Matterhorn Bobsleds, ca. 1987 [Explore]

One of the attractions I was most excited about when returning to Disneyland this year was the Matterhorn. I had last been to Disneyland, and on the Matterhorn, about 25 years ago. I can't remember the exact year, but I think I was roughly 10 years old. I remember being slightly intimidated by the huge mountain and a bit apprehensive during my first ride, but I loved it! The Matterhorn now has a special place in my memories because it's one of the first roller coasters that I can remember conquering.

 

When I saw this attraction again this year, it brought back so many memories. The most vivid memory was walking through the park at night just starring up at the mountain, but I didn't remember all of the little details during the ride. That being said, this area was a bit of a surprise when we got so close to the other track. It really did feel like you could reach over and high five someone in the passing train!
