Disneyland ups Splash Mountain min. height
Disneyland has raised the height requirement for the front seat of the logs on its Splash Mountain flume ride. The ride is unique compared to Disney's other Splash Mountain rides in the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World and in Tokyo Disneyland in that it orignally opened with a traditional single-file log, where the other two rides offer side-by-side seating. A redesign of the logs would require a complete rebuild of the ride's flume, and so Disneyland changed its ride's logs to have two seats in the back row, with individual seating wells for the other rows, instead of the single bench it originally had. The park has now upped its height requirement for the front seat of the logs to 60 inches, in an attempt to quell guest complaints and get a better handle on children, who would often slide around in their single-file seats.
