    How wet have you gotten on Splash Mountain

    Last week a group of friends and I went on Splash Mountain. In all the years I've ridden that ride, I have NEVER gotten so wet in my life. Even when the ride was in soft openings, I didn't get that wet. I have come off Grizzly River Rapids dryer.

    Has this ever happened to you?

    Re: How wet have you gotten on Splash Mountain

    I've gotten way wetter on Grizzly. But I went last week when I went to see the new changes in the Haunted Mansion. Dang CM stuck me in the front row. I didn't get too wet, but my sweatshirt and jeans did. I specifically didn't want to get myself because I got incredibly sick a few years ago when I went on Splash in February (maybe?) and again I was in the front row but the hood to my jacket went down and my head got soaked. I learned from that experience!

    50/50 on getting wet and staying relatively dry.

    Surprisingly, the part of the ride that I usually get wet on is not the big drop, but rather that little rollercoaster-style swoop in the middle of the ride. A big "chunk" of water always seems to softly ricochet in my direction. I must be a water magnet or something

    Kelly, did you remember when we all went on? that little one of yours got drenched! and I got real wet on splash. it was raining that day and man the water was running high, we all got soaked! I wore a poncho, and the water came in and went under my poncho and soaked my bum.

    I always steal the back seat from my group when I go on Splash. It's really great now, since the back seat is a two-seater, so with only one person you can sit in the middle and avoid most of the splash. Also, the way the backseat is designed, you're protected from a lof of the water.

    I sat one seat in front of the backseat the last time I went on Splash and got pretty wet. It sucked. I LOVE Splash, but I hate getting wet.

    Re: How wet have you gotten on Splash Mountain

    My friends and I got drenched. It looked like we dunked ourselves in the troft. A CM who was working at the photo place said "In the 15 years I've worked here, I've never seen anyone get that wet on this attraction"
    I guess it would have been ok if it had been warm that day. I was freezing for hours

    The new logs are front heavy. Also the large drop has the ability to get you the most wet. One time the water went over the front of the boat drenching me. Usually what gets me the most wet are the little transfer drops and the roller coaster drop.

    I tend to get one pant leg drenched, and that's when the log goes through that roller-coaster section.

    Re: How wet have you gotten on Splash Mountain

    Everytime I go on splash it seems like I get a large wave of water on the second drop. It always gets me totally wet. Grizzly tends to be more random.

    Re: How wet have you gotten on Splash Mountain

    One time we went down the little drop and I was joking with my nephew about how that was as wet as we would get. Then we ran into the guard rail and a huge wave went over the side of the log and got my left side drenched I was wringing myself out. Lets just say I was in need of some talc. The funny part is the joke I told my nephew was real I did not get too wet on the big drop.
    That is sure what makes going lots of times fun!




    This one time on Friends . . .

    Wink Re: How wet have you gotten on Splash Mountain

    Years ago, my friends and I had an entire log to ourselves and it was a very warm evening and after the big drop at the end we started splashing each other like mad, as if we suddenly caught fire. The CM watching us from the control room was yelling at us over the PA but we didn't hear him over the crazy laughing and screaming. Needless to say there was not one dry part on our bodies. There must have been a few inches of water in the log.

    When we pulled up to the dock the people getting in looked at us with dropped jaws. They thought that the ride itself was responsible for our utterly wet appearance. I'm sure some of them who never rode before may have had second thoughts.

    Funny, one of my friends was afraid to get wet, but we told her you barely get a trickle (we rode it a couple times that morning and didn't get much really)....needless to say, when she rode, we all got drenched.
