It’s heating up here at the Disneyland Resort and Disney management is scrambling to get Grizzly River Run back in working order for the busy summer season. Let’s see where things are at.
Grizzly River Run Entrance
Every conceivable entrance to Grizzly River Run is blocked by signs, scrims, tarps, and walls. The area still looks beautiful though, so make sure to stroll by and admire it anyway.
Load Station, Starting Channel, and Lift Ramp
The starting channel and load ramp for Grizzly River Run are dry-as-a-bone as construction workers scurry to and fro. Just about the only water in this area is a retention pond next to the water wheel by the load ramp.
Take a look at the rockwork and logs along the channel edge. You can really see how the textures on these themed surfaces stop just below the water level.
Splash-down & Exit Channels
Standing near Condor Flats, you can get a good view of the empty splash-down ramp and exit channel for Grizzly River Run. Make sure to check out the edge theming here as well. Also, a little further down the exit channel you can see a pipe in the floor that causes the ‘geyser eruption’ and gets you soaking wet at the end of the attraction.
Thanks for riding along with me on this construction update for Grizzly River Run. Stay tuned for more detailed reports on the rest of the Disneyland Resort and check out my other recent post about construction on New Orleans Square.
