Last month, one of Disneyland Resort’s most iconic attractions — Matterhorn Bobsleds — closed for refurbishment. When the ride closed down, Disney did not say how long the refurbishment would last, which indicated that it would be a more extensive refurbishment. The closure was a big disappointment for Guests who would be traveling to The Happiest Place on Earth for the peak summer month.
The Matterhorn has been closed since August 8 with no reopening date in sight. However, that has changed and Disney has finally revealed that the beloved Disney Park attraction will begin boarding Guests on October 13!
The Disneyland Resort website currently reads:
Matterhorn Bobsleds will be closed for refurbishment from August 8 to October 13, 2022.
Haven’t taken the wild theme park ride to see the Yeti in a while? Here’s more information on the classic Disneyland attraction:
Conquer the Mountain – and a Mythic Monster
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?
This is not the first time this year that Disney has shut down the Matterhorn Bobsleds for refurbishment. In January, the ride was closed for weeks as repairs were made. Since this is one of the oldest rides in the Park, it does make sense that it would need work done on a more constant basis than some of the newer rides and attractions at both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure.
Disney Dining will keep readers updated if any changes are made to the Matterhorn’s reopening date.
