Is splash mountain open? Why it was closed?
Both splash mountain and big thunder mountain rides have opened recently in August, 21. Splash Mountain was closed for almost a month. The reason splash mountain was closed was that it was undergoing some changes and transformation. The splash mountain has been be re-themed to ‘The Princess and the Frog Bayou Ride’ in both Disney World and Disneyland.
Initially, splash mountain was interrupted for about 80-90 minutes due to mechanical and maintenance issues. Further, it was closed for a month.
It also received strong criticism form varied quarters for being racially biased. It was the target of the George Floyd protests of 2020.The ride was based on the 1946 film “Song of the South” which was referred as a glossed-over portrayal of slavery.
Is Splash Mountain open at any location?
Yes, the original Splash Mountain ride is still operational at the Tokyo Disneyland. So, visitors of the Disneyland in Tokyo can still enjoy this ride and not its newer version.
The Princess and the Frog Ride
Just like its predecessor, this new ride is also a Log flume ride. It is based on the 2009 movie, The Princess and the Frog. the ride starts after the final kiss of the movie between the princess and the prince and joins them for an amazing musical ride.
