More on Matterhorn Bobsleds

Few Disney rides are as iconic and legendary as Matterhorn Bobsleds. The ride opened way back in 1959 and was Disneyland‘s first roller coaster. The ride takes Guests on the famous “Swiss Alps” as they weave, bob and turn, dodging a few mysterious creatures along the way. The ride is one of the many centerpieces of Disneyland and has provided millions of Guests with an unforgettable, thrilling, and sometimes even “back-breaking” experience.

Disney describes this beloved classic as follows:

Conquer the Mountain – and a Mythic Monster

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?
