Polling question. How many people think splash mountain is scary ? My hubby would like me to try this be next visit. Ha ha be honest what makes it scary besides the name
At first I thought it would be...but at the time my 7 year old talked me in to it and now I LOVE IT!!! Just try it once! - Scothran  76.2 #72 9:13AM
I don't think it is scary at all. My daughter is seven and she loves it! - luvthemouse  133.4 #2783 9:17AM
Splash Mountain is not scary, unless you have a fear of getting wet. At DL it's my favorite ride! I love the characters from Song of the South and the great music. It just makes you happy! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  797.4 #3 10:40AM
Not bad at all. First time riding i was little freaked out since I've got a fear of heights and the drop looks like its straight down, but I'm glad we did it cause now its pretty fun. I think the ride is about ten minutes long but the drop is over in about two seconds so there's a lot more to the ride to see. Aaaand, when u get to the top of the mountain coming out of the tunnel, you get one of the most awesome views of Magic Kingdom - EXP626  24.2 #136 11:16AM
I am not scared of Disney coasters, but I was the first few times on Splash. I think it's the view as you come over the top and see the fall and the anticipation. So at first, I closed my eyes during that pause, so I wouldn't see it until it started going. It really isn't bad at all, but the view as you start to go over was unsettling. Then after that, it's more of a "wheeeee!" moment, rather than EEEKKK! - ally  505.9 #11 12:18PM
My 4 yr old LOVES this ride, DO IT!!! It's fun. - txdisneymomma  77.7 #70 5:58PM
Not scary!! The last drop that you see from the outside is thrilling, but not scary and happens quick!! Do it!! - mrsincredible  766.2 #6 9:19AM
Ok I will try it - 5disneylovers  770.2 #5 9:31AM
Here's a suggestion - if you hate the unknown, like I do, get on youtube and search for splash mountain and see what it's like before you ride it. If you think that'd ruin it for you, then don't watch, because many of the videos are the entire ride in action. But it helps me! - DizneyGirl  546.0 #9 9:37AM
totally NOT scary...the only thing is the drop at the end, and its not that bad...its actually fun! My family LOVED Splash Mountain!! - ncjal  200.7 #33 9:42AM
It is not every in the least! The drop is really a mild one. - girlonfire  52.6 #89 11:38AM
As long as you don't mind getting a little wet, it's a lot of fun and not scary! - Andrea84  625.3 #7 11:58AM
It's really not scary at all an so worth all details:) - tracsant  910.6 #2 12:33PM
Not scary at all and I can't do the coasters. This is one thing besides the kiddy rides I will do. Once you go you will wonder why you did not go before. If you do Malstrom then basically the same. - Pooh147856  161.8 #45 1:10PM
Very fun ride with the characters and scenery. Scary part is the drop but after 2 seconds it's done. Try it!!! - ariel116  98.3 #62 1:13PM
Not scary at all . I think you'll like it !!! - skcanfield  467.7 #12 2:18PM
Not scary at all!! It's my favorite. My motto is to try every ride at disney and then if i don't like it, then at least i know i tried it...u won't know unless you go on...then if you don't like it, then you don't have to go on ever again...but at least you did it to know...u can't go by how others feel about it unless u try it yourself...then u can form an opinion having been on it firsthand😊 i think you'll like it!! - mickeynme  150.9 #50 2:29PM
I also think you should try spaceship earth, space mountain, rock n' roller coaster, big thunder mountain railroad, and expedition everest....but let's start off with splash mountain....baby steps for u😀 You'll be loving all of those rides in no time!! Lol - mickeynme  150.9 #50 2:32PM
Our family loves splash mountain !!! Its not scary at all...just the slight water fall and its over quick ! - Staceymouse  11.1 #217 3:01PM
My mom is afraid of those rides too. But in Disney she had a blast she wanted to ride splash but it was closed. We got her on thunder mt and space mt and she loved them! So try it you'll have fun😃 - Schramke  409.9 #15 3:35PM
We went in splash once, and I will never go on it again. I didn't like it at all, and hated the last drop. - Lelundrial  439.3 #417 4:53PM
The drop has a perception of being really high and steep but once you're on it it's more slanted as you go down so it's over before you know it. Try sitting right at the back then you shouldn't get that wet and it may not seem so scary. It really is a amazing ride full of colorful characters, music, colors and yes some drops but overall... Splashtastic!!! Please go and try it. You will love it🌼 - bubbaschoice  53.8 #87 5:42PM
I promise you, you won't regret doing it! My son was so scared and when he went on it he wanted to go again and again. Its a disney original...you can't get the full experience without it*+.*+.*+. - CinderellaPrincess85  194.6 #35 6:32PM
My daughter first road this when she was 3 1/2. She was scared but tried it. It instantly became her favorite ride. She does not like fast rides like space mtn, BTM, etc. You should definitely try it. There's so much more to the ride than the big drop at the end. Remember..it can't be that bad if they didn't have safety bars before! - Disneyaddict  340.6 #600 6:47PM
