From Screamscape:

Yukendoit has posted a new video revealing two valuable secrets to visiting Tokyo Disneyland… two attractions that have “secret” and unpublished single riders lines that you have to ask for to get into them. You’ll find these on Splash Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain.


Umm.....

Granted this is a google translate from the Japanese site (which most travelers should check as well as the English one because normally the native one can be more up to date) but even the English site shows Splash Mountain using the search and Big Thunder Mountain does say single-rider on its description there.

Not sure why these are considered secret and unpublished, the Tokyo parks have some permanent single rider lines (Raging Spirits, Indy, Splash Mountain) but they do experiment with different rides and put them on the site. My favorite was still my visit in Feb/March 2012 when they had a ToT single rider line.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

yeah. . . we walked up to clearly marked queues when we were there in October, and asked for single rider passes.

what he doesn't mention is that at TDR, they ask permission from groups for you to join them tho.
on Splash Mountain it *can* take a while on Single Rider, since you are sharing a log with folks.. . tho I ended up on one ride with a rowdy group of girls who were celebrating one's birthday.

so we were a Party log, and I think they enjoyed having me as the one Tourist with them - and yes, I got into the cheering and party attitude for the drops.

Thunder Mountain is the only ride where it isn't marked by signage, but screamscape has to keep those clicks coming somehow with all the ads on the side.

Saw, heard, and loved it, in 2013. And have the soundtrack cd, too!

Glad we got to see it, if only that one time.

And if they continue the trend of Alien Swirling Saucers and Mater's Junkyard Jamboree, this is going to have a nice soundtrack with it too.
