    Remember...Fireworks NOT on Matterhorn!

    When did the fireworks stop firing off from the Matterhorn!? Who knows what happened cause Remember, Dreams Come True is just not the same now that the shots for Pirates are coming from Toontown.

    Oy.

    Thanks.

    Maybe they're fixing it?

    Re: Remember...Fireworks NOT on Matterhorn!

    Hmm. Is that why the Matterhorn has been remaining open during the fireworks show? I thought it was odd that bobsleds were still running during the show last week.

    I think it has to do with wind conditions.

    I'm guessing that foremost it's an issue of safety.

    Dang, I hope they are back to the way they started the show when I'm there Jun 29-Jul 3rd. I haven't seen them yet.

    I second the "wind conditions" comment. I have heard that before. The wind UP THERE is totally different than ground level.

    I'm guessing/hoping wind.. I also just watched a new fantasmic video on mousetimes, and the river didnt light up into flames.. So it's probably either just a glitch there trying to fix, or wind conditions.

    The Matterhorn does not shut down for the fireworks and they will not use the in park pirate's shells if the winds are to strong.

    Are you sure? I've encountered the Matterhorn Bobsleds temporarily closed around the time of the fireworks numerous times. Usually, just as the show is winding down or just as it ended. Maybe it was just closed to get Tink down, but I dont know... I thought they closed the Matterhorn for the fireworks though ...

    If they're launching shells off the structure, just as they are in Fantasyland, why wouldn't they need to close it?

    Honestly though, I don't know...

    well, not once but a few times I have seen soldering mortar shells in some of the trees around matterhorn, that could be a fire hazzard also possibly the cause for no more fireworks shooting off the Matterhorn.
