    I got ride evac'd on Splash Mountain last night (Pics! Illusion spoiler warning)

    After Fantasmic! last night there was no wait on Splash Mountain, so Manabyte and another friend and I figured it'd be a good time to go on. During the third ride, we and three or four other logs got stuck on the first drop by Bear Bear's house. Normally during the day we'd probably be stuck there until they fixed it, but since it was 11:30pm, I guess they figured it wasn't worth keeping us up there so we got ride evac'd. As soon as the lights went on we screamed "RIDE EVAC!!!" and the other people didn't understand why we were so excited. So, of course, we had to explain it to them.

    Anyway, I took pictures. Some of these are backstage on the ride so if you don't want the illusion spoiled for you, read no further. Also, a bunch of these pictures are fuzzy because Manabyte said they'd be angry with me if they caught me taking pictures so I shot a lot of these off-the-cuff. So I apologize in advance for some of the fuzzyier shots.










    The first pictures are from the log before the Cast Member arrived to assist us off the ride. This is after the lights came on and we cheered our eventual evac.


    Without flash.


    With flash. Just for comparison's sake.

    Eventually our rescuer arrived in the form of a friendly Cast Member. This is one of those fuzzy shots I warned you about.

    The two girls in this shot didn't seem too pleased that I was taking pictures of them, so I'm hiding their identity. Not that you could tell who they are in these fuzzy shots, but I want to be respectful of their feelings anyway.



    Here's a close-up of Brer Bear's mailbox with some people in the shot. Not terribly exciting but it shows we were up on the path there.



    Quick shot inside Brer Bear's door. Apparently they use it to store lightbulbs.




    Eventually we were escorted inside the mountain where you could see the understructure of the mountain and the beams and girders and stuff. Not sure what the technical term for it is. But here's a picture anyway.



    Next we went down a bunch of steps...



    ...and finally passed by the bog...



    ...before exiting the attraction backstage. I didn't want to risk taking pictures back there, so I didn't. But then they gave us a Choice Fastpass for our group, so we rushed over to Space Mountain before the park closed.

    We had quite a full day yesterday. I'm really tired now.

    Hope you enjoyed the story and pictures.

    WEll, I resized them a bit. I had them resized but they were still too big for my server to handle all you people.

    Hopefully that works.

    Meanwhile, I may have to upgrade my photobucket account to store bigger pictures or something.

    Sounds like Splash wen't down about the same time Indy almost did. We got stuck 6 times before we got back to the loading area. Totally thought we were gonna get to walk out, but no. We probably passed each other. When you were booking it to Space, we were booking it to HMH.

    I don't like how they resize them. So I do it myself.

    But I didn't have time to upload them to photobucket yet so I just put 'em on my server for now.

    Yeah we got stuck on the ride I was SO excited that I was going to get some pic;s of the backstage area but a Lady warned me that if I took any pic's she would take my camrea away.
    Its if your making us go in the back stage area then let us take pic's.
    by the way the backstage area is so cool and Splash looks WAY different from the backstage.

    I would've loved to have been evac'd from the top of the big hill. That'd be sweet.
