Hi Mal- Im with you we should compare notes. I think its probably Califoria Adventure. I dont like the idea of "probably" though. If its wrong then there goes the whole contest ! Im thinking about question 6 and do you think that it might be Splash mountain? I was reading the book "Inside Disney" and they referred to Splash Mountain as a 52 ft plummet with a 45 angle. Let me know what you think ! thanks- laura

The question to number 6 is....What WDW RESORT attraction do guests fall 52ft at 45
degrees doing 40 miles per hour. The optiom word I get is Resort, not park attraction
I come up with the water slide at Boardwalk, it's a wopper of a ride..So now we got
another dilema going here....I also agree it may be any of the other's So we got to
get our heads together and get this solved...Good luck to us all...

Here is some information I found about Splash Mt, It's the closest to the answer
so far...

But where there is a will there is an answer.I have just begun to
hunt..

OK--way back when in 1994, I picked up at Splash Mountain t-shirt and on the back it says:

H2O plus 45 angle plus gravity plus 40 MPH plus a 5-story plunge plus some unsuspecting, helpless "too late to get out now" passengers equals Splash Mountain

so--does anyone know if 5 stories is 52 feet?

I too am not sure about Splash Mt. What about that water ride in Blizard Beach? I remember it was close to 45 degree.....
Not sure.

Summit Plummet

but I think the angle is steeper and I know you can hit 60 mph on that one--I understand you get some serious wedgies off that slide!! :eek:

And #1 is asking "which two resorts" so you'd better answer BC/YC

Yes Mal I think your right. And the # 10 Question ...Who supplied the original voice for Mickey Mouse. I would have to answer..The Great Walt Disney himself ! laura

I think it must be Splash Mountain--although I have no idea why it got worded that way. They don't seem to be trying to make the questions real difficult!

So Walt ends up being the answer to two questions. I remember reading a bio from one of the animators (Jack Kinney--he did Goofy shorts) and he said that as a joke, they told one of the guys that Walt wasn't going to do Mickey any more, and he was the front runner for the job. So for about a week, this poor guy would do he best Mickey voice whenever Walt was around!

Now I just have to remember to return next Monday for the answer form! ;)

Thanks to everyone for responding!!
