(Walt Disney World, 1992) A hand-crafted Splash Mountain ride vehicle concept model. Created by Walt Disney Imagineering in development of the Magic Kingdom version of the attraction, the model is constructed of hand-carved foam meticulously grooved and painted to create the impression of tree bark. The log model features a cabin with four rows of double seats that are held in place with metal pins, integral bumpers at front and back, and four sets of vertical and horizontal wheels for vehicle movement along as a flume and to grip the track for ascent. A feat of engineering, the model makes visible the special extended bow and recessed bottom of the boat. These features were carefully calibrated so that that vehicle wouldn't take on too much water as it plunges down the final hill into the underground runout, soaking riders to an uncomfortable degree. This model is almost identical to the vehicles pressed into service when the ride first opened at the Magic Kingdom in 1992. Measuring 20.25” long, 4.75” tall and 8” wide, the model is in fine condition with minimal wear.
