Matt Anderson's Take
The Matterhorn Bobsleds opened in 1959 and has the distinction of being the world's first tubular steel roller coaster. It's been upgraded over the years and remains an excellent hugely popular attraction.

This roller coaster certainly qualifies as a thrill ride and moves pretty fast down the mountain and might be a little bump for smaller kids. On that note, you should be in good health (free of back and neck pain, etc) before riding this ride.

There are two separate tracks so you'll likely be racing another train down the mountain. At the end you're car will actually run through a pool of water that creates a bit of a splash (not likely to get you wet). That dip into the water was put there to slow the vehicle down at the end as well as to cool down the braking fins on the bottom of the ride vehicle. Neat.

There is a single rider line so if you don't mind splitting up with your group you'll be able to get on much faster if the main lines are long.

So much fun though it's far more bumpy than I remember. Am I just getting old?

This a very fun ride with the sudden drops. It is good besides the fact the line is very very long even if you get there early.

A great coaster that ages well. This is a bumpy ride but feels like you're going far faster than you are because of that.

The original coaster is still one of the best.

A classic for sure and one of the best coasters around still. Jerky, bumpy, makes my butt hurt after each ride. But I can't get enough.

The Matterhorn Bobsleds is a fast moving roller coaster. It is a bumpy, jerky ride so if you have back or neck problems you may want to skip this ride.

Fun fun fun! I love this ride. Fast but smooth. A bit loud when the Yeti yells. Then a small splash at the end. I want to go again.
