This is a fun ride, but it has a very long wait all the time. This one had a few good rapids that got riders pretty wet, but not as much as I had hoped. However, the cannons at the end were excellent as they got the whole raft wet. Its fun, but pretty short and uneventful.

Slow rapids with a horribly long line! I would pass it if the line is over twenty minutes. The ride wont get you wet. They should remove the "Youll Get Soaked!" sign in the line.

This is a good ride when you want to cool off. The fun part of the ride is when the spectators shoot cannons at you and get you wet. The ride also has nice scenery. It is a river raft ride. It is average speed, it is fun, rerideable, it has a large capacity, and a long duration.

The weakest rapids ride I have ever been on. Im sure it would be better if they could have continued using the original rafts after the 1983 accident.

If they could only get those water cannons working right again...

This is an average rapids ride at best. Its brothers at Kings Dominion and Kings Island are far better with more aqua-tunities to offer. Line can be treacherous sometimes, especially in the hot sun.

An average river rapids ride. Some new effects where added to the ride in 2002. But one major part of the ride was taken away in 2002 to, the tunnel, one of the best parts of the ride.

The worst river rapids ride I have been on. It is slow and there are very few rapids at all. The only part where I got wet was the waterfall at the end of the ride. The only thing it has going for it is the scenery.

Average, nothing special, most is the queue is under shade, so thats nice.

This is your basic raging rapids ride. If you want to have some fun, go to the observation platform , you will see some vending type machines with a button on the top, insert a quarter and you can fire several water cannons and soak the riders as they pass.

Slow and boring as far as river raft rides go. Still, a cool diversion on hot days. Usually about a 1 hour wait.
