    Re: Ever done Grizzly River Run at night?

    I still haven't gone on GRR, even during the day! I do love Splash at night, and my record is twice in a row, hahaha. It is pretty awesome when they CM's just say, "do you want to go again?"

    Re: Ever done Grizzly River Run at night?

    I must say, I never was fond of doing GRR at night for the obvious "freeze to death" reason. I went on recently, and it was a really unique experience compared to the usual daytime ride. The caves are pitch black, thus adding the element of surprise to the ride. Along with that, the sight of seeing DCA at that height at night is simply breathtaking.

    I've never done GRR at night but I totally want to now! Splash is awesome to ride during Fatasmic and Casey Jr is the best at night during the fireworks! Especially if you are able to get the caboose! It gives you a view not a lot of people get!

    There's an added element of fun/suspense in not being able to see quite where you're going or how rough the waves are gonna be, but still giving the illusion of moving through a forest river at night. Plus, that second tunnel is DARK at night, a good 5 seconds of pitch black. The geyser field at the end looks great too when backlit at night - you just come out of the final drop and go into this mist cloud.

    On another note, my pass is expiring (I can't afford to renew it right now for budgetary reasons) so I spent a few hours tonight and last night at both parks getting those last few rides in. I got two runs on GRR in, which I was glad for because my wife refuses to go on that ride because she hates getting wet.

    At least when I can go back again the novelty will have return and I ended this AP run on a high note.

    That all sounds like so much fun!!! I wish Disneyland was open longer at night.

Splash mountain is awesome as well. one special night time I did was this last New Years I was on RsR right at midnight and saw all the fireworks go off while we were about to hit the cave. The on the racing portion we saw the fireworks going off. Couldn't have planned it if I tried! Also the line was only 15 mins long at that point of New Years Eve which was awesome!!!!!!

    I want to try this now, too! Once we got on Small World during the fireworks. We didn't even realize they were starting, but when we came out of the tunnel at the end of the ride we could see them going off. That was a pretty fun surprise!

    I've actually never done it during the day. Am I missing much or should I just stick to walk-on nighttime rides?

    Re: Ever done Grizzly River Run at night?

    I love GRR at night! It's almost a tradition with me and my group of friends. Gives you a nice view of DCA, not to mention how eerie, spooky, and suspenseful it is at night. When Carsland was still testing we were able to see it with all the neon lights on...really cool experience.

    During the day, you get all the "uh-oh, is it gonna be me? No, it's you! WAIT STOP SPINNING!" But I would think that this might be the dialogue for many night runs as well. There's also the factor of being able to dry off a lot faster during the day.

    When we go the park usually closes at 9 I think? On days when they offer things like the Halloween party I think it was around 7 or 8 that it closed. Granted, if we wanted more night time hours we could go on the weekend or during summer. Even still, I love night time at Disneyland so much 3-5 hours of actual lit up darkness just doesn't seem like enough.

    The all night events sound awesome, but I hear they turn into such a crowded mess it wouldn't be worth it, especially since we don't live in California.

    GRR is the largest ride of it's kind in the world. I'd say you owe it to yourself to go on at least once.

    I've never been on a total Splash go-around, but last time I went to Knott's Berry Farm the park was almost deserted and my wife and I went around on the Log Ride three times!

    During the say you can definitely see more of the great scenery and get more of an idea of how you're moving, but it's not drastically different.

    I would love to ride it at night, but I just get SOOO cold and can't deal with being wet! Maybe once day I will do it and bring a change of clothes!
