    The Matterhorn was closed due to remodeling. But that's not all of the story! Please do not read this article alowd if there are children around. The Disneyland Matterhorn claimed 2 lifes! According to sorces, The Matterhorn turned into a crime scene.
    First story not as graphic as the secound is about a colledge boy and a few friends. One night they wanted to ride The Matterhorn while in Disneyland. When they got on the ride everything was fine until one of the guys wanted to streach his legs out so he stood up, if you remember...The Matterhorn's riding carts pass by each other, apparently he was somehow hit by a speeding cart and was found dead a few tracks down. If you thought this was graphic this next story will shock you!
    A middle aged woman also wanted to ride The Matterhorn. She got seated in her cart while CM's checked that she was buckled in and that same CM told sorces that she was safely buckled in. Somehow at one part of the ride she was umbuckled and thrown out of her cart by strong ride turbulances. She landed on another set of tracks, then her life came to a crushing death! A cart called "The Bullet" crushed her on the tracks and wasn't able to move any further....it was stuck on her now mangled body. All of Fantasyland was closed due to "technical diffuculties"for the rest of the day.......... really Disneyland was hiding a horrific crime scene from curious patrons.
    According to other sources, Disneyland Is remodeling The Matterhorn so carts will not pass by each other (a remodel that could have saved the boy in story one).

    Mixed fable. I doubt anything like this happened and Disney kept it quiet. Al Lutz would be all over this by 12pm of that day.

    While I appreciate your input, in all honesty I do not believe what your sources have been telling you. I would ask that you refrain from sharing these mixed tales of death on the News/Rumors Board, which in all honesty, and with due respect, are rather morbid.

    Yes, there have been 2 deaths on the Matterhorn, but they are not recent.

    Thanks for your imput. I was cautious not to read the stories alowd. The one about the colledge kid is awful. All he wanted to do was streatch his legs? Doesn't that stink. And the other one, I've always worried about my belt coming umbuckled as well. Tell your sorces thanks for me.

    Actually, you wrote down embellishments and exaggerations, and hopemax corrected them. The deaths on the Matterhorn happened along time ago. They were public knowledge and have been been well documented for a very long time. There is no chance that these accidents are the cause of the Matterhorn rehab.

    And here I thought it was because the soles of those that have died had reincarnated themselves as Harry the Snow Monster and were plotting to kill other Disneyland guests.

    That was an interesting link to the Disneyland deaths. Is there one for Disneyworld?
    Reading about the Matterhorn makes me wonder why they don't have better restarints in space mountain. The whoel time I was on it I was so freaked out because I was afraid my 5 year old would stand up and fall out.:(
