  • [Idea] Mist At The Bottom of Splash Mountain

    I think having mist at the bottom of Splash Mountain would be a nice touch to the attraction. The Tokyo version currently has the mist.

    Here's a picture:

    What really really need from Tokyo Disneyland's Splash Mountain is the element of the front of the logs that controls the splash which can get you soaked or stay totally dry.

      There already is. It doesn't emanate from the drop as much due to several factors, among which are humidity and the fact that the mist effect is concentrated on a view from the ride path itself.

            Tokyo's logs feature concaved bottoms and a front curvature that directs water from the front to both the sides and underneath. Japanese culture sees getting splashed as unsanitary, which is why the logs were specifically designed this way.

            Anaheim's logs are fourth-generation monstrosities that are too heavy for the original flume design. More work than on the front modulators is needed for the entire runout.

              I am not exactly sure how it works, but basically there is a bar in the front log, very hidden, very unnoticeable, but it can change it's angle throughout the day each time it comes to the station. The angle the bar is at basically decides how big the splash is. So as night comes along, and during winter, you stay virtually dry the entire ride.

                      Now if only that bar was controllable by the log "pilot" and he can decide who gets soaked and by how much (all the riders behind him totally drenched, of course), then you have something!

                        Yeah, that would be nice. Last summer I went on the ride, and got so soaked that I had to check my phone and camera to make sure they could still function normally.

                              My phone broke on that ride, after a 100+ minute wait!!! And the water was gross smelling!!! Never again will I do that ride...
