Splash Mountain
Magic Kingdom - Frontierland

Splash Mountain, a popular flume ride at Magic Kingdom Theme Park, offers big thrills to big kids, teens and adults.

   On Splash Mountain, Gotta Be Movin' On.  Say goodbye to Br'er Rabbit; he's leaving his home in search of a little more adventure, a bit of fortune and his laughing place—where he can live the life that suits him best.

   Watch as he outwits Br'er Bear and Br'er Fox, escapes their clutches and slips out of sticky situations. Plummet into dark caves and tumble over gentle waterfalls… until Br'er Rabbit's taunting catches up to him—and he's finally caught!

   From the confines of Br'er Fox's cave at the top of Chickapin Hill on Splash Mountain, Br'er Rabbit tricks Br'er Bear and Br'er Fox one more time. Don't throw me down, down, down into the briar-brimmed pond, he pleads. Anyplace but there!

Of course, this is exactly what they do. Follow him as he plummets over the mountain peak on a 5-story (52.5 feet) fall that ends in a massive splashdown into the refreshing pond: Br'er Rabbit's home, his laughing place.

After this ultimate plunge, drift past more southern critters aboard a lively Mississippi riverboat. Sing along with them, for it's a zip-a-dee-doo-dah day! Everyone has a Laughing Place—maybe Splash Mountain is yours.
 
TD Tip...
Will You Get Wet?  The twists, turns and 3 dips that lead to the grand drop down 5 stories of rushing water will either get you damp or drenched. If soaked is your goal, request a seat in the front or sit on the right side of the hollowed-out log.


Splash Mountain Facts:
Date Opened:  October 2, 1992.


Ride Length = 11 minutes

During the design phase, Splash Mountain was named Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah River Run.

Some of the animatronics used in Splash Mountain were taken from the old "America Sings" attraction at Disneyland.

The Splash Mountain attraction is based upon the stories of "Brer Rabbit, Tar Baby, and Uncle Remus."

Disney imagineers like to incorporate part of themselves in the attractions they create. A imagineer who helped create SPLASH MOUNTAIN is no exception. Just before the Big Drop a little squirrel pops out from the ceiling and in a high pitched voice says "F-S-U" , which stands for Florida State University. The school where the imagineer graduated.

According to the Keys to the Kingdom tour there are a total of 67 hidden Mickeys on the Splash Mountain ride.
