The Matterhorn ride consist of a circular development track with depressions and two “cat’s back”. The rail is supported by a steel horse structure, connected to the central body by radial longeron and tie rods. The whole metal structure is hot-dip galvanised. Twenty cars run along the rail, connected to a central rotor by radial arms (sweeps). The cars swings due to centrifugal force during rotation of the ride. The foot-boards approaching the cars consists of an aluminium tread plate. All electric and pneumatic equipment is fitted inside the central body, on which the central rotor is fixed
Electronically operated lighting is composed of cabochons. The covering canvas is made of fireproof material (class 2) and panelling of the cars are fibreglass made.
The ride moves by means of one self-braking A.C. gear-motors fixed to the central rotor and controlled by Frequency Drive.
