|The Matterhorn, in the daytime. (Taken from the Alice in Wonderland ride)|
First, the bobsleds were being brought off the ride, emptied of riders, and rapidly stored down front. I discovered that the secondary track just behind the primary track (which you can see in the picture below) has a moving section (the part with the railing) which could shuttle the cars between the two tracks.
But eventually, the ride started up, and I got loaded on. I had a brief struggle trying to figure out how to sit in the new seats, which are still completely flat on the floor of the vehicle, but eventually figure out there was space for my feet up under and to the side of the seat in front. (You're kind of still sitting in each others' laps, but everyone actually has their own seat.) I discovered later that I have a much harder time in the front seat, which doesn't really have any nifty "feet slots". And The Matterhorn is really pretty spectacular at night, since you get a (fast) view from above the park, and can see all sorts of wonderful lit up scenes from It's a Small World, and parts of Fantasyland or Tomorrowland. It's visually stunning at night, as well as a fun ride.
