You are talking to someone who watched Splash get built, was disappointed when the opening was delayed, listened to the ride soundtrack demos, unsuccessfully tried to bribe test-riding construction workers into sneaking me on, and finally was one of the first guests on Earth to ride it.If I didn’t know any better, I’d say you never liked Splash.
And I loved it, in spite of its flaws. Pure fun. But even back then, I was surprised by the choice of source material, and I thought, “Someday, the other shoe’s gonna drop, and they’ll have to change out the story.” I’m surprised it lasted as long as it did.
I stopped riding Splash after they replaced the semi-original logs (which replaced the logs that caused the opening delay) with the new CA-Approved, moron-resistant model. The new logs turned the ride into a drench-a-thon.
