Disneyland’s fan-favorite Matterhorn attraction will be closed for refurbishment on weekdays over the next couple of weeks.
The announcement of a refurbishment comes just a couple of months after the mountainside of the Matterhorn attraction broke loose back in August and prompted the attraction to close. A large portion (reportedly the size of a bedroom door) of the Matterhorn mountain reportedly broke loose and forced the attraction to close one of its two tracks. The Matterhorn Bobsleds typically operates with two tracks running simultaneously (one facing Tomorrowland and the other facing Fantasyland), but since a portion of the rockwork needed repair, Disneyland had to close one side of the attraction, although the repairs are more cosmetic than mechanical.
“During overnight maintenance, a portion of decorative rockwork was found to be in need of repair, which we are working quickly to make,” Disneyland officials stated back in August shortly after the accident occurred.
