Just heard a rumour. Not sure if anyone has heard anything about this before. Is there really a basketball court hidden inside the Matterhorn mountain?

Half-court. So, yes.

They have since walled it off and made it a backstage area, so you would need a ride op to tell you if it is still there. But it used to be that if you looked left just before you hit the lift hill, you could see it.
