Tall tales of the Wild West come to life in this prairie outpost where cowboys and miners roam. Major attractions include Splash Mountain, a zip-a-dee-doo-dah log ride in search of Br'er Rabbit's "laughing place"; Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, a roller coaster ride through towering mesas and an unstable mine; and Country Bear Jamboree, a raucous revue of singing bears.

Beside the picturesque Rivers of America is the land of frontier America -- the old west with its boardwalks, brass-railed saloon and forest forts. Here, too, is the zaniest troupe of singing bears ever assembled, in the Country Bear Jamboree. It's real old-time music with a foot-stompin' beat. Just across the river is Tom Sawyer Island where Injun Joe's Cave, the Magnetic Mystery Mine and old Fort Sam Clemens await exploration. The Island is reached by log rafts.

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad takes guests for a wild ride on a runaway mine train. Young frontiersmen may also try their hand in Frontierland Shooting Gallery where fast-moving targets abound. The tallest peak in the Magic Kingdom, Splash Mountain, features a log-flume ride with one of the world's longest flume drops -- a five-story, 47-degree descent reaching speeds of nearly 40 mph. The attraction plunges guests into the Disney classic, "Song of the South."

 Splash Mountain 

Based on animated sequences in Walt Disney’s 1946 film “Song of the South,” the 87-foot high Splash Mountain boasts one of the world’s longest flume drops and promises guests a 40 mph descent -- faster than any other attraction in the Magic Kingdom

The attraction, which opened in summer 1992, occupies a 9.2 acre site next to Big Thunder Mountain Railroad in Frontierland. It features special effects that give the show its animated quality and heighten splashdown into the briar patch during the ride’s heart-stopping finale.
