    My Fav ride of all time is Splash mountain - Thomas has loved it since aged 3 but Matthew has always been terrified of it - all he can see are people screaming down the last drop

    On saturday it occured to me to find an on ride video to show him all the cute animals inside

    he is now :excited: and wants to go on it first :D

    Fantastic! I know how you feel. I was the same when Maisie fell in love with BTMR! Now we do it over and over again. :D

    Make sure you take photos!

    Glad Matthew has come round to the idea - the drop is such a small part of a fantastic ride and drops always look worse than they actually are.

    I bet he wants to go straight back on :thumbsup:

    That was a good idea! :thumbsup:

    We have the ride photos from Splash Mountain each trip and they are hanging all the way up the stairwell. It's a nice cheery way to start the day, looking at them as I come downstairs. :D

    Actually I bet he has the collywobbles does go on it. comes off and says yes its great and then decid not to go on it again for a while whilst he 'digests' the experience.

    We bought some ponchos from tesco at th weekend for a pound :thumbsup: that'll save something
