    Yeah! I thought they might have a single rider option due to the new configuration of the bobsleds. The way they apply the paint and spatter/texture is pretty interesting too. I think I'm more excited about the Matterhorn than Cars Land.

    Re: Behind the Wall: Matterhorn Bobsleds Refurbishment

    I'm super bummed that I won't be able to hold my little one on this ride when we go this fall. I was able to ride with my daughter at the age of 2. My son will finally be tall enough to ride when we go this fall, however I don't think he'll ride in his own seat. Bummer, but oh well. I guess we get to look forward to riding this with him when he gets even bigger.

    The new exterior will be beautiful in a wintery kind of a way. The vibrant new 6-rider cars will be a blast from start to splash down! Can't wait to see the new showboating of the abominable yeti.

    I love this new expansion! But i also sucks that the old matterhorn will just be memories from now on! I loved how the old seats were, idk it just was so cool cause it felt like you were in back in time when it first opened! Different experience but as time moves on we have to deal with changes! :\ I love how they will be painting the mountain! Looks freaking sweat! Are they redoing the track, replacing the metal?

    Everything looks good, I can't wait to try it out.

    Will the actual total possible riders be less per train/car now? 6 instead of 8?

    I've been wanting a Single Rider line for Matterhorn for years! Now with the new configuration of the new bobsleds, its possible!

    Yes. The new bobsleds won't allow seat sharing anymore. Should help the line a bit.

    I'm stoked to see what the refreshed Matterhorn looks like when it comes out of rehab. There's another reason, too, but that'll have to wait until it opens to be explained.

    I am REALLY loving the new paint scheme for the mountain! It's a lot darker and looks more realistic! I was comparing photos of the unveiled section and an older pic and the snow being painted on is a lot more detailed and real looking, also helping out with the forced perspective!
