A little bit about Splash Mountain from Wikipedia~

Riders board eight-passenger logs, seated two by two. Logs are now equipped with lap bars for safety reasons following a January 2011 renovation. The log departs the loading area, where Br’er Frog provides introductory narration. The log ascends a dual-chain lift that deposits riders in a small pond at the bottom of the big drop. After a right turn, logs enter the barn and climb another lift to the space behind the visible mountain, before floating gently through scenery designed to evoke the feeling of a river in the Southern United States, particularly Georgia, where Song of the South was based. The homes of the three main characters, aged farm equipment, stagecoach wagons, and ale barrels are incorporated into the landscape, along with a country instrumental version of “How Do You Do?” emanating from hidden speakers along the waterway. After passing Br’er Bear’s cave, the logs descend down the Slippin’ Falls drop and cross back under the flume. The logs then enter the show building containing the indoor portion of the attraction, where various Audio-Animatronic animals including geese and frogs sing the attraction’s first musical number, “How Do You Do?”. Several vignettes establish the story of a restless Br’er Rabbit leaving home and being pursued by Br’er Fox and Br’er Bear.

Br’er Fox and Br’er Bear see Br’er Rabbit telling Mr. Bluebird that he’s going to his Laughing Place. Br’er Porcupine warns him of the danger ahead, but Br’er Rabbit continues on. “Everybody’s Got a Laughing Place” begins to play after Br’er Bear springs Br’er Fox’s rabbit trap. The logs continue onward past a roadrunner who asks to be taken along to the Laughin’ Place, while opossums sing the song from overhead. The logs reach a dark tunnel followed by a “dip-drop” into the Laughin’ Place. Bees attack Br’er Bear while Br’er Rabbit laughs with joy, unaware that Br’er Fox is behind him, preparing to drop a beehive on top of him. The logs then go over another short drop, and head further into the cavern scenes. There, geyser-riding turtles and laughing, singing bullfrogs, and dancing water fountains guide the log to a dark area in which Br’er Rabbit has been caught by Br’er Fox in a cave of stalactites and stalagmites. Two vultures (this time wearing top hats) taunt riders as they begin their ascent up the final lift. A scene to the left side of the flume shows Br’er Fox menacing Br’er Rabbit, with Bre’r Rabbit pleading not to be thrown into the briar patch.

At the top of this third lift hill, the log descends the 50-foot (15 m) drop at a 45 degree angle, reaching a maximum speed of 40 mph,[5] into a tunnel underneath the Frontierland walkway. After another outdoor flume segment, the log coasts back into the mountain, where critters at “Doo Dah Landing” are singing “Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah” in celebration of Br’er Rabbit’s return, while Br’er Fox and Br’er Bear attempt to fend off Br’er Gator. At the end, Br’er Rabbit sings with Mr. Bluebird, telling guests that he learned his lesson. After exiting the log, riders can tap their cards or MagicBands to save their ride photo.
