so we got out of our boat because it was sinking while we were stuck there and the disney world employee decided to tell us that we should’ve stayed in the boat but it went under as soon as we all stepped out... nice #DisneyWorld #splashmountain #MagicKingdom #disney not okay???? pic.twitter.com/15zMnP1wgX— sky💫 (@skyelaringrsoll) August 3, 2020
Disney World keeps winning, if they don't kill guests with covid they'll kill them with their rides. Skyelar Ingersoll said, "We were almost at the end of the ride. We started to notice the boat taking on water after the final drop. Towards the end, the log stopped and it got stuck. We waited for a while but the log started sinking and filling with water, it was then we jumped out. As soon as we stepped out the whole log was pretty much submerged underwater."
Despite the log going under, Disney Castmembers proceeded to act "unprofessional" according to Ingersoll. She said, "The cast member that came to evacuate us was very unprofessional and lectured us about staying in the boat, even though it clearly wasn’t safe for us to stay seated in a boat that was submerging."
The ride was allegedly experiencing problems in late July and was drained on the 26th.
