    Question Matterhorn Closed September 5 - December 14.

    On Mouse Planet they say the Matterhorn will be down from September 5 - December 14 for complete refurbishment. Does anyone now what they are going to do durning these 3 months??? Are they going to add new stuuf or just take stiff down from 50th or just clean the track??

    They are adding new additions to Matterhorn, and also making the structure safe so it doesnt collapes. The matterhorn is old, ya know?

    As cool as it would be to add more effects to the ride, it doesnt need it.

    Darkbeer took a picture of a bunch of old tubing from the track that had been pulled out... let's see if I can find it...

    ...Aha!

    I heard that they were updating the bobsleds with improved safety restraints.

    Totally a rumor, but that would be a nice change.

    I think new track and wheels is all that is needed! The belts have worked for 40+ years !
