The overall ride experience could be better. However it was the world's first steel tubular rollercoaster and is still running strong. Also the theming is spectacular.

Even though this ride was a little bit bumpy, it was still a great ride. The mountain looked amazing. The ride felt a lot faster than I though it would. It is truly a great Disney classic.

A classic! The original Arrow coaster was just as excellent as its looping cousins and hypers.

Although shadowed by the yeti in Expedition Everest over at Animal Kingdom I felt that I really enjoyed the yeti's appearence and felt it was good that I didnt fly past him at 1000 MPH like in expedition everst. I got more of a good look at this one. The ride was very enjoyable too especially the splash down. Definately not to be missed...

Another Disney classic. I thought is ride was fun and funny. I loved the little Yeti on the ride. The ride its self has some good speed and has a little thill factor. I would say this is a great family ride.

I expected a more thrilling ride before I got on, but then I remembered that it was built in the 50s and is no exped. everest. However, I cannot complain about this ride. The first steel tubular track coaster ever, and it is a classic. Its a nice, smooth ride (considering its age), and the theming fits very well. Overall I enjoyed the ride experience. Although I wouldnt be anxious to ride again, its cool to have ridden it at least once and be a part of roller coaster history.
7/10 for a historic classic

I was pleasantly surprised by the Matterhorn Bobsleds. The ride was fun, fairly long, and considerably comfortable especially with it being so old. The theming is obviously dated, though it probably fits the ride better than a million dollar yeti animatronic would anyways. The tunnels that the ride boars through the mountain are pretty tight, and Im a sucker for bobsled style seating. Combining good pacing with lots of sudden movement and thrills and I think Matterhorn is a classic in all regards that should continue to thrill generations to come. What a great start to tubular steel track.

The Matterhorn Bobsleds was a big coaster for the entire industry, and it still delivers a great ride. The mountain looks great and the effects during the ride seem a bit dated, but still do make the ride more exciting. However, the ride was pretty slow for the most part and the helixes had no forces at all and there werent any really good drops in my opinion. The ride was pretty long though and the water splash was certainly my favorite part. Unfortunately the ride has gotten pretty rough over the years.

Good: a pretty wide variety of terrain (steep-seeming lift hill in the dark, ice caves, a bridge, even a minor splashdown at the end), plus some swell sharp turns, and who doesnt love an abominable snowman? Bad: Layout doesnt quite deliver as much as Id hoped, the spiraling turns and dips are less impressive than, say Thunder Mountain RR. And the worlds first steel coaster is showing its age - it rattles you like a poorly maintained woodie (and not in a good way). One of the few disappointments at DL.

I tip my hat to this classic. I waited 3 hours to ride it and was not disappointed. It is a must ride for any coaster fan.
