In case you missed it before, here's the official plan for Splash Mountain at DLP, composited on top of a satellite photo of Frontierland:


Thanks for that! It looks so good, I can't see what's stopping them (apart from money). How do you get out of the station though? And isn't this a Grizzly River Run forum?


The theme is better than the usual Splash Mountain Theme , nice :D!

One way they could lose the cartoon element and have the design in keeping with original designs of Disney would be to incorporate elements of the Mine Train Through Nature's Wonderland with its Living Desert and Rainbow Caverns.

This was the forerunner to Big Thunder Mountain but was more of a picturesque scenic railroad rather than a thrill ride.  It was full of animatronic animals and massive waterfalls ending in the glowing blacklit Rainbow Caverns.

I really wish they wouldn't copy Disneyland rides, they're much lower budgeted and Disneyland Paris should be able to afford much higher-quality attractions (i.e. Tower of Terror). If they were to do a rapids ride, I would rather see a version of Kali River Rapids built in Adventureland, rather than a clone of Grizzly River Run in Frontierland. Or better yet, Splash Mountain.

As for the Song of the South theme, I don't see why they wouldn't keep it; like was mentioned earlier, if people are still willing to queue up for it in the American versions, why wouldn't they in Paris?  :lol:
