PHOTOS: Splash Mountain Still Drained, Temporarily Closed for Third Day in a Row at the Magic Kingdom
Br’er Rabbit seems to be having a persistent plumbing issue at the Magic Kingdom, as Splash Mountain has failed to reopen this morning after two continuous days of downtime, following a breakdown early Sunday morning. While many Briar Patch fans are panicking over a sudden transition to the new “Princess and the Frog” re-theme, rest assured that this is merely unplanned downtime for the popular attraction, and not a sign of change… just yet.
Currently, you can see the infamous perilous drop bone dry as the attraction’s been drained for repairs.
With the humidity, there are still some lingering puddles along the track.
One of the attraction’s log ride vehicles is seen stranded along the winding track.
Cast Members at the location informed us that Splash Mountain is currently down and won’t be opening today for at least two hours.
