    Re: RCMC # 132 : We're Zany To The Max! So Just Sit Back And Relax !

    Good day all...
    I was kid free on Saturday and went to the parks for the evening. I rode Matterhorn twice but that will be it for that ride for a long time for me. I'm "fluffy" and those seats hurt very much bad. I can't imagine how a skinny person handles it.

    I didn't realize that Space Mountain had re-opened or I would have rode that twice...drat. I guess I'll have to wait until I get kid free again. Maybe in the summer.

    I was surprised about how uncomfortable the Matterhorn was. I hadn't rode it since 1990 when I was a teen and could handle anything, but this time it left me with bumps and bruises and my boyfriend, who had never ridden it before, declined to ride it after we had ridden each track twice because it was to bumpy and painful for him.

    The last refurb of the Matterhorn left the ride uncomfortable for me too. I was stiff the next day like I had been in a car accident.

    Being tall, the Matterhorn has never been totally comfortable to me. But I have seen these comments a few times. Seems they botched an important part of this rehab.
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    Yep, they did a lousy job of designing the bobsleds on the Matterhorn.

    I use to LOVE the Matterhorn. It was about the only roller coaster I actually liked. I haven't ridden it since they changed the bobsleds, but from what I've heard I'm thinking I may not have it has a fav anymore.

    The Matterhorn is right on the edge of wildness for me.

    It's not bad, the scenery is pretty good, but yes, the new bobsleds are way worse than the old ones.

    With the old ones, you sat pretty much straight up; the new ones you have to sit sort of scrunched down, and since there's no padding, your tailbone takes a beating.

    Hi Rex.

    Hi Pengy.

    It rained today. Well, mostly rained.......maybe 1/8" in several hours. At least the ground is wet.

    Plus, I like the smell of wet sagebrush.

    Haven't ridden the new sleds. Of course I go back to the days when the Matterhorn was the only roller coaster type attraction in the place. Two hour waits were not uncommon.
