Return to Adventureland – Return to Disneyland

Splash Mountain is a popular log flume ride at Disneyland located in Critter Country. The attraction is based on the 1946 Disney film “Song of the South” and features characters and songs from the movie.

The ride begins with guests boarding a log-shaped boat and embarking on a journey through a series of whimsical scenes, including a bayou, a beaver dam, and a cave filled with glowing crystals. Along the way, guests encounter a cast of animatronic animals, including frogs, turtles, and rabbits, who perform songs and jokes.

As the ride progresses, it becomes increasingly steep and intense, culminating in a thrilling drop down a 50-foot waterfall, which results in a massive splash that drenches guests. The ride then continues through more scenes and concludes with a cheerful finale that celebrates the triumph of good over evil.

The attraction is well-known for its catchy soundtrack, which includes songs such as “Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah” and “Everybody’s Got a Laughing Place.” It is also notable for its theming, which includes detailed sets and animatronics that immerse guests in the world of the movie.

Overall, Splash Mountain is a beloved Disneyland attraction that combines music, humor, and thrills in a unique and unforgettable experience. It is a must-visit for fans of Disney’s classic films and anyone seeking a fun and exciting adventure in the heart of the park. Soon it will be re-imaged to become Tiana’s Bayou Adventure that will tell a new story based on Princess Tiana and other characters from The Princess and the Frog.
