Dad Keeps The Kids Entertained By Recreating the Magic of Splash Mountain
We love all of you Disney-loving parents that are coming up with creative ways to keep the kids entertained while at home. From recipes to DIY and more, there’s a lot of pixie dust being spread around during quarantine. A great example is the Barenz family from Salt, Lake City. They were planning a March visit to Disneyland but had to cancel plans due to the pandemic.
So instead of bringing their kids to the magic, they decided to bring the magic to their kids.
With a little ingenuity, an old diaper box, TV screen and a POV video, dad Harv managed to create a makeshift Splash Mountain right in the living room.
With his son James in his lap, dad was able to re-create all those bumps, drops and turns with his legs, to the utter delight of the kids. And at the end — when riders splash into water below, Dad even sprayed his son repeatedly with a spray bottle of water.

‘My husband had seen something like this on Reddit with just a regular roller coaster and so he decided to re-create it with Disney rides as a way to cheer us all up,’ Lara told PopSugar.
‘We all are huge Disney fans and were supposed to go to Disneyland at the beginning of the month before it shut down,’ she went on. She said this was one of a few rides her husband created while at home to keep the kids entertained!
James got to have some fun on the makeshift rides, as did their three-year-old daughter Ella and one-year-old son Thomas. ‘We’re all just doing the best we can with the circumstances given. It’s a hard time for everyone right now. However, with a little creativity and a little bit of magic you can turn a sad moment into a happy one!’
