Special Announcement!

Splash Mountain will be undergoing an extensive renovation and will be rethemed as a Princess and the Frog adventure, starring Tiana herself!

Follow the adventures of Br’er Rabbit, Br’er Fox and Br’er Bear as you wind your way through Chickapin Hill.

After a short plunge (don’t worry, the drops will get much longer!), you’ll find yourself leisurely drifting by the homes of Br’er Rabbit and many of his friends. You might be lulled into thinking that this will be a relaxing boat ride, what with the critters of Chikapin Hill relaxing, fishing and singing all around you. But soon you’ll catch a glimpse of Br’er Bear and Br’er Fox, who seem to be up to no good. And if you pay attention, you’ll catch on that Br’er Rabbit might be heading for a bit of trouble.

As Br’er Rabbit, Br’er Fox and Br’er Bear get into more mischief, you’ll plunge down a couple of longer drops to find yourself in a dark, underground cavern-the Laughing Place! And it sure seems happy-turtles splashing, gophers singing…

But soon you’ll encounter two vultures ghoulishly looking down upon you as they promise to “show you a laughing place”. As you slowly climb the long, steep hill, you’ll catch one last glimpse of Br’er Rabbit as he pleads with Br’er Fox not to throw him (and you) in the briar patch.

Naturally, that’s exactly what Br’er Fox does, and soon you’ll find yourself hurtling down a final plunge of over 50 feet! If you can keep your eyes open, you’ll see that your plummeting right into the briar patch, and as a monstrous splash crashes over you, you’ll realize that you (and Br’er Rabbit) fooled Br’er Fox and are safe once again. As you dry off and relax, you’ll enjoy one final scene with Br’er Rabbit and all of his friends singing you a chorus of Zippadee-Doo-Dah. But the question is, do you think Br’er Rabbit has learned his lesson…?
