    What effects are rumored to be added to Matterhorn?

    Does anyone know what enhancements might be added when Matterhorn goes down for 6 months? Is it just changing the ride vehicles or will there be new effects?

    Re: What effects are rumored to be added to Matterhorn?

    I've heard rumors of a new yeti animatronic. I would love them to redo the queue though. That would make it more immersive and could help tell the story. Maybe they will do some projections on the lift hill showing a yeti hiding behind a snow drift off in the distance. That would help build up the suspense. But all I've heard for sure is that the imagineers would like to do more than just replace track/ change out cars if they can get the funding.

    As far as I have heard, nothing. But that makes it even better if they do update!

    The problem with the queue is that you can watch the submarines and autopia cars wiz past while waiting to go on a bobsled ride through the Swiss mountains. It kind of destroys the atmosphere of the ride. Honestly though I never even notice how little theme it has until I went on Expedition Everest. The level of detail on that ride puts the original Disney mountain's queue to shame. Whether they change it or not it will always be my favorite ride.

    I haven't heard what the new enhancements will be but they are coming. Disney is going to try to add as much as they can fit within the budget restraints.

    So turn the other direction. That way you only see the mountain.

    i know i heard they are redoing the line portion for loading purposes and re painting the mtn. that's all I've heard or read somewhere I'm not sure if this is fact or rumor but sounds accurate to me.

    Come on, come on, come on

    Let everyone hear it,
    So come on, come on

    Possibly a new AA is all that I've read around here, but I'm sure that wouldn't be the only thing. But I think the refurb will be good enough with the new ride vehicles!!!

    But yes, Expedition Everest's queue is so much fun, it really helps pass the time just looking at all the interesting stuff and gets you pumped even more for the ride. Matterhorn isn't on the level of EE but still, it would be nice to see some touches, but because the line wraps around the mountain I doubt there is much they could do with the actual queue itself (at least extensive work).
    "Up" is a relative concept. It has no intrinsic value.

    A new queue would be nice, but lets be realistic... how much could they do, they don't really have a lot of room, and the line just wraps around the mountain.

    They could go the route they did for Jungle Cruise with a second level for the queue which would eliminate the wrapping around the mountain. They could then place hiking gear/ bobsledding equipment in roped off areas with maybe a EE style yeti history photos/ memorabilia. They could take up some of the walkway in front of the entrance out to the yeti footprint and include that area into the queue I think that would allow for a large enough queue.

    The queue is fine.

    From what I'v heard, they are repainting the mountain and installing the new sleds. If Tony Baxter's proposals go through, we may be seeing new yeti AAs and new projection effects around the mountain.
