This isn’t a great film, it’s neat and a fun distraction- and there’s some cool steampunk imagery and mystery and danger... and then they arrive at the Island and it all falls apart, even the Vfx. But that first half with the airship and the snowy mountains - I’m a sucker for that. And Joss Wheadon’s dad wrote the script.
MATTERHORN BOBSLEDS (ANAHEIM, Calif.) - The first tubular steel roller coaster opened in 1959 at Disneyland, rising 159 feet over Fantasyland. Guests on the Matterhorn Bobsleds scale the snowy summit in a racing toboggan and speed down the slopes to a sensational splashdown in an Apine pond, while the Abominable Snowman is rumored to be lurking around every turn.
HISTORIC TRIO - Three of the most popular attractions at Disneyland - the Disneyland Monorail, Matterhorn Bobsleds and Submarine Voyage - all debuted on the same day, June 14, 1959.
Growing up in Los Angeles in the 70s/80s we visited Disneyland on a regular basis and often after school, before "Annual Passes".
