What Happened To River Country
Welcome to DisneyCentral!
Disney announced the permanent closing of River Country in early 2005. There are a lot of rumors as to why it closed but from the looks of the current condition of the park it’s gone for good.
When I went to BBQ I talked to a CM. They said it was closed because there was too much bacteria build up, so they had to empty the entire lake to clean twice a year minimum. THey are working on possible ways to reconstruct and have an easier way to maintain, but no plans in the near future.
I talked to a former cast member and they said the same thing.
