I actualy really enjoyed this ride. it is a fun ride and its location is great because no one can find it. Its swinging make it far better than the Musik express at LC

APPEARANCE: The jungle theming around the ride looks cool and I like how the ride is semi-enclosed. The whole ride looks very clean and is in great shape. A side note, the ride can be hard to find though if you dont know where to look.

WAIT TIME: Walk On- Himalayas have a high capacity, and this one is no different. It also loads relatively quickly for a himalaya.

RIDE: Well, Kontiki isnt overly fast, but the swinging during the ride was outstanding and the best Ive encountered on a himalaya like this thats still in operation. Six Flags ran Kontiki for a fairly long time going forwards, but unfortunately it didnt run going backwards.

FINAL VERDICT: Thanks to it never having a line, Kontiki is worth a ride here and there, but it just isnt as good as Six Flags New Englands newer and more intense flats.

An ok ride. Not run as fast as Id like, and theres not much flipping of the cars. This set has nothing on Canobies bobs.

Quite fun flying bobs ride. Run slower than I would prefer, but fast enough to swing the cars out nicely. Unfortunately this ride does not go backwards the way it did years ago in the "Matterhorn" days, but its still fun in any case.

This is a fun ride! The cars swing practically horizontal and it moves way faster than you think it would.

I like this ride because of the way the cars tilt. Its a pretty thrilling experience. It was awesome when I was younger.

A good ride to do if your in that area and theres no line. Not one worth waiting for but the times ive been there have been a total of 0 people in line so i usually ride it once. Not the fastest so it wont give any real thrills.My major problem with it is that it seems like it does not swing out very much. When i ride it i lean my entire body in so it will swing out..needless to say it hasnt. As for running it backwards..it might help makie it more thrilling but its not needed. If only it was to swing out more it would receive a much higher rating. Increasing the speed wouldnt hurt either. Since its next to the Island Kingdom waterpark its themeing fits and contrasts the usual alpine/snow theming these rides usually have.

A standard bobing ride with a different theme. You can get a chuckle from this ride by reading the white sign for this ride (every ride has one somewhere near the enterence) I would reccomend this ride only if you have time left over after the coasters.

This is a standard "flying bobs" ride that sports an usual "tropical island" themeing. The critcisms and low ratings for this ride by coasterkev and mrceagle are not well-founded. With regard to the allegation that the ride is "slow" and is not run backwards, the flying bobs is designed by the manufacturer to run either forward or backward and the ride is about the same either direction. While it is true that Six Flags may not be running the ride as fast as some carnivals, it runs it at about standard park speed, which isnt all that slow. Also the ride is located near a kiddie-ride area and by operating the ride only forward and only at an average speed, Six Flags can offer an attraction that both adults and small kids can ride and enjoy. If it was set to "killer speed" and run backward, they would need to impose height restrictions that would not be as much in keeping with the rides location. With respect to the allegation that the themeing is out of place, the ride sits adjacent to both a "1950s" land and to the tropical island themed water park. Six Flags had to chose one theme or the other and it seems odd to criticize them for chosing to match one of those themes. Indeed, the odd thing would have been to go with the usual "alpine bob sled" themeing most parks use for this ride.
