Matterhorn Bobsleds Refurbishment Coming Soon


A fan favorite, the Matterhorn Bobsleds, will be undergoing a short refurbishment next month and into March. If your trip to the Disneyland Resort falls between February 28 – March 5th, you will not be able to experience this high-speed, thrilling attraction.

The Matterhorn Bobsleds are on the Disneyland website as:

Climb into a 6-person bobsled and brace yourself against howling winds as you ascend 80 feet up into an icy cave. Take in the sweeping views at the summit and prepare for a thrilling, high-speed ride. 

Swoop in and out of shadowy caves and along jagged rocky ledges. Throttle through snowy chutes and around frozen precipices. Fly across bridges and under waterfalls before splashing down into an alpine lake. 

The real peril is not snow or sleet! Stories abound of a growling creature known as the Abominable Snowman—who will do anything and everything to protect his home. 

Do you have what it takes to find out if the legends are true?

The 147 foot tall Matterhorn Bobsleds opened on June 14, 1959 at the Disneyland Resort. It was the first roller coaster at Disneyland and the first tubular steel coaster in the world.
