    Looks interesting. I'm still not sold on the new sleds. I just hope they retain their "sled-i-ness". I don't want it to feel like I'm riding a rollercoaster. But I have high hopes

    Beautiful! Reminds me of the new monorails; stylish, modern, yet retro and nostalgic. Theyre so much better than old sleds and look more like the original ones. Red is nice. Would be cool to have red sleds on FL side and blue on TL side

    see, for some of us, our nether regions like the current version cause its the 1 ride where couples get to sit a little more intimately then on the other rides.

    Single file and one person per seat, like Space Mountain in Magic Kingdom.

    Or multiple color schemes. Didn't the original versions have varying color schemes?

    I'm pretty sure the new sleds are set up like Splash Mountain's logs: Individual seats, single-file. For some reason it's hard to tell from the pictures.

    Great job, dland_lover for prompt pic posting!

    Re: Testing new Materhorn Bobsleds right now!!

    Just been wondering will the height requirement be changed with the new ride vehicles?? We took may Daughter who is 3 next month and she LOVED materhorn, would hate to take her again and not be able to ride it.




    This one time on Friends . . .

    I'm pretty sure that they're doing the new bobsleds on the second phase of the refurb early next year.

    There's only one set of sleds on the track at this moment. All of the old sleds are still there. I have a feeling this was more to make sure it worked fine with the new track, as well as to test any modifications they might have made since they tested the previous one.
