Splash Mountain opened back in 1992, and as of Sunday, it has officially closed. It was set in a southern bayou, with a boat ride through different scenes featuring characters named Br'er Bear, Br'er Fox and Br'er Rabbit. The ride ended with a 50-foot drop into the "Briar Patch." Thousands lined up to "rope-drop" the ride on Sunday and the wait was as long as 300 minutes at points of the day.
Up next for Splash Mountain... a full make-over and redesign based on the 2009 animated film "The Princess and the Frog." It will be called Tiana's Bayou Adventure and should open in 2024. Click Here for the details we know so far about the new ride.
