Matterhorn

Ski from your seat.

The Matterhorn is a legendary mountain in the Swiss Alps summited by some of history’s greatest climbers ever. It’s a grueling and dangerous ascent over 14,000 feet high that isn’t welcoming to amateurs. But why should the world be denied that kind of thrill? They shouldn’t. That’s where the park’s tribute to the fabled mountain comes in. Brace yourself to be pulled in all sorts of direction on an unforgiving trip around Matterhorn. Riders are locked into place inside a two-person cabin and then whipped up and down by centrifugal forces that recreate the feeling of spiraling down the mountain, much like a skier. It may not be a 10-day tour around the ancient trails of the Alps, but a ride of speed and thrill to match it. It’s alpine excitement for those with the utmost sense of adventure. You may not be a master explorer or climber, but when you get off you will definitely feel like one.
