    Ok So What Do You All Think Is Going To Happen With The Matterhorns Bobsleds?

    Do you think they would get replaced? I'm hearing around people do not like the new sleds and that the ride is still very shaky/bumpy.

    You all wernt kidding when you said there isn't enough room. I saw soem video's and wow, looks really cramped :/

    Being 6'4" I am not looking forward to trying to squeeze into one of these when we go next week.

    We'll see though

    6'4" here too and it was not comfortable at all. Big thumbs down being closed that long and it being rougher than ever.

    I loved how with the old sleds, especially me being a short piece of Pooh at 5'5, I could lean back and relax and have fun at the same time during the ride.

    But also with everyones knees up that high just looks ridiculous.

    seems like they would have kept the same seat and just added the seat belts into a re-designed similar sled.

    Yeah I agree the new plastic seating felt uncomfortable. On the plus side, I happy with the new Single Rider line

    5'6 was a bit uncomfortable in the middle of 3 seats but manageable very fast though was actually scary at how fast it was going

    You are all starting to worry me. You see... I'm 7 feet tall.

    Just kidding... I'm 6'1", but it still sounds like I'm gonna be cramped in those things. The mountain looks great though.

    If you're really tall, avoid rows 1 and 4. The other rows have just an extra bit of feet room around the butt of the person in front of you. That extra space isn't there in the front of the sleds.

    I actually didn't notice the ride itself being more uncomfortable in the new seats, but the lack of leg room is just nuts. I'm only 5'3 and it was a bit cramped. My 6'3 bf was miserable.

    While I can see them eventually getting new sleds that actually don't injure tall people :-P the ride itself doesn't other me. It's a BOBSLED it's supposed to be pretty bumpy

    It's not the height that's the biggest problem, it's a really rough ride and the seats are not padded at all. For a man the pain is just.......nuts.
