It's a great roller coaster especially for being so old but just be on notice that it is very rough on the back.

The first steel-tube roller coaster in the world remains the best, and it's at the original Disney theme park. Even with the slight evolutions and adjustments that have come with years of being a favorite ride in Disneyland (such as the addition of an abominable snow man), this thrilling simulation of a bobsled race in and out and down the face of the Matterhorn is still my favorite roller coaster. Disclaimer: Yes, I've been to Universal Hollywood, to Cedar Point, to Six Flags Magic Mountain, Sea World San Diego, and all four Walt Disney World Parks; yes, it's better than Rockin' Rollercoaster and Everest! Trust me, it's worth the price of an Anaheim vacation.
