I don't know if you remember, but last month I had a thread asking about Splash Mountain. I am a super wimp and on top of that I hate getting wet. I want to say thanks for everyone encouraging me to brave the water and go on it! First off I have to say I am so glad I went on the ride. I get to cross it off my to do list and say I was brave! When we got on the ride my husband sat in the far back, my 8 year old nephew in front of him and I was in front of the little guy. In front of me was a college guy and his gf sitting in the front seat. I was glad to see I was not the only nervous one, she was very anxious and he kept telling her, don't worry it's ok, it's not scary! Most of the ride is pretty mellow, nice little float along, stuff to see, and then we came to the incline for the big plunge. I was starting to panick and was thinking, is there any way to jump off this thing? Two logs in front of us, some did! They jumped up and bailed off the side! Seeing that I really wanted to join him! Just as we started up the incline and our log was fully tilted back the ride stopped! We were still for almost two minutes which gave me, and the girl in front enough time to really start rethinking this ride. The ride started up again and about half a log length front the top, we stopped again! This time we were stopped for over 3 minutes!! I really started freaking out! Just then the log went forward and well, down we went! I closed my eyes and screamed as loud as I could as I tried to scoot down in the log! I could hear my nephew behind me yelling, WOOHOO, YEAH MAN!! When we got to the bottom and we were once again softly floating along I opened my eyes. The poor girl in front was soaked and crying and her bf kept telling her, Sorry, sorry. I was happy to be alive, and my nephew was hollaring that was awesome and my husband was laughing, calling me a wimpy wimp! When we got off the ride we checked out our photo, it was so funny, the girl was freaking out, I was hiding behind the guy, you couldn't even see my short little nephew and my husband had this big goofy grin on his face!
I am so glad I did Splash Mountain, but I can also say, I never want to do it again!!
