    Which bars do you prefer in Disneyland? [on the Matterhorn]

    That is -- on the Matterhorn!

    So I was in Disneyland last night and I was on the Matterhorn. OK, so I normally have to hold on while I'm on that ride or esle I am knocked around worse than Indy inside the fridge. There are two sets of handlebars inside the bobsled to hold on to and there is also a long black bar that sits on the outside of the opening of the bobsled.

    I prefer to grab the outside bar. I notice not too many other people do this. But my arms are really long (37 inches!) and if I grab the inside handlebars I find that my elbows are knocking the interior of the bobsled, making for an uncomfortable ride. Plus I find that grabbing the outside bars enable me to brace myself better for all the jostling around that results from that ride.

    I hope the new bobsleds -- if and when we get them -- has a similar feature or I'm afraid I'll fly out!

    So which bars do you prefer, and why?

    I was unaware there were bars other than the ones inside the bobsled.
    But really, I like bars that serve alcohol. I dont discriminate.

    I prefer The Rainforest Cafe. The Green Python is exceptionally delicious, with Midori, Bacardi, and............ oh sorry. I could care less about the bars on The Matterhorn. The ride is fun either way.

    My shorty arms say inside bars
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    I prefer to talk about the other kind of bars. The candy kind. My favorite is Baby Ruth and my favorite bar at the DLR is Uva.

    Yes, read the question Liz.

    Which bars do you prefer to use when you ride on the Matterhorn?

    Because I always hold the outside black bars but I never see anybody doing that.

    I always go for the side bars in the bobsleds. EDIT: Oh, wait, I'm a noob. Totally didn't read the OP properly. Both bars being described are on the sides. I was referring to the inside--I've never had problems with my arms banging against the sides of the bobsled.
