Splash Mountain Log Sinks at Magic Kingdom for Third Time

We want you to get the most out of your ‘luxury villa’ stay in Solterra, Davenport (near Championsgate and just south of the Disney World Resort area). To help out, we have sourced the following blog post to keep you up to date with news from Walt Disney World Resort. Thanks to the guys over at Blog Mickey for the original post...

According to a video posted to social media, another Splash Mountain log has sunk at Magic Kingdom, marking the third time this has happened since August 2020. A video posted to Facebook shows a log (ride vehicle) submerged as guests try to hop out of the vehicle. The ride is still moving as guests attempt to jump out. A second log bumps into the back of the sunken log and appears to hit guests.

In this screenshot from a video posted by Ted Klein, you can see the sunken log and guests attempting to flee the vehicle.

At this point, it’s frankly unbelievable that Splash Mountain is still open and that the ride vehicles keep sinking. Maintenance on the attraction has clearly slipped to a point where it is dangerous, but Disney has kept the ride open.

Disney will eventually shut Splash Mountain down forever to turn it into Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, but hopefully the work not only includes a new theme for the ride, but an updated and safer ride experience.
