    Re: Splash Mountain lap bars?

    From what I was told from a friend who works at Splash, they were trying to install bars on all the boats, but were having issues with some of the boats (so some do have bars, but some don't).

    Re: Splash Mountain lap bars?

    I know this is an old thread, but I wanted to confirm that the lap bars are now on all logs and being used as of January 31, 2011 as reported by the Orlando Sentinel in the article HERE.

    Here's a picture of the new safety bars on a Splash Mountain log . . .

    Anyone else see the story of the vet who was thrown off the roller coaster in VA because of the lap belt? He didn't have any legs. Oops.
    Really, Walt? Disneyland is MY land? Why would I want a silly little land when I can have the WORLD.
