THE MATTERHORN BOBSLEDS.

DVD_TheMatterhornBobsleds[DVD: Theme Parkology – 2015 – 43 mins]. In 1958 while Walt Disney was producing the film, Third Man on the Mountain, in Switzerland, he stumbled on an idea for a new attraction. After being mesmerized by the Matterhorn Mountain he quickly decided that a Matterhorn coaster ride would be perfect for his new Disneyland park (Anaheim, California), so he sent Disney Imagineer, Vic Greene a two-word message: “Build this!” This DVD journeys through the tracks of one of Disneyland’s most loved attraction, The Matterhorn Bobsleds. The programme covers the history of the rides’ concept, its construction, its opening day and the many changes that have occurred to the icy mountain through the years. It also features a detailed interview with Disney Legend and Imagineer, Bob Gurr, who designed the layout of the tracks. ANDY SHINE SAYS: I found this programme to be most interesting and informative. I certainly learned a few things. ANDY SHINE’S RATING: Good / Recommended.
