Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom, FL, USA.Splash Mountain at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom in Florida closed on 2nd January for a three month refurbishment and is scheduled to open again on 19th March 2013.
The images below show the refurbishment of the 21 year old water ride is well under way. The ride was falling apart due to a leak in the pipes that supplied water to the live vegetation on the mountain. That's why they installed tarpaulin over the loading area last year in order to protect guests from falling debris. In addition to repairing the leak, they are also repainting it, replacing the faux rock work and refurbishing the flume including it's 53 ft (16 mtrs) drop.
