On July 17, 1989, this link a new attraction opened to guests in Critter Country at Disneyland park — one that made a big splash. That attraction was Splash Mountain , a log ride that remains a guest favorite today. It stands 87 feet tall and drops guests five stories at a 45-degree angle. The attraction is a journey through scenes, featuring the story of Brer Rabbit, Brer Fox and Brer Bear, and ends with a thrilling splashdown. That’s the best part! No worries if you shut your eyes. A photo snaps a shot of guests reacting the moment they drop. If you don’t have a photo from splashdown with your face frozen in sheer elation, then it’s time to visit the Disneyland Resort . Trust me, it’s an experience you’ll always remember. Here’s a look back at opening day. Enjoy!
