We’ve seen a variety of ride malfunctions in our time at the Disney World parks!
We’ve seen broken animatronics and missing ride pieces, and we’ve even seen our fair share of ride evacuations. Today, as we were walking through Frontierland, we noticed that Splash Mountain was down, and we spotted guests getting removed from the ride.
When the Cast Members arrive to unload the guests, the first thing they have to do is get the lap bar up so that the riders can get out. For Splash Mountain, they use the special T-shaped tool pictured below.
The guests were safely evacuated from the boats with the aid of the Cast Members. In this area, the sides of the canal come right up next to the boat, so it’s easy to step onto dry land.
After the guests were removed from the boat, they followed the Cast Members to the nearest exit.
We got a video of the whole process, which was incredibly efficient! It didn’t take more than a minute to get everyone out of the two boats.
