  • [Rumor] Dead bodies on GRR? (Joke)

    I was reading online that the backstory of Grizzly Peak is pretty horibble and that los of people have died working the mines and such. then I read that disney placed dead bodies on the bottom of the river for us MCers and I was thinking to myself... dead bodies at disneyland? Never! Then
    I went thru the ride in my head and remembered that on numerous occasions I thought that the raft had run over something, which I would joke was a dead body... now I'm wondering is there anymerit to this story? Are there really dead bodies there? Can anyone confirm this?

    What the heck..? I'm not sure I'm understanding this. I'm just guessing, but I think it's safe to say there's no dead bodies down there

        Sorry for the lack of clarity I meant Disney placed fake dead bodies not real ones.
        Here is the story.
        Like many of Disneyland Resort's best attractions, the Grizzly River Run has an extensive "backstory."
        The Story
        During California's gold rush, the Peaceful Pines River became swollen after an unusually large rainy season. The newly swollen river was not only faster and more treacherous than it had been before, but it also contained an enormous amount of gold ore from an undiscovered gold vein somewhere upstream. Miners swarmed to the area, often having violent disagreements over claims and bits of found gold. This lead to many nasty fights and mysterious night-time deaths.
        These "grizzly" deaths, combined with the river's newfound ability to carry away gold panners who were insufficiently wary of its rapids, led the once-peaceful stream to be renamed Grizzly River.
        A large company soon bought out all the prospectors and built a large gold processing mill across the river. The addition of all this machinery only increased the potential for fatal accidents, adding to the river's bloody reputation.
        The years went by, the gold panned out, and the mine was closed. Since then, the river has been rediscovered by kayakers who enjoy its rapids and like maneuvering their small craft between the remains of once-deadly mining machines.
        The Ride
        The Grizzly River Run is as exciting a ride as its backstory implies. Guests board circular rafts for a floating, spinning, water-drenching trip down Grizzly River. The ride's course is realistically decorated like California wilderness, and Imaginers specifically put no animatronic animals in view -- not because they had been told not to spend a single cent more than was necessary (as is slanderously rumored), but because no artificial creature can compete with nature's grand, low-maintenance beauty.
        The dark story behind the attraction is hinted at all through the ride. As they rush down the river, guests pass mining buildings and old machinery with suspicious stains near more dangerous workings. And even more exciting, but missed by most first-time riders, the corpses of miners who met with horrible accidents or untimely ends of more human origin can be seen in the water at five points throughout the ride. Each of these gruesome displays is completely under water, and you really have to lean out as close to the edge of the craft as possible to see them, but the horrible surprise is well worth the effort (and the additional soaking)! True Disney maniacs will notice that the half-decapitated miner who is stuck to the river bottom by a pick through his chest right at the edge of the river's final geyser is wearing a Mickey Mouse hat

          Okay, I see. This is making more sense now. Hmm, I've never heard of this before. I don't think it's true, but it would certainly be funny if it was! I'm gonna keep my eyes peeled now. Haha

            That's interesting. Never heard of that before. I never knew the attraction has a backstory. But, now I know.

            Fake realistic-looking Corpses in Disneyland? Not too family-friendly. But they are hard to notice. The bodies are much easier to see at daytime, obviously.

              Disney wouldn't do anything like that and I think this topic needs to be remove this dosen't belong on here.

                  This story is from:

                  The disclaimer at the bottom of the page is pertinent to this thread and should be read:

                    While I've never heard of these GRR "bodies", I wouldn't entirely dismiss a strategically-placed corpse in the attraction. There is one under a stairway in the Tower of Terror. I've seen it, and taken pictures of it. Disney isn't as squeaky-clean as people like to believe it is.

                    ETA: Here's the picture I took of the body @ ToT.

                              Ohhh, so I guess there's no fake dead bodies on the bottom of GRR. Wouldn't it be a tad interesting/entertaing if there were? Ha. Was that ToT pic a joke...? I'm a little slow sometimes...

                                The ToT pic is real. There actually is a "dead body" underneath one of the exit staircases.. really nice touch, in my opinion.

                                  Well, there's also that rather famous one frozen beneath the castle at the hub...
                                  Seriously, there are dead bodies as part of attractions all over Disneyland. The poor guy not able to reach the water spout only a few inches away in Snow White, the 999 spooks in The Haunted Mansion, some of which were dispatched by an axe wielding woman, all those skeletal remains on Pirates, and more over on Tom Sawyer Island. It doesn't seem too far-fetched to me.
