This ride is well set up along the side of the hill. The layout is great and the ride enjoyable. The lift at the beginning creates a better feel of riding rapids through the wilderness. The rides stays fairly active through out, only giving up at the very end. the only down fall with this Rapids ride is it doesnt get you very wet. There are, or when I rode, no water falls but a Sprayer attached to on of the rocks. you mostly really upon the rapids splashing onto the boat.

This ride is well-landscaped, got some good rapids and is pretty long considering its not in a huge theme park, but theres no guarantee youll get drenched except for your butt cuz the seats are always wet. If they kept the water level a little higher more ppl would get soaked.

I got wet, but not nearly as wet as the people across from me. I was hoping for a good drop or some big excitement though. Great way to cool off.

A really great rapids ride, on the top tier of the genre. We took two rounds on it - the first time my legs got drenched, and the second took care of the top half! Its relatively simple in layout, but gets the job done. Oh, and yes - its great fun.

Fantastic! The best raft ride in America. There are 6 or 7 rapids that get the leading side of the raft very wet. As it spins, there is a good chance that everone will get drenched at least once. The rafts have a solid floor with a main drain which mean you do not have to sit in standing water the whole ride. The ride doesnt need theming because it captures the &quot.boulder&quot. look of this side of the park extremely well. It seems to appeal to all ages.

You dont realize how wet water really is until the side of the raft you are sitting in passes directly under a waterfall. The best way to enjoy this terrific ride is to go in a large group, sit back, and laugh at each other as the waves and water seem to single out a rider or two. Depending on where you sit you may escape unscathed or have to be mopped out of the raft soaked to the bone!

The scenery of this ride is great with the valley and real forest around it. You also get completly drenched on this ride, especially if you get hit by the last wave. Overall its a great thrill for a water ride with the boat dipping in and out of the "drops" and the boat always spinning. Also the staff really keeps the lines moving well trying to fill every boat the best they can. So if your a single rider and you pay attention you can really move through a long line quickly.

This is a very nicely placed river rapids ride. Its just a few rapids here and there but I somehow managed to get myself soaked. A fun ride to go on if you get hot. No line of course.

pretty good rapids ride but its out of the way, too short and no waterfalls. i still got soaked but some more effects and length would have made this alot better

A solid rafting ride - no complaints about the soak factor (very wet). The length and speed were good, and the setting in the park is pretty - youre surrounded by an actual gorge, with big boulder outcroppings. About the only thing it lacked was one socko area like a significant drop - but it had good tossin, turnin and splashing throughout.
