    New safety announcement on Splash Mountain?

    On my last three rides on Splash Mountain right before the first drop a womans voice tells you to remain seated, has anyone else notice this?
    It's a stiff!!!

    It's not an announcement from the ride. It's a ride operator who can see someone possibly standing up or is trying to keep people from standing up. Recorded announcements are done in theme and I have heard it only when some hooligans prrepare to stand.

    I just don't understand people who actually stand up on these rides. It's like they are looking for a death wish.

    It's the fact that they tell you to remain seated! For some people it is basically saying to do the exact opposite. Not me though, I like loud ominous voices telling me what to do

    Now, I'll turn that little mouse's dream into a nightmare Fantasmic!

    No one was standing up and on all three rides its been the same voice and always before the first drop.

    Weird... maybe it's a preemptive warning from the CM?

    No Kidding! It's people that stand up on the rides and get all smashed up that ruin it for the rest of us non-insane people.

    I always wondered where the CM sits... never see them as I'm usually screaming my fool head off the entire last lift.

    The CM sits in a dark area BEFORE the lift. Look behind you to the right by the exit sign and VOILA! Instant sitting CM!

    Ah, that's the last hill, not the first drop. That is monitored by camera I believe and it porbably was preemptive.

    This is true. While the sad rabbits are singing and the vultures are looking down.

    The automated one on the Knott's Log Ride is the best.

    It just simply says, no yells "SIT DOWN".
