Happy Birthday Matterhorn Bobsleds!

This week’s Wordless Wednesday post is a birthday celebration for one of my favorite attractions {Yes, I have a lot of them…}, the Matterhorn Bobsleds.

The Matterhorn Bobsleds opened on June 14, 1959.  What’s amazing to me is that the Matterhorn was not the original theme!  According to the Disneyland website, Walt Disney fell in love with the Matterhorn while filming the Third Man on the Mountain in 1959.  When he got back to Disneyland, he changed direction on the project that was in process.

The Matterhorn Bobsleds attraction is currently undergoing refurbishment, and the reopening date is currently scheduled for its birthday, June 14, 2012.
