Matterhorn Queue, July 1961

If you're ever nostalgic about waiting in line at Disneyland, then this post is for you!

Standing in line is a fact of life at Disneyland, but it is true that your anticipation builds as you wind back and forth, getting closer and closer to your ultimate goal. In this case, the Matterhorn Bobsleds!


Those queues are famously deceptive, often you'll think that you're "almost there", only to find that you are nowhere near the front of the line. That's when I start weeping. It's embarrassing.

I stood in that line for hours. Loved every minute of it.

Are those handles on the outside of the cars?

Yup, those are handles all right. But don't worry, we never scraped our knuckles on the cave walls!

I always appreciate a good Matterhorn picture.

Yes, I LOVED waiting in line for the Matterhorn Bobsleds. The music (available at Visions Fantastic on a request radio) would always be so cheery, I loved the costumes of the helpers, and as you got closer you got a little of the spray and the screaming and the flowers.
