Splash Mountain

Based on the story behind the 1946 Disney film, Song of the South, Splash Mountain is a log-flume ride that follows the story of Br'er Rabbit, who is leaving his home in search of his fortune, for adventure and to find his laughing place. Ignoring the warning from the wise Br’er Frog, he outwits Br’er Bear and Br’er Fox, who end up having to fend off an alligator, while he finds his home the laughing place, and the critters can then all sing "zip-a-dee-doo-dah!"

 

Passengers board eight logs, seated two by two, which are now equipped with lap bars for safety reasons following a January 2011 renovation. The log ascends two dual-chain lifts before floating gently through scenery that evokes the feeling of a river in the southern US, particularly Georgia, where Song of the South was based. The homes of the three main characters and aged farm equipment are incorporated into the landscape, along with an instrumental version of "How Do You Do?" emanating from hidden speakers, among other ditties along the way.
