    In 1959 what was the highest point a guest could climb to?

    I need some help figuring this out. I think it's the Fantasyland Skyway station. What says you?

    Which was higher? Castle Rock on TSI or the Skyway Sation?

    Actually... looking at pictures of Castle Rock it doesnt appear to be that high at all.

    I don't know what the highest point was that you could climb to, but if I'm not mistaken, in 1959 the Matterhorn was in fact the tallest structure in all of Orange County.

    Probably the Matterhorn. A guest CAN climb the mountain, but MAY not. So if you're talking about the highest point a guest could get without breaking any rules, I don't know.

    I believe it's Tom Sawyer's Treehouse. I remember reading that it was the tallest structure in Disneyland at one point.

    well maybe they can't climb it but they can ride the matterhorn and it had a lot more holes to look out of, that and actually riding the skyway were the highest points you could get to and look around the area from, you just couldn't get there by foot.

    Prior to the opening of the Matterhorn, Tom Sawyer's Treehouse was the highest point in the park and it was noted as such on the original maps. After the Matterhorn openend, that statement was removed from the map.
