Good. Let it die.
I'm not sure why people were a fan of this ride. I can think of a few reasons why they loved it:
1. They were masochists and enjoyed waiting in a line for a trip across two lands of the park that would take longer than actually walking the same route.
2. They enjoyed looking at the rooftops of all the buildings that Disney never bothered sprucing up in the first place. Nothing says "Magic" like industrial air conditioning units, tar paper, and pigeon poo!
3. They enjoyed spitting on people.
The best part of the ride (as seen in the picture above) was when your gondola went through the center of the mighty Matterhorn and you came face to face with the abominable snowman. But guess what? You can see this on another ride. It's called the Matterhorn!
There's another reason the Skyway curdles my milk. I live in Utah, and in Utah we have one crappy amusement park called Lagoon. It's essentially a traveling carnival that forgot to leave. But guess what they have? A frikkin' Skyway!
