    Question Where has the wind effect for the Matterhorn gone?

    I visited Disneyland in November of 1998 and distinctly recall hearing wind sound effects for the Matterhorn in the surrounding areas (close to Ariel's Grotto is the most distinct one I recall). When we returned in June of 2001 we were sad to see the ride was down for extensive repairs. When we visited again this past Christmas we were overjoyed that the ride was back up and running but were saddened to find the wind effects did not return.

    First off, does anyone else remember the wind sound effects and secondly, if they were not just an example of my poor memory why did they not return when the ride's refurbishment was complete?

    As far as I know, the wind is still there...and it does add a lot to the ride's atmosphere, so I hope it's never silenced.

    i used to love the wind sounds... i don't think they are still there and if they are they are much quieter than they used to be... i used to hear them at the smoking area by the sub lagoon very distinctly even over all my friends being loud... not anymore... :\

    They are still there. On the Tomorrowland side's track, you'll pass by one of the speakers as you go by Alice in Wonderland before the splash. I do wish the sounds were louder. It gave a LOT to the atmosphere of the area. Now, to tell someone...

    Thanks for the tip...If I make it back to the park I will make sure to go by that speaker and listen closely
