Have you conquered all of the Disney mountains? One iconic mountain may take a little longer to conquer as a refurbishment is now scheduled.
No one really likes to hear that their favorite attraction will be under refurbishment during their trip. Attractions, buildings, and even sidewalks need to be maintained, and refurbishments help the parks run smoothly. Almost every trip you take, you are bound to run into some type of refurbishment.
At Disneyland, guests are invited to climb aboard as they are “hurtled through a snow-capped mountain on a speeding alpine sled while avoiding the clutches of the Abominable Snowman.” That’s right they have a full Abominable Snowman unlike the “Disco Yeti” at Expedition Everest at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
Disneyland shares, “Matterhorn Bobsleds was the first roller-coaster-style attraction at Disneyland Park—and the very first tubular steel coaster in the world. The iconic attraction is also one-of-a-kind—no other Disney park can claim a Matterhorn mountain.”
Now, this iconic mountain will undergo a refurbishment. The Disneyland website shares that Matterhorn Bobsleds will close on August 8th for a refurbishment. Unfortunately, the end date was not given. Guests are simply invited to “check back for updates.” That doesn’t sound like a quick refurbishment.
Matterhorn Bobsleds will be closed for refurbishment starting August 8th with no end date given.
At this time no word has been given about the extent of this refurbishment. The Disneyland calendar currently extends only until the end of August. The Matterhorn Bobsleds show to remain closed for the remainder of August. This is quite disappointing for guests planning to visit the “Happiest Place on Earth” in the coming months.
What do you think of this indefinite closure? Have you enjoyed the Matterhorn Bobsleds? Have refurbishments affected any of your Disney trips? Share your thoughts with us on our Facebook Page.
