River rafting ride

Minimum height:
47 inches

A classic river rapids ride, which sees riders boarding circular, 6-person rafts that drift around a watery circuit. As with most rides of its type, the thrill comes from not knowing exactly how wet you'll get - the rotation of the raft introduces a random element.

The attraction was marred by a tragic accident in October 2016 that killed four riders.
