    Disneyland Thursday - Let's talk about Mountains

    So which Disneyland Mountain is your favorite.?

    Mine is Splash Mountain. I don't do roller coasters. Basically they scare me. I wasn't able to ride Splash Mountain, until I saw it on the Travel Channel. They had lengthy footage of it. I had it on video, and kept watching the part where they went down the drop. I said, I can do that and I did. THe first Splash Mountin I rode, was actually at WDW. I rode Splash Mountain at Disneyland, when I was there for the Anniversary. I just love that ride. It is just thrilling enough for me, the big chicken.

    I count four mountains. Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain and of course the Matterhorn.

    I really enjoyed watching Mickey climb the Matterhorn. I often wonder why the Matterhorn was built in Fantasyland? Does anyone know that?

    Let's talk about the Mountains.

    Oh this is a hard question......

    I think the Matterhorn due to the fact I can see it when driving not tha t I drive anymore but, it does makes me think of the park from a far.

    Well, seeing as the castle was based on a Bavarian castle, and the Alps are partially in Bavaria ..... and most of the Fantasyland rides are themed to Euro-centric stories ..... makes sense to me ........

    Anyone notice that the Matterhorn did not sink when they drained the sub lagoon?

    Splash is my favorite ride .......

    Big Thunder is better at night ...........

    Without employing special breathing techniques (in thru nose, out thru mouth), Space would make me HURL! But I keep riding it ........

    The matterhorn would be my fave in terms of the ride inside.

    Space Mountain is my fave in terms of night lighting.

    I love Splash Mountain at night. I like the ambience of it. I always like it when the fireworks are going off and you get a glimpse of it right before you go past sleeping Brer Bear. Space Mountain will always be my favorite for indoor coaster. Cannnot wait for Rockit Moutain!

    Re: Disneyland Thursday - Let's talk about Mountains

    I love these threads - good job Barbaraann!

    Ours is probably Matterhorn - mainly because it is unique to DL and is themed extremely well. Wish the coaster was a little less bumpy, but it is a great ride nonetheless and one of our faves.

    Re: Disneyland Thursday - Let's talk about Mountains

    oh I love Big thunder, and I love splash! but I really love the roller coaster! I was never able to do coasters, never and told my self never in this life time. But I was so amazed when I decided to do it one time ( to say I did one LOL! ) and california screaming was so easy, smooth and so fun I had to do it 3 times in a row! Oh man, I am so goin g to ride that ride til I drop when I go back in April!
    But back to mountains ( we have so many here and around my home I love big thunder the best, its awsome!!

    Re: Disneyland Thursday - Let's talk about Mountains

    Last night my group and I made it a point to ride on all the mountains....and I think Space Mountain will always be my favorite, with the Matterhorn a close second. Too many good memories on both rides. :-)

    Matterhorn is probably my favorite, followed closely by Space Mountain and Splash. Actually, I love all the mountains.

    Hard to choose...As much as I love Space Mountain, I'd have to pick the Matterhorn.

    I just love the Matterhorn. I think I've photographed it pretty much from all sides at this point.

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...
