Rapids ride

Opening Date:
Apr 22, 1998

This rapids ride with a message sends guests hurtling past ancient Asian ruins and into the middle of an active logging site, where the sound of chainsaws and smell of smoke gives way to flaming tree branches before a final watery plummet meant to soak riders.

Reviews of Kali River Rapids:

One of the best themed rive rapids rides

The first pro for the Kali River Rapids ride come from its loading system that has constant movement and should keep the line moving steadily. (That does not mean that the line does not get extremely long be mid-afternoon.)

The second major pro to the Kali River Rapids in the typical Disney touch of scenery. The ride is decorated beautifully throughout its entirety. Water squirting statues, flags handing down from above and crates stacked here and there, ever inch of this ride is well themed. * There is only one river rapids ride that I would say is better themed and that is the Penquin's River ride at the old Six Flags in Kentucky.
