(Oops! I messed up my blogger dates, and actually had no post for today; fortunately I could just change the "publish" date on a post that I had ready for next week and post it today. My brain….)
The cheerful little Matterhorn chalet that can be found at the load area for the mountain bobsled ride has not changed very much over the years. As far as I know! How many buildings in Switzerland have bell towers on them, besides churches? Too many, that's how many! Ringing bells = avalanches, so I am against them (even though a lot of angels won't get their wings - tough luck, angels). I can almost hear accordions and yodeling as I look at these photos - because I bumped my head really hard.
You can see the track to our left where the bobsleds would splash down, which is super cool. We need more roller coasters that splash down. Originally Walt Disney wanted the bobsleds to actually slide down icy slopes, which turned out to be impractical (and probably super dangerous), but I wish they had figured out a way to make that work.
