    Question Arrr! Pirate Poll: Matterhorn vs. Castle

    Okay, so nearly every night, Matterhorn and SB Castle are pirates. Suppose they really battle each other on the high seas. Given the "personalities" and attraction attributes, who emerges battlescarred and victorious - and why?

    Given the ferocity of the Abominable Snowman - for we know that the mountain is not inhabited by a Pixar Snowman - Matterhorn would put up a strong and chilling fight. Its cannon fire would pelt and pierce through Castle like icicles. Does Castle stand a chance if everyone is inside is sleeping? Or do the Good Fairies employ their boulder-and-cannon deflecting spells? I think that if the Snowman were to board Castle, Prince Phillip would have a hard time fighting him. Snowman is bigger, more hairy and has a tendency to jump out of shadows with a menacing yell/growl. But he also pretty much just stays in one place... at which point the window display dolls could attack from behind! Your thoughts?

    It's not really the castle, though. The fireworks that retaliate against the Matterhorn are shot from a location on the west side, most likely Frontierland.

    True, but the castle still has a pirate logo on it.

    Re: Arrr! Pirate Poll: Matterhorn vs. Castle

    Im gonna go with the MATTERHORN. It packs a mightier punch. Its bigger, badder and has more clout. Its the only attraction of its kind (dont even bring up Ex.Everest cause its not the same at all) in any Disney theme park. Its solo. It doesnt need any allies. It can take care of itself. and judging by the way it takes thrashes and beats-up and its daily passengers its no wonder that this swiss sensation stands alone at the summit of its own peaks!
    The castle on the other hand, while it may be pretty in pink, magical, whymsical, romantic and cute. its routine duplication, in many forms, leaves the heavy hitting to its bigger and younger apprentices. the castle is distinguished, yes, but lacks the drive and brute strength that embodies the matterhorn. in my view the castle is the mob boss who stays hidden in the secret layer, while the hynch men do the dirty work. and we all know that as soon as the good guys finds out where the mob boss is hiding he is quickly and effortlessly defeated.
    All hail the matterhorn!

    The Matterhorn is younger and can just step on the castle. It's not a fair fight. The castle's magic has waned since the walkthrough closed ........

    The Matterhorn Frosts the castle's cookies!! In other words the Matterhorn wins big time. The matterhorn is more daring because it takes the first shot.

    Yep! The Matterhorn becomes the "Splatterhorn" whin it ices the Castle into kingdom come. It's simply my favorite all-time landmark.

    But what happens if the Matterhorn trips over the Monorail as it tries to pounce on the Castle .......

    Re: Arrr! Pirate Poll: Matterhorn vs. Castle

    ?? Your kidding right? Wouldn't the Matterhorn be neutral? It is Swiss. Thus leaving the castle to defend against ZURG, the Empire, and whatever evil aliens hail from space mountain. I don't think a few swords and shields are going to hold up against that. Better call in some help from Frontierland.
