    Except for the fact that this is an OLD Urban Myth.

    There are many reasons this is suspect (other than the Urban LEGEND LEGACY), but I don`t believe it for the simple reason that in this day and age of social media there is NOTHING about it. No one talking about medical personnel at SM, no one complaining SM was closed during peak time, no CMs talking about snake wrangling, and no rumor-mongering about the new 4D effects on SM.

    When the drunk patron went nuts at ToT in Disneyland, it was EVERYWHERE. And so many anti-Mouse people would grab onto this story and run with it.

    As an aside, I agree Mel Brooks can do wonders with this, and I totally see Rick Moranis as the voice of Dark Serpent

    i think they should add rubber snakes and have them randomly fall on you while you were riding just to spice things up a bit

    The OP hasn't been around in quite a while. Guess she's enjoying all the people's replies that are actually believing this tall tale.

    If nothing else would show this was a made up tale - the strange treatment/pictures that was purported to be made. :confused3

    Snopes says this type 'story' happens in various ways at many theme parks. It just makes it's rounds every so often for the gullible.

    Thanks for the laugh! My kids (boys) and husband would LOVE this. I frequently have rubber snakes fall into the shower with me. I never should have bought the ones that look so real.

    From one of my favorite shows:

    It's like a leisurely drive around downtown.
    But it starts with a 3-mile drop straight down.
    Yeah, now keep your head and hands and feet inside the ride.
    Not a written rule, but it's strongly implied.
    (Rollercoaster, roll, rollercoaster)
    Permaneceis sentados, por favor
    Scream if you want more!
    That's right!

    Corkscrewin' 'round the interstate,
    With peanut butter and rubber snakes.
    Clear the way, move over,
    Look out, Bud! (Look out, Bud!)
    Here comes the mud!
    (Rollercoaster, roll, rollercoaster)
    (Rollercoaster, roll, rollercoaster)
    Look out!

    Right-side up and upside down!
    Don't ask me to talk,
    Can't tell a verb from a noun!
    And I'm screaming like a baby
    Who's afraid of a clown!
    I'm glad I'm wearing trousers
    That are already brown!
    It'll twist your melon,
    It'll turn your gut.
    Man, is this ride sweet or what?

    I work at the mountain and this tale is false. The most we have are dead cockroaches on the immediate ground.

    They shared a picture of his groin? At that point in the story, I decided it couldn't be true.

    OK Rebecca, this sounds SO MUCH like my story - except mine was January 2012 and the thing grabbed my arm, not my hand. I actually was starting to think we were on the same ride! My first response was to try and stand up, but you know you can't on ToT, so I screamed (along with everyone else) while grabbing it with my hand and throwing it as hard as I could without cocking my hand back. I actually thought I might have just tossed it on to someone else.

    Man, I'm glad I don't know what it was. Because it certainly didn't feel like a mouse (and I've handled quite a few of those). But it was awful grippy.
