    Question about Splash Mountain seat configuration

    I know that they changed the seats on splash mountain some time ago and I wanted to know if it is all individual seating or if you can still have someone sitting inbetween your legs. This would be my 6 year olds first time and I don't know how she will respond to the drop. I think we both would feel more comfortable if I could hold on to her but I am not sure if you can even do that anymore. Any info would be appreciated.

    It's individual seat...except for the very back seat where you can sit side by side. ..

    Lap seating will likely be eliminated from all Disney themepark rides by the end of the decade.

    Yeah. I went by myself and I asked them where was the dryest spot (even though I knew it was the back) and they put me right there! :happy:

    Not always . . . I sat in the far back one time and got hit with a bucket-size splash. The worst part is for a man who carries his wallet in his back pocket. Disney usually gets all the money in my wallet, that day they got my wet money.

    Can't two people sit in the back if the 2nd is below 5ft?

    Re: Question about Splash Mountain seat configuration

    Second to last seat is actually the dryest, that's where I sit when I film the ride.

    Re: Question about Splash Mountain seat configuration

    I think it all depends on who you go with - I go with my husband and kids, and I always get the wettest - no matter where I sit. My husband is twice my size, so I think it depends on where the most weight is. It would be an interesting theory paper.

    Will trade husband for Disneyland and DCA Pins!

    The seats are really close together now, in fact my 6'5" DH can only sit in the very back now because of the lack of leg room of the other seats. It would be very easy for you to sit behind you daughter and reach around and hug her during the ride.

    I sit there every time because my boyfriend is 6'4, and I only get wet during the roller-coaster blacklighted Laughing Place...I get a huge wave on my leg every time. Grah! And am I crazy, because I'm almost certain that there's a part right after the sliding subsides that there's a water squirter somewhere?

    One thing I don't like is the lack of space in the logs. I was in the last seat from the very back and the person in the back seat had there knees roght up agaisnt my thighs...it was not enjoyable at all. it's one thing when you know the person.....

    There are a couple of places where you will get water dribbled on you from above if you are sitting in one of the last two seats.

    This seems like a good place to advise for seating arangments for Splash Mountian.

    Simply put, big people in front, and lots of them. If you can make friends with about four big fat fellas (over 250 lbs) then you got yourself a good log full.

    My dad, brother, brother-in-law and I (all over 250 except me) along with my skinny wife and sister got on a log. My mother refused to ride with us, so the poor unsuspecting cheerleader sat behind all of us. That is the best ride configuration. Poor cheerleader never knew what hit her.

    And of course the issue then becomes how does one sucessfully retro-fit wider seating into these rides? The Matterhorn? I suppose that could go the way of WDW's Space Mountain cars...but if they wanted even those cars gone one has to wonder if it'd just cause more headaches much like the new Splash logs.
