Plunge into the briar patch at this classic Walt Disney World ride.
Board your log flume and prepare to get wet as you enter the world of Br’er Rabbit, Br’er Fox, and Br’er Bear. Flumes wind through animatronic depictions of Br’er Rabbit’s adventures set throughout the mountain. In-between the story segments, the riders will experience a series of drops of varying heights and intensities. This all culminates in the main 52.5 foot drop as Br’er Rabbit tries to make his daring escape.
