What goes up is sure to come down, a penny lost is…well, a penny lost. The Splash Mountain Pressed Penny Machine has been removed from its location at Disneyland Park.
Splash Mountain Pressed Penny Machine at Disneyland Removed
We noticed the Splash Mountain pressed penny machine was missing from its usual location just outside of Teddi Barra’s Swingin’ Arcade.
A parkgoer temporarily parked their stroller in the space where the machine used to stand.
The other machines have not been adjusted to fill the now-vacant space between them where the Splash Mountain penny machine once stood. The machine was in place a few days ago, as pictured below.
We took these photos on earlier visits, some just a few days ago, of the now-removed Splash Mountain penny machine for comparison.
The Fuel Rod and 100 Acre Woods Penny Machine are still here and operational.
How do you feel about the removal of the Splash Mountain penny machine? Let us know in the comments.
Four months after its Floridian counterpart closed, the original Splash Mountain at Disneyland has officially taken its last plunge into the Briar Patch. The flume ride will be turned into Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, expected to open next year.

Watch our POV video of Splash Mountain at Disneyland taken the day before it closed.
Additionally, we have a video look at the events of the final evening before it closed. You can also keep reading for photos and descriptions.
Guests at this point started to notice more park security gathering near the attraction. Just before 5:30 p.m., the single rider line closed for good.
Wait times reached 260 minutes, around 4 hours and 10 minutes, at around 6:45 p.m.
Imagineers like Tony Baxter and Tom K. Morris gathered at the park to say their goodbyes as well.
The lines never let up, and stayed long for the rest of the night.
The wait was at its peak of 260 minutes, 4 hours and 20 minutes, just before the line closed forever at 10:00p.m. At that point, it disappeared off the app and guests were no longer allowed to queue.
At 12:30 a.m., the barn doors shut for good, bringing an end to nearly 33 years of satisfactual splashing. With Walt Disney World’s version having closed in January, guests can only experience Splash Mountain at Tokyo Disneyland.
