You know you’re an internet geek that loves Disney’s Splash Mountain attraction, when…you decide to bring meme faces to put in front of your faces for the drop shot. We have rounded up eighteen more cool and crazy stages Disney Splash Mountain photos for your viewing enjoyment. Continue reading to see them all – plus three bonus videos of the attraction around the world.
Bonus Video 1- Splash Mountain Disneyland, California
All of the rides feature the same scenes and a nearly identical layout. The story of “Br’er Rabbit Leaves Home” is told in the dark ride segment on the meandering river. The flume converts to a roller coaster-style track in complete darkness to transition to “The Laughing Place” caverns. After Br’er Rabbit is captured, the logs ascend up the attraction’s predominant hill into the “Tar-Baby” segment. Br’er Rabbit, now captured by Br’er Fox, tricks the villain to throw him into the briar patch; the drop itself mimicks Br’er Rabbit fall. The log descends down a fifty-six foot drop into a briar patch before continuing back into the mountain, where numerous audio-animatronic animals sing a rousing chorus of “Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah.”
Bonus Video 2 – Splash Mountain Walt Disney World, Florida
Without a Critter Country in Walt Disney World, Splash Mountain is instead located in Frontierland, across the way from Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. Construction of Splash Mountain necessitated the demolition of the existing railroad station and temporarily turning the railroad into a shuttle between Main Street, U.S.A. and Mickey’s Toontown Fair.
Bonus Video 3 – Splash Mountain Tokyo Disneyland, Japan
Splash Mountain at Tokyo Disneyland is very similar to the Florida version of the ride, with a few exceptions. The ride’s layout is a mirror image of Florida’s owing to the attraction’s location on the opposite side of the river. The secondary characters are altogether different and the show scenes are in different orders. The Tokyo version also lacks a mill or barn-like structure on the second lift. Instead, the logs venture into a cave-like opening to begin the second ascent. Another difference from the Florida version is that the Slippin’ Falls drop takes place in a dark cave, making the final drop the only outdoor one.
