    Cool...my daughter will love the good news! Been asking me every time we go (including last night) about Splash!
    Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
    it's what they are like in their HEART!

    They have totally new logs...

    There are now 6 seats, and the back seat can be used for larger sized person, those who need special assistance, or by a parent and a child..

    So you have a larger hourly capacity, which is a good thing with Splash....

    Some of the logs are the new configuration. I'm not sure if all of them are. Everything is nicely painted, especially the briar patch and the flourescent stuff. The sound has been much improved and most of the audioanimatronics look much better, though some could still use work (why doesn't the beehive spin on Brer Bear's nose?). The professor owl at the end is working again.

    From my experience, I think you also get much wetter.

    Today is a bit cool, but by 10am the line was 80mins long ... wonder how long it will be when it starts raining.

    The owl working again is definitely good news. It was always so depressing to see him sitting there all silent and sad.

    As for getting wetter... I'd like to know everyone's opinion on this. Personally, I love the ride, but I don't like getting wet on days where the temperature is less than 80 degrees, so I don't ride Splash as often as I'd like to ( I HATE being cold... personal issue, I know).

    I'm wondering, what is everyone else's "soak tolerance" temperature. Do people really like to ride this one when it's cold? :confused:

    I can't stand to be wet when it is cold! I won't ride Splash or GRR unless it is really warm out!

    About to head up to the DLR, and my wonderful Girlfriend

    I will be riding Splash more than once, and you will get photos, and of course, so will other folks....

    Just be patient.. and don't forget, it is peak Easter Break, so it will be harder to get those photos...

    Heck, I have over 500 photos from last night preview of Deep, Deep Trouble at SeaWorld on my site, and that was less than 24 hour turnaround....

    Not to mention, it makes things a lot more easier during Grad Night. If you know what I mean.
    I lurk.

    it says above that the owl is working again...does that mean that the little picture screen works as well????
    Went to a party the other night
    All the ladies were treating me right
    Moving my feet to the disco beat
    How in the world could I keep my seat
    All of a sudden I began to change
    I was on the dance floor acting strange
    Flapping my arms I began to cluck
    Look at me..I'm the disco duck

    Glad they spruced up the sound and paint. can someone call WDW and tell them to paint inside their Splash Mt?

    I'm just glad that owl's working again

    now we have something the other Splash Mountains don't have

    except Tokyo's Splash has an Owl in the que >_>

    we should get an owl in the que and a frog on the first lift just like WDW/Tokyo
