The Splash Mountain Challenge
On my most recent trip to Disney, about a month ago, my best friend and I created a game that is somewhat embarrassing, a little strenuous, and a lot of fun. We call it the Splash Mountain Challenge, and it consists of getting everyone in your party, or entire boat, to all put their arms up, and keep them up for the entire ride. We had one person be the official judge, they played, but they also tried their best to watch everybody else for any rule infractions.
We laid out the rules like this:
-Everyone playing must raise their arms up when the judge says, which is usually at the station after everyone sits down, the judge will say, 1, 2, 3, up. (or something like that.)
-Your arms have to stay up in the air as long as possible, your arms may be bent, but your elbows cannot drop below your shoulder height, or below 90 degrees.
- You can "rest" your arms, but only by holding them together over your head, and locking out your elbows.
-Anyone who drops their arms lower than the shoulders or gives up is out of the contest.
-You have to keep them up for the duration of the ride, while exiting the boats, through the entire gift shop, and past the picture purchase area.
-Once you pass the picture area, you may decide when and where to drop your arms, and everybody who remains has to do it at the same time, (1, 2, 3, down)
It is fun to try, it looks a little rediculous to everybody else, and it is much harder than it seems!
Have fun with this idea, and I have a few more Disney Challenges that we made up too, if anyone is interested!
-Space Mountain Challenge- arms held straight out in front of you for the entire ride.
-Big Thunder Mountain Railroad Challenge- hands placed behind your head, fingers interlocked throughout the ride.
-The "Walk to the Front of the Park" Challenge- walk backwards when you exit for the night from the last ride you rode, to the main gate, and through the turnstile.
-The Monorail Challenge- try to stand up for the duration of the monorail ride to the TTC without holding on to anything.
