVED!!!!

                      Matterhorn at night is always recommended, in my opinion.

                        I don’t ride often enough to notice a difference, I guess for me it’s a tie.
                        I also like to ride early in the morning, may be less thrilling than at night but I like the cool air and sunshine that time of day. Good conditions for enjoying an outdoor coaster on a fake mountain.

                          The left or Tomorrowland side for me. It has that one drop half way through the ride...on the left side you jump out of your seat but not on the right, feels faster on the left.

                          I just always asked to go left if I could
                          Happy Halloween!!!

                            Right side. Only the right side. For ever and ever more, the Right. Side.

                            The reason: as a grade school kid when the Matterhorn was new, the screams echoing from the left side sounded enormously more terrified than the right side. I mean Night-of-the-Living-Dead-Eat-Your-Brains terror (remember, this was before Six Flags). Making it worse, a friend staggered out of the exit, shaky, trembling, looking like he was going to puke, stammering: "Don't ride the left side! Don't ride the left side! Left side? DEATH!" That sealed the deal -- I procrastinated getting on either side, using the excuse that I didn't have enough E Tickets. I didn't ride the Matterhorn until high school, and then it was only the right side.

                            It wasn't until college that my friend confessed he'd been bs'ing me. But by then it was too late -- Left Side Terror had been indelibly imprinted on my brain. To this day, all I know is...
























                            Left Side = Death

                              It's old school -growing up
                              On the Matterhorn, I been told by many Cast Members that the right is better.......
                              and I also believe that being true.
                              But - same tokens
                              I also look and see which side had the shortest line

                                        The right side affords a better view of Harold's hoard (or in previous years, the crystals).
