    The refurbs they had scheduled originally, before Space and the others were closed unexpectedly, were only going to be about ten days in total - two sets of weekdays. They could possibly swing that, and there's precedent for their closing two coasters at once - they will be doing that with Space (closed for a few days in August for Ghost Galaxy prep) and BTMRR this August.

    I believe Space closes in early/ mid September usually for a day or two only.

    yeah, I was thinking of Haunted Mansion I think - but it IS a few days; last year it was Sept 10 - 13. The point remains that Space and BTMRR will both be out for at least a few days.

    Agreed and life will go on. So like you said it's possible they could close Matterhorn and BTMRR at the same time.

    Re: Matterhorn refurbishment this summer?

    I was at the park today, and asked the Cast Member when I was exiting the ride (on the Tomorrowland side) if the bobsleds were going down for a short refurb this summer. The CM said yes, but they didn't know when yet-- they hadn't been told. He also said the two-week refurb would be regular maintenance (he said the same maintenance happens every year), and that it had nothing to do with changing the seating or vehicles themselves.

    Well, I guess my protest of this ride will continue. I won't ride again until they swap out the sleds.

    Re: Matterhorn refurbishment this summer?

    I went on it again last week with the idea that maybe they really aren't as bad as I remembered them being post refurb. I told myself I wouldn't go on it again until some padding or alterations were done to the sleds....they still hurt.
