Howdy fellow theme park fans!

Yeah, yeah...I know. I've been bad. Well, if its any consolation, I feel bad.

My hit counter has consistent numbers so, I'm aware that I must be creating disappointment. Trust me, I will pick things up.

Going through some slides tonite, I found this rather nice Matterhorn interior from 1980.

Seeing it's icy cool chunkiness made me realize how much that view is missed and of course, the attraction that allowed that killer view.

Next to world peace, racial harmony and the Never-Ending Gobstopper, I wish for the return of the Skyway.

Awlrighty, I'll gladly trade in any two for the Skyway.

Damn you, bittersweet fate!

Great interior shot, Jordan! Where does the Peoplemover rate on your list? Above or below the gobstopper?

The Skyway used to be the best place to smoke a doobie, especially when you got a rush just as you were entering the Matterhorn!

-- or so I've been told.

Awsome shots! I miss that view sooo much too.

Wish I had a chance to smoke some doobie on there.

Great pictures. I think I mentioned this somewhere but just is case...There is also a great video on of the buckets from 1985 that goes through the Matterhorn - it's very well-done.

Each time I look in the pickle barrel, it's the same old pickles!

The same old brine at the bottom of the barrel is beginning to turn rancid...

Hey, Jordan. I loved your show on 1.FM. I was wondering if you might contact me - I'm a huge collector of Disneyland audio and am looking for a few select tracks you may or may not have.

The Skyway's trip through the Matterhorn always scared me as a kid because of Harold. I wish the Skyway was back, too!
