Some Disney Guests recently shared how the ride had to be shut down in yet another instance of a Splash Mountain malfunction.

Since it opened in 1989, Splash Mountain has become an iconic attraction at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort. Its subsequent upcoming closure has broken many fans’ hearts as its set to transition to a new attraction: Tiana’s Bayou Adventure.

Tiana’s Bayou Adventure is set to take over Splash Mountain by 2024. At the recent D23 Expo in Anaheim, Southern California, the company even revealed some 3-D concept models for the upcoming attraction.

What has disappointed fans in the last days of the ride is the lack of maintenance they have observed for the attraction, as well as the constant breakdowns and malfunctions that have begun to characterize the experience of the longstanding fan favorite.

And now, yet another fan has taken to social media to share another less-than-stellar experience of the Splash Mountain ride.

Disney Guest and TikTok user Mike Molinari (@mikemolinari) took to the platform to share a video of his time at Splash Mountain.

Check it out:

As viewers can note in the video, the Guests go down the hill, following which a massive amount of water splashes over the log, leaving them soaked. When a log fills with too much water, it can eventually sink, making it dangerous for riders. The ride had to come to a stop and be shut down because of the log’s malfunction.

This is just one of many instances where Splash Mountain has not functioned as supposed to. Even over at the Magic Kingdom, at the Walt Disney World Resort, the ride is reportedly in a depressingly sorry state.
