    Extensive Splash Mt. Rehab 2.0

    Earlier this year Splash Mountain went down for a very long and extensive rehab, just shy of 3 months. Earlier this week it was announced that Splash would go down for her annual rehab January 6th through January 31st in 2014.

    No sooner did this hit the rehab schedule and a few days later the schedule was altered. Now Splash will be down for another extensive rehab spanning from January 6 2014 and at this time scheduled to reopen on
    March 22, 2014.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Maybe they are going to get it ready to use as a commercial for an upcoming Pixar flick like they have with Soarin'. Maybe it's called "Boats."

    Better watch my sarcasm, someone might think that's a great idea....

    That indoor queue is claustrophobic as it is. The outside queue could certainly use some more shade. Info is slow coming out but they are still having issues with the dancing water in The Laughing Place.

    In fairness it is in much better shape than last year when the mountain itself was disintegrating along with failing everything inside.

    Yet, there are some missing animatronics. The jets that go in front of the boat path are missing and the lift doesn't have music once you pass the vultures. They have opted to use light now instead of the former rocks movement, back and forth and the lanterns don't shake anymore. They fixed the rainbows but the dude in the bathtub is missing in the mist.

    Re: Extensive Splash Mt. Rehab 2.0

    You know these rehabbs always bring me back tot he conviction that some solid money needs ot be put ointo fixing and plussing up what si already there. Look at the great job witht he Haunted Mansion, excellent refurb with e stairs and the new queue is good . Small change sint eh queue at Big Thumber Mountian werew plus. I know there are maintianance issues with attarctiosn as they get older but the slow "minusing" is depressing.
