Dolly's Dip: The Matterhorn Bobsleds

Have you ever heard anyone refer to "Dolly's Dip" on the Matterhorn Bobsleds? There is a story to go along with legend.

On January 3, 1984, 48-year-old Dolly Regina Young of Fremont, California was thrown from a Matterhorn Bobsleds car and struck by the next oncoming bobsled. An investigation showed that her seatbelt was found unbuckled after the accident. It is unclear whether Young deliberately unfastened her belt or if the seatbelt malfunctioned.

Moral of the story? “Never take off your seatbelt and stand up on a rollercoaster.”

(Dolly's Dip)
