I never got to experience the single bobsled (as far as I know...) so I can't make a comparison. From the pictures, the single bobsled looks better to me, but I'll take a shorter line instead of looking more realistic!
I dont understand why people complain about how bumpy it is when the whole purpose of it is to be thrilling. They do this to Indy and I hate that also because the ride used to be so much better when it jolted you around.
No way!! That would cut ride capacity in HALF, and I love that Matterhorn is one of the few e-tickets you can get on to in less than a half hour, even if you're wrapped almost all the way around the mountain.
THe ride is rough and jerky, and it totally feels like you're going to fly off the tracks. I like that about it. My roommate hates it. So, I tell her that I saw a part fly off our bobsled, and she freaks out. And I laugh a lot. It's fun.
I've ridden it both ways and if memory serves, it was not too different a ride than it is now. I prefer the look of a single car, but capacity needs are not to be trifled with, especially as the 50th gets going and the crowds come in droves.
