anyhow... rumor says that the last time they drain, they found a bowling ball in there...
The Disneyland Divers were quite often retrieving dentures in the old days. Don't know if they still do. Dental adhesives have likely been improved over the decades. And fewer people probably require dentures these days.
I know they pulled a Mr. Coffee out of Rivers of America once. We all ran over to see it like it was some buried treasure that was discovered or something.
I know the Columbia and Mark Twain are on rails. I just don't see how they can go along the rails and not fall off.
Because they are real floating vessels. Remember the story of the Twain listing to one side as the fully loaded boat's Guests all stood on one side during its televised Christening? The rails are there to just guide the two main ships direction. Although the Twain reportedly did "jump the rail" once in its history.
If memory serves me...the Mark Twain requires less that 2 feet of draft in order to remain afloat.
I took a ton of pictures of the drained Rivers of America when I was at Disneyland on a choir tour, but sadly, they were all lost in a computer crash. It looked pretty freaky, though. I just couldn't believe they didn't have the refurb wall up, since it was like the last day of the dry refurb. (The wall was up by the end of the day.)

"It's okay, Beaker, we're scientists. We get paid to fail."
I remember a couple years ago they had the walls up and tom and huck white washing the fence it was preety hilarious how the park visitors would just come over and paint the fence FOR FUN cuz the cm playing the part of huck asked them too.
