Inspired by the 1946 Disney film “Song of the South,” the attraction tells the story of Brer Rabbit, Brer Fox and Brer Bear.
Several milestones were reached in the history of Disney attractions when Splash Mountain made its debut. For instance, this attraction features more than 70 Audio-Animatronics, which is one of the largest animated casts ever created for a Disney attraction. Splash Mountain also sports one of the biggest animated props ever built with its 35-foot-wide showboat. Also, the 52 ½-foot drop down Chickapin Hill at the end speeds guests at up to 40 miles per hour, one of the fastest speeds achieved at a Disney attraction.
So which do you enjoy more: Getting soaked on the attraction, or watching others get soaked from the viewing bridge?
