Thanks for posting that.... sorry I missed seeing that park

I have a question, did the Alpine Sleigh Ride really have sleighs as was depicted in the concept art?

Thanks. Yes, the Alpine Sleigh Ride had sleighs, but they were not like the ones in the artwork. They were motorized, although I believe that they were gravity-powered on some of the downhill track segments. There are some photos here:
