Since March 2020, Disney Guests have been dying to ride Matterhorn Bobsleds located inside Disneyland Park. This alpine sled attraction in Fantasyland went under some major interior and exterior refurbishments over the last year. Many Disney fans were worried and concerned over the fate of this original attraction but with a bit of Disney magic, Disney Imagineers was able to restore one of Disneyland’s biggest mountains.

Recently, on Twitter, Jennifer Ann couldn’t wait to share with Disney fans that the Matterhorn was up and running today! Although this ride may be very close to Disneyland goers hearts, one complaint still remains as she shares,

Matterhorn soft reopening at #Disneyland today! Missed this grump face but not the whip lash from the ride.

 

Now Disney fan @disney.jose doesn’t have to wait to ride his beloved Matterhorn tomorrow as he shares,

MATTERHORN my favorite ride is reopening today! Captured this pretty sunset over the bobsleds ?

After reviewing the official Disneyland website, surprisingly, times to ride this thrilling attraction were announced today! If you’re still debating whether you can attack this Swiss Alps inspired mountain, check out the description of the ride as Disney states:

Climb into a 6-person bobsled and brace yourself against howling winds as you ascend 80 feet up into an icy cave. Take in the sweeping views at the summit and prepare for a thrilling, high-speed ride.

Swoop in and out of shadowy caves and along jagged rocky ledges. Throttle through snowy chutes and around frozen precipices. Fly across bridges and under waterfalls before splashing down into an alpine lake.

The real peril is not snow or sleet! Stories abound of a growling creature known as the Abominable Snowman—who will do anything and everything to protect his home.

Do you have what it takes to find out if the legends are true?
