    It's crazy how different wait times can be on different days or even certain times during the day.

    I always try to go to our local park when it's a very cloudy day.. but I hate when other people have the same idea ;)

    The problem with the posted signs are that they are rarely correct. One evening I decided that I was going to be clever and ride the mine train during the MSEP. I got to the entrance and it was still reading 70 minutes. I decided that if I was going to get to ride it I would just have to grit my teeth and get in line. I entered the line and walked non-stop to the ride (which was quite a few minutes in itself). I rode it and left and a total of 20 minutes had passed from the time I entered the queue to the time I left on the other end. Sometimes it works in your favor and, by god, I was clever indeed. Who knew?

    Not what I thought :( I was so sure that it was going to be a drop track!!!

    We pull in, total darkness.. lights flicker and we move up to a room full of relics.. then, after sitting still in the shed lights flickering, some kind of giant monster shows up and screams...on a big screen on the wall in front of us.

    When we moved again-
    My kid yelled "What?! THAT'S WHAT'S IN THE SHED???!!. THAT'S IT?!"
    Everyone in front and behind us cracked up laughing.

    Poor kid has been waiting to find out what's in the shed ever since the live announcement.lol

    Very anticlimactic after so much build up.. not bad, just probably didn't warrant a year long hash tag hype up. Lol
    The ride is fun though and the theme and story were great.


    I just found this on YouTube. This was Thursday.. if you donated a minimum of $100 per person to Andy Dalton's foundation you could be eligible to be one of the first riders...special event at the park. I considered it a few months ago, then realized that people were bidding $1,000 per person. Too rich for my blood, so I decided we'd go on pass Preview night instead.lol.

    We were on after midnight, so in total darkness during the ride. I haven't been on during daylight, and probably will just stuck to nights. That's our favorite time.

    That was myself and My brother too. He had driven just the two of us for my 16th b-day from Seattle to Disney in his mustang. He had never been on Splash Mountain before and had been here several more times. I volunteered to wait. Man it was hot, there was a drinking fountain at some point in the que and the line went to that and back to the que. The ride kept breaking down. We ended up watching Fantasmic from the que. Got all the way up to the boarding area. My brother thought he was finally going to get to ride it. Broke down again, and this time, Disney closed it down for good, IE down for a couple of days of maintenance.. My brother was soooo, bummed. I brought it up to the CM it was my B-day, had waited 3+ hours for my Bro to ride. We were not returning for another day. Back then you would get a return ticket, but they told us to use on another ride if we wanted.

    Just a hair over two hours, for the HULK, on the day that it re-opened.

    Omg I'll never forget it...

    When I was a kid circa 1995 we waited 2 hours inside that hot and grungy subway queue of Universal's old King Kong ride. Let's just say it was ridiculous. But such a fun ride. I miss it!

    Longest? Forbidden Journey.. with around 2 hours.
    The line was out of the Castle and making chaos in the lockers area.

    This was in early January at Universal Studios (very close to new year's)
    Ironic, because that date was declared "green" in the usual park load levels for IOA.

    Gringotts was 1 hour and half then.
