    Re: What's going on with Splash (soak) Mountain?

    While I think the retrofitted logs are partially to blame, there might be something else added into the equation. I rode Splash last Sunday at about 9:30am in the last seat. Everyone in the log experienced that wall of water rebound (for the lack of a better descriptive) after the last, big drop. Later, while riding the Mark Twain, I noticed that the major soakage occuring earlier in the day wasn't there. People were still getting wet, but not nearly as much as three or four hours earlier. Does anyone have an explanation for this?

    Yes! there is totally huge amounts of water just dropping down from there now. I got drenched twice there, and so did my husband. I think they changed something outside, and now water comes through from the top!

    Re: What's going on with Splash (soak) Mountain?

    I think it might be a good change though. it's a log flume, all the log flumes I've been on get me soaked, splash never did. I like being soaked on a hot day!!! Most people that only go to disneyland once won't have any expectations, they don't know.. So they'll be prepared to get wet! We should do the same!!! GET TO YOUR BATTLE STATIONS!!! WETNESS IS COMIN!!!

    Re: What's going on with Splash (soak) Mountain?

    I got really wet, I think it was the 24th of Sep. I got so wet I never dried. Well maybe because, it was at 8:30 at night and it was getting fairly cold. But I don't remember getting that wet, even when I sat in the front row before. I don't remember if I was in the front (not first seat though) but could all this splashing and excess wetness be from the fact that the logs are bigger thus displacing more water?

    Re: What's going on with Splash (soak) Mountain?

    For all you youngsters out there I rode Splash Mountain the first summer it was open, and it was fun to get soaked and drenched.
    There was about a ten year period where I did not go to Disneyland, so when I went and went on that ride,
    I was like hhhhhhhhheeeeeeeeeeyyyyyy what happened to the Splash and drenchness.

    When I was in May and August this last summer I was so happy to get drenched again. When I go in October I will be splashing again!

    SM has ALWAYS been very random. It seems the water level that day and the weight has a great deal to do with the last splash. Disneykat and I watched the logs for about 20 mins one meet and noted that the family's with small children in front dont get wet. But if its full of full grown adults, watch out! And set, se did notice the random title wave that would get riders once they thought "Boy, I hardly got wet!" WAM!

    Re: What's going on with Splash (soak) Mountain?

    i find it funny that everyone thinks that there is more water in the flume the problem is there is less and the less water the quicker the water itself moves it is easier to splash a little bit of water than alot so that is why everyone has been getting soaked they lowered the water level I asked 3 different CM's and if you guys don't believe me then look the next time you take the plunge you can see where the old water line is on the ride elements its down by about 2 to 3 inches

    I've heard the new vehicles were designed to splash you more. I got front row a few months ago and got TOTALLY drentched. There litterally wasn't a dry spot on me. I was really surprised, because that had never happend to me before.

    Re: What's going on with Splash (soak) Mountain?

    Well, I'm all for getting wet and/or soaked on Splash Mountain. It's the name of the ride for goodness sakes. A couple months ago, I would've complained that I hardly got wet on the Splash Mountain. Now that I'm hearing that people are getting soaked, I'll go on it more often. Instead of having a "You May Get Wet" sign, they should do what Knott's Berry Farm does with their Big Foot Rapids:

    "You WILL Get Wet, You MAY Get Drenched"

    Re: What's going on with Splash (soak) Mountain?

    We made the mistake of making Splash our last ride for the night. I sat in the very front row and was COMPLETELY soaked.



    My knees were safe because I kept them pressed up against the front of the log. May lap and armpits were the only dry part on my because thas where my arms where. Note the none-too-happy look on my face And no, I am not an amputee... my gf just isn't very good at taking pics
