Hi,
Does anyone have a good picture to email me (personal use) or where I can find one on the webiste
of the Matterhorn crystals?

I can NEVER get that shot, lol!

Thanks

It's not the speed that prevents riders getting shots of the crystals. Ordinary crystals would be easy to shoot, even passing by at 18 mph.

But crystals that emit the telltale tinkling sounds are impossible to photograph because of the specific radiation properties of the crystalline matrices.

Aren't those "Telltale Tinkling Sounds" just the sounds coming from Harold's bathroom?:confused:

I always thought that sound was the sound of the Matterhorn slowly falling into the sinkhole.

They never should have lowered the water level in the sub lagoon by a couple of inches a ways back. It's only a matter of time now.

:confused: I thought they were magic crystals that can't be photographed, much like a vampire has no reflection in a mirror. hehe:D

You may have to do a search on the net, because I think there maybe some old postcard packs that had a picture of the crystals.
