More Matterhorn

Oops - this didn't post like it was supposed to earlier last week:

Matterhorn

Matterhorn facts:
- This is where Tinkerbell takes off from on her nightly dash through the sky during the fireworks. In case you didn't know, that's what all the lines overhead are for. (Fun fact: I know one of the fireworks Tinkerbells. She's been doing it for at least six years now).

- There is indeed a basketball half court inside the Matterhorn.

- Walt Disney conceived the idea for the attraction when visiting Switzerland during filming of his film, Third Man on the Mountain.

- It was the first tube steel-track roller coaster in the world when it premiered in 1959.
