This flume ride takes you through the Song of the South story filled with audio animatronics and then down a 52 ft. drop at 40 MPH.
It is a good ride to cool down, feels worthy of the wait because of the long duration, tells the story better than WDL, the last drop really feels like you are going into the briar patch, and of course.. the theming is Disney perfect. (9/10) - Lexi R
This lenghty flume ride has everything. An atmospheric queue through some grottos, beautiful scenery while sailing through the outdoor passages, great theming during the indoor portions, a good storyline which is clearly understandable by viewing the scenes, a good amount of drops (one of them with a little surprise) and a catchy soundtrack. This ride will make you smile the whole 11 minutes it takes and screams for repetitions. On top of it, you don't get toooo wet, so you don't need to change into your bathing suits, a rain jacket or poncho does its thing. Occasional soakings occur, though ;-) - Chris W.
A fun flume ride! Once they fix the AAs in the next refurb, it'll be back at 9/10. For now, it's 8/10 - Dominick D
This, alongside Tower of Terror is Disney at its very best. The perfect blend of wonderful theming and thrilling ride. - Mark Doherty
I love this ride its my 2nd fav in the park and is a great ride for a hot day or any day its a must do and classic although my fav drop isn't the finale but the dark drop and hill one because its more interesting. Needs a bit of TLC though. 9/10 - Edward Morgan
Splash Mountain is my favorite Magic Kingdom attraction. I have a smile on my face during the entire ride. And I love the ending after you think the ride is over. Perfection. - Rob Pastor
Great ride, but needs a big, long refurb in the near future. - Sean Huckel
The drop isn't the highest or most thrilling, but the length, pacing, and theming are all best in class. My favorite flume ride. - Josh Pearson
You can do this ride over and over again. It is fairly thrilling with the drops. Everytime you ride it you find something new with the whole 'brer patch'. - B Higgins
8/10 - It might not make the biggest splash but I love it. I always wondered If the Mountain was like the TARDIS, because It always feels like the inside of the mountain is massive. - James Wimbury
Get soaked head to toe in this awesome flume It is a true Disney dimond may i say a prime Dimond incrusted ring soaked in water and gold. - Manny Rodriguez
