The New Splash Mountain
Penny Press Machine!


Splash Mountain Penny Press Machine


If you thought the wall of water at the bottom of the Splash Mountain was cool, wait until you see and hear this new penny press!

Not long ago this penny press machine was mentioned on the Disneyland Arcade Shop web site. Ever since, readers have asked about it, hoping for any news, even a Brier Patch rumor about this Splash Mountain penny press. Now it’s here and complete with a miniature Splash Mountain inside the machine!

Some guests have said that it’s "A machine like one you might see in a collection of unique antique arcade games". A good percentage of the guests, that voiced their opinions, appreciated the extensively themed machine. Also an "old timer" was happy to see the park bring back the Disneyland themed arcade games of the past. One person thought that it must be a part of the sprucing up of the park for the 50th Anniversary. While people admired, talked and pontificated about the machine, Boomer, just kept pressing pennies.

One thing is for sure, it’s one of those interesting arcade attractions that causes people to stop and take a look and a listen. Yes, your penny not only takes a ride through the miniature Splash Mountain inside the penny press but you hear the sounds of the happy riders aboard on their way to be pressed. So why are the riders so happy on their way to possible disaster at the bottom of the waterfall? Boomer thinks it’s a Splash Mountain thing.   Pressed Penny Smiley

This machine is located at the exit to the Splash Mountain ride. (You can access the machine just inside the exit without riding Splash Mountain if you’d like.) You can’t miss it and if there is a line at the machine, it’s worth the wait. If you are short of change, there is a change machine at Pooh Corner, just outside the exit and across the courtyard.

Hey! I almost forgot to mention. You get a terrific smashed penny souvenir too! Three to choose from, but I’ll bet you’ll want them all. They are one of the best souvenirs at Disneyland and only 50 cents!
