    Splash Mountain: It's baaaack!

    Well friends I went to the park yesterday for a couple of hours and I went on Splash mountain like I always do and guess what was back!?........ The screen that is by the owl at the end plus there was a new light shining on him so maybe soon they will start to show the pics there again!I did not have my camera with me so i will take a pic when i go on friday and i will post it here. I just think its cool that something that has not worked for years might be coming back! What do you guys think?

    They have done sooooooooooooo many refurbishments.....and neglected that so many times. Bad show. I think they should just leave the owl talking to guests and remove the screen if they aren't going to fix it.

    Well, I guess a CLEAN broken screen is better than a DIRTY broken screen, right ?

    Well, I hope they are going to put it back in, because that was nice on busy days to be able to look at your picture a little while you are waiting for logs to unload. And if they took the time to pull it out and clean it, sounds like it's coming back.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    No but the fact they spent money to fix it and put it back up is a sign that they will probably bring the pics back on the screen. I do not think they would have wasted the money otherwise.

    Now I just wish it'd slow down and they'd put back the giant water cannon every 3 logs ;P

    what's really amusing about this is my boyfriend and i were just talking about that owl and the screen. we went on the ride on sunday and i said "i remember when you used to see your photo right there." and then we had a good chuckle.

    how bizarre. i think it would be really neat if they brought it back. it was always fun laughing, and seeing your pic alone - as opposed to on 6 different screens trying to find your picture.

    Re: Splash Mountain: It's baaaack!

    I go on SPlash as much as I can and over the last few months they have indeed been working on different scenes. I always notice when an AA has been taken out and usually within two to four weeks it is back. They replaced the laughing rabbit(right before you go down the hill with Brer Bear's butt in your face) just a couple of months ago. Also new lighting has been added and replaced and enhanced in certain areas of the ride over the entire summer. So maybe I ride Splash too much, but i do notice things!
