Matterhorn Bobsleds
Disney attraction portraits #3: Matterhorn Bobsleds Disney's original mountain, home of Harold the yeti. The world's first tubular steel track roller coaster and Disney's first mountain. The Matterhorn has never been replicated (yet anyway) at any other Disney park, though Walt Disney World's Animal Kingdom has a great cover-version known as Expedition Everest. I'd be hard pressed to say which I enjoyed more, the simple fun of the original or the big thrills and high-tech yeti of the newer version. Which one I'd rather draw, though, is easy: I love the look of the white-furred, blue-faced original yeti. And so: here's the Matterhorn!

Oh, and the guy climbing the mountain on the side? They used to have guys actually do that in Disneyland every day. To see a larger version, visit my DeviantArt account.
