        Cool...my daughter will love the good news! Been asking me every time we go (including last night) about Splash!

        it's what they are like in their HEART!

          They have totally new logs...

          There are now 6 seats, and the back seat can be used for larger sized person, those who need special assistance, or by a parent and a child..

          So you have a larger hourly capacity, which is a good thing with Splash....

            Some of the logs are the new configuration. I'm not sure if all of them are. Everything is nicely painted, especially the briar patch and the flourescent stuff. The sound has been much improved and most of the audioanimatronics look much better, though some could still use work (why doesn't the beehive spin on Brer Bear's nose?). The professor owl at the end is working again.

            From my experience, I think you also get much wetter.

            Today is a bit cool, but by 10am the line was 80mins long ... wonder how long it will be when it starts raining.

              The owl working again is definitely good news. It was always so depressing to see him sitting there all silent and sad.

              As for getting wetter... I'd like to know everyone's opinion on this. Personally, I love the ride, but I don't like getting wet on days where the temperature is less than 80 degrees, so I don't ride Splash as often as I'd like to ( I HATE being cold... personal issue, I know). :monkey:

              I'm wondering, what is everyone else's "soak tolerance" temperature. Do people really like to ride this one when it's cold? :confused:

                    About to head up to the DLR, and my wonderful Girlfriend

                    I will be riding Splash more than once, and you will get photos, and of course, so will other folks....

                    Just be patient.. and don't forget, it is peak Easter Break, so it will be harder to get those photos...

                    Heck, I have over 500 photos from last night preview of Deep, Deep Trouble at SeaWorld on my site, and that was less than 24 hour turnaround....

                      Not to mention, it makes things a lot more easier during Grad Night. If you know what I mean.

                          it says above that the owl is working again...does that mean that the little picture screen works as well????
                          Went to a party the other night
                          All the ladies were treating me right
                          Moving my feet to the disco beat
                          How in the world could I keep my seat
                          All of a sudden I began to change
                          I was on the dance floor acting strange
                          Flapping my arms I began to cluck
                          Look at me..I'm the disco duck

                            Glad they spruced up the sound and paint. can someone call WDW and tell them to paint inside their Splash Mt?

                              I'm just glad that owl's working again

                              now we have something the other Splash Mountains don't have

                              except Tokyo's Splash has an Owl in the que >_>

                              we should get an owl in the que and a frog on the first lift just like WDW/Tokyo

                                I was wondering that, too. The screen was in disgusting condition when the mountain wen down for refurb...

                                  Totally! It was all dirty and gross. And, actually, when I saw it, I think that Prof. Owl's beak was moving, but the sound was off. Maybe that was hallucinating/wishful thinking?

                                    I don't like getting wet either, especially on cooler days. Less than 75 degrees is too cold.

                                    That "Fatty" seat in the back is laugh. I wish they'd go back to the original configuration of three compartments that most often sat 2-2-3 or 3-2-3. The solution to the problem was just to require a minimum of 2 riders per compartment and not allow peopel to sit alone.

                                        I personally am the fan of the separate seats, especially from ages 12+ when the only person who will ride it with you is your dad. I know I'm being anal, but it can be awkward sitting in the lap of someone whom you don't have *feelings* for.
