    I don't know how much it would help, but I'm sure any padding would be more comfortable than what it is now.

    Re: Matterhorn to get refurbished in May

    I vote for a Frozen trackless dark ride or boat ride. As much as it is easy to throw in on the Matterhorn, besides ruining the nostalgia of this fabled mountain, you are going way too fast to see anything except half a second of Harold as it is now so you would pretty much see a blur of Olaf or Elsa or Marshmallow. Also when did they bring the Jack Wagner spiel back? I hope that stays through the refurb.

    Re: Matterhorn to get refurbished in May

    I'm Not sure if it means anything but I checked the map today and when you click on Matterhorn there is no mention of the refurbishment. It could be just a temporary removal from the site, or possibly the refurb is being moved or cancelled. Only time will tell.

    Hopefully it's something to fix those painful sleds.

    It's not just ruining the nostalgia of the mountain. Frozen would clearly be out of place on the Matterhorn.

    I emailed DLR and the dates have now changed.

    "You may be pleased to know that the original project dates in May have been changed to 8/25/14 11/13/14. Please note all information is subject to change without notice and should be confirmed just prior to your visit."

    So no Summer down time which will be great.

    Re: Matterhorn to get refurbished in May

    And time has told. I think it's a much better decision than to have it closed during summer, and closed at the same time as Space Mountain. Hopefully they'll use the downtime for useful purposes and make those new sleds more comfortable. That or it's just a bogus refurbishment and it'll be permanently shut down and turned in to Hoth.

    Re: Matterhorn to get refurbished in May

    How long were the sleds prior to the refurb in use?

    Anyways I haven't ridden the Matterhorn since its refurb but from the stories I have heard it sounds painful.

    I wish tandem seating would be brought back I thought that was cool along with some different kind of sleds that are more comfortable and could fit a tall guy like myself.

    Woohoo! The Matterhorn seems to always be down when we're there, but this may mean that it will be open when we go in June. Thanks for sharing.

    Re: Matterhorn to get refurbished in May

    The new dates mean it will be down if I go the week of Halloween. I'm fine with that, tbh. I can't go on this ride anymore anyway because of the sleds.

    I think the delay is primarily due to timeframe. It makes a lot more sense to not have a major ride like this closed over the summer.
    I wish Frozen would have never been made.
