This was a very unique flume ride; it was completely enclosed and consisted of a nice drop, great theming, and a good portion of the ride spent going backwards.

Ya know, I want to give this an 8, but I am more like a coaster/thrill guy than an educational one. The trolls were by far the best part of the ride, and the hills give it an edge that I just cant say no too. I think its funny that such a neat ride is barely known to tourists, only those who actualy look for this. The wait is sometimes rediculous. 20 minutes for a 2 minute ride? Also, The tunnel going up the hill was pretty neat.

Kind of a thrill ride, Norwegian and good...the troll added a much needed twist. When our boat reached the end of the track I thought we were going to go down the steep waterfall in the Norway plaza but the car turned around and the drop was not as steep at all--only 25 feet. Could be compared to Pirates of the Carribean, but a bit more intense.

I was very afraid of this ride as a little kid. It has a few small drops that arent very thrilling and are barely noticeable, but then again the ride wasnt designed for thrills. It teaches you something about Norways history and can be fun depending on how you look at it.

I have always liked this ride. Its wait is sometimes a drag (theres nothing to look at besides a big ol map on the wall and a mural), but the ride itself makes up for it. The rich history, traditions, and beliefs of the Norwegians really come out on this ride. And honestly, I really feel like Im in the middle of the ocean at the end! Very powerful stuff when your imagination is in gear. Oh, and dont skip the after ride show if youve never seen it (Honestly, I skip it now that Ive seen it once, though)--It is a good watch and continues where the ride stopped in showing the pride these people have in theie country.

Pretty unique experience and very hard to find. This is the only true "ride" in World Showcase. Small children may not like it but it is still a nice ride with a unique approch.

The ride is good but two things will ruin the experience. One a long line, it has a bad crowded line and they really cater to the fast pass. 2 make sure you get through the movie since they sort of trap you after the ride. They did turn the volume down on the first part of the ride since you used to be able to hear it in the que, which would cause you to go crazy.

Short and not particulary sweet. The backwards part is O.K but nothing special. The sets and animatronics are fine but again not mind blowing. A entertaining little ride but not worth waiting a long time for. The drops are barely noticeable and the "boat over the waterfall" effect is wasted.

Cool water ride with nice effects! I like the lighting effects in the begining when your goign up. The drops arent really big or thrilling, but still nice. Its also just long enough. The backwards "drop" was pretty cool, and overall its a fun ride.
