The Parks Academy - Discussing All Things Disney & Theme Parks

In this episode, we discuss the history of the Matterhorn Bobsleds in Disneyland Resort. Come with us as we barrel down this Swiss wonder's sharp turns and rough terrain. We uncover the origins of Disney's "Lovers Lane" turned "Snow Hill" turned Matterhorn. Turns out, there really is a Basketball court inside the mountain, and we'll tell you which track is longer. Stay till the end to hear Paige talk about High School Musical theories.
