Over the weekend, some guests at Walt Disney World were forced to abandon ship when the log flume on the popular Splash Mountain ride began to sink under the water.

On Sunday, a guest who visited the Magic Kingdom shared a video of the moments after they jumped out of the log flume toward the end of the ride when they realized it was filling with water and sinking.

In a Twitter video shared by Skyelar Ingersoll, the park guest revealed that the group was reprimanded by a Disney staff member for jumping out of the sinking log.

“So we got out of our boat because it was sinking while we were stuck there, and the Disney world employee decided to tell us that we should’ve stayed in the boat, but it went under as soon as we all stepped out... nice #DisneyWorld #splashmountain #MagicKingdom #disney not okay????” she wrote.

In the video, the guests appeared to be standing on a path next to the submerged log flume and can be heard defending their decision to abandon the ride. 

However, the staff member insisted the guests could have put themselves in danger by jumping out without instructions. “I understand that, but this is a safety hazard,” she can be heard telling the group.

A fellow park guest also appeared to be upset with the employee’s behavior. “Not to mention homegirl sat there and yelled at us basically for jumping out of a sinking boat, like what were we supposed to do, sit there be like, 'we good' #WaltDisneyWorld #MagicKingdom #SplashMountain @WaltDisneyWorld @Disney @DisneyParks @DisneyParksNews,” the guest wrote in reply to Ingersoll’s tweet.

When someone tweeted at Ingersoll to ask her how the log flume sunk, she revealed that she wasn’t sure. “No idea, we just knew we had to get out quick lolol,” she replied.

Following the sinking of the Splash Mountain log flume, People reported that the ride has since reopened.
