Splash Mountain

Splash Mountain in Frontierland at the Magic Kingdom is a log flume ride based on the characters, stories and songs from the classic 1946 film Song of the South.

Riders are seated 2 per row of a total of 4 rows making it an 8 passenger log ride. You start off on a peaceful journey outside floating on the waters and into the mountain where you will find the audioanimatronic figures like Br'er Rabbit, Br'er Fox, and Br'er Bear.

WARNING! There are some drops in this attraction and some are a little significant especially the famous 5 story drop near the end of the ride. So for those who have a fear of falling, I would not recommend this ride. However, for those who love the drops, this is an excellent ride that you don't want to miss out on. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, you will get wet (but it feels great in the summertime).

Fastpass is available for this attraction. Normal wait time without the fastpass could be approximately 45-60 minutes. Although, I jumped on this thing a couple of times pretty fast while the 11:00 parade was going on. My recommendation is to get a fastpass, hop over to the Pirates of the Caribbean, sit down and watch the tropical birds sing in the Enchanted Tiki Room and by that time go back over to Splash Mountain to use your fastpass if it's time to use it.

Take a look at this video below and I hope that you enjoy it. It's nothing like being there and feeling the thrill of when the next drop will be or when the water splashes into the log you are in. Whatever it may be, all in all, I give this attraction a thumbs up 5 out of 5 star rating.
