    Matterhorn Opens

    So, Matterhorn got new lighting and vehicles. That's it. Here's video. - Tom Corless - Twitvid

    It appears the soft openings have begun. Here is a video from DisneylandNewsToday's twitter.

    Re: Matterhorn Opens

    As of 3:30 pm today they were not running with guests.
    But, the walls are down and they said that they will be open tomorrow.
    There were a lot of people working on it, but it was not running with passengers.

    Very cool! Soft openings are great.

    Is that new water I see in the splashdown lakes?

    Re: Matterhorn Opens

    I rode it. recorded it in hd. I will post it when i get home.

    Update:

    Here's a video that I recorded last night during the soft opening of Matterhorn in HD. I stood in line at 7:30 and by the time I got to ride it, it had already turn to night. I knew I should stand in the single rider line.

    We saw a CM riding it today, and the guys knees were up to his chest. I didn't see how tall he was when he got off, but he was crunched for sure.

    No one else looked that way, so he could have been really tall.

    This does not bode well for me. :/

    Matterhorn was always the one ride where I had NO legroom issues. Now? ........ I'm worried it'll be too cramped and
    I won't really be able to ride (this is one of my favorite attractions).

    Re: Matterhorn Opens

    I'm very disappointed with these changes, the new bobsled design just kills it for me. Not only that but they had all this time to refurb the show and did absolutely nothing to enhance it. I do like the paint job however, it makes the mountain look a lot more realistic.

    Positives:
    New seat belt
    Updated look

    Negatives:
    Tall people can't ride
    Short children can't ride
    Couples and families can't ride together
    Decreased fun factor and memories for all ages

    Neutral:
    Capacity stays relatively the same
