this!i think there is a bigger picture that is not being seen with the matterhorn queue. I think it is one of the most creative that disney has come up with. The queue is the mountain itself. There is no other mountain at disneyland where you are able to circle the entire mountain from that close. It gives you an angle where you can really experience the forced perspective of the design. Standing there at that angle it really gives you a sense that the mountain is just enourmous. I think that it really builds the anticipation for the ride.
