Which Disneyland ride has a hidden basketball court inside it?

Matterhorn Bobsleds

Disneyland’s Matterhorn is best known for its bobsled-like roller coaster that twists down the giant peak. But few people outside the park know that deep inside the 147-ft. mountain contains a hidden basketball court.

After construction of the Matterhorn was completed in 1959, the roller coaster occupied the bottom two-thirds of the mountain, while the top third remained empty. Disney employees voted to put in a basketball court. Because a regulation court wouldn’t fit inside the mountaintop, only one hoop was installed.

The Matterhorn Bobsleds is a ride composed of two intertwining steel roller coasters, which opened in 1959 at Disneyland in Anaheim, California. It is modelled after the Matterhorn, a mountain in the Alps on the border with Switzerland and Italy. It is the first tubular steel continuous track roller coaster known.
