Splash Mountain

Opened: October 2, 1992

Ride length: 11 minutesSplash MountainOverview/History:
One of the Magic Kingdom's major attractions is Splash Mountain. Based on the 1946 Walt Disney film, "Song of the South", this ride features the antics of Brer Fox and Brer Bear's attempts to catch the wily Brer Rabbit as he looks for his laughing place. Over 100 Audio-animatronic figures entertain you as

your log boat winds its way through caves, swamps and bayous, and down three minor drops before

climaxing with a 52 foot plunge through the briar patch after Brer Rabbit outfoxes Brer Fox. A camera captures the look of fearful delight on your faces as you enter the final plunge. These pictures are displayed at the end of the ride and are available for purchase.

On busy days long winding queues are opened, beginning outside in partial shade and leading into the cool cavern where your journey begins. While the ride is fun for guests of all ages, a height restriction of 40" is in effect. Parents may use the "switching off" option. There is a very good chance that you'll get wet so be prepared. While it may be refreshing on hot days, wet clothes can get a little chilly on cooler evenings.


Fast Pass: Yes

Handicapped Accessibility: Guests in wheelchairs must be able to transfer to the log boats in order to ride this attraction.

Fun fact: Some of the animatronics used in Splash Mountain were taken from the old "America Sings" attraction at Disneyland.

Splash Mountain Reviews from DIS members:
  • disney brit - "This is simply the best log flume ride I have ever ridden. The theming is superb. The drop at the end is not as bad as it looks."

  • LeftInNorway - "I was scared stiff the first time I went on this ride. It was something I had to conquer and I felt so exhilirated when I came out the exit! It was an absolute thrill and I was so happy to be able to share it with my husband! I've been on about 5 times since and will go again and again!"
