This is the best Flume I have ever been on. The ride is well themed, has 3 drops that bring up the question, where is the big one I saw out front. The flow keeps you guessing. The flume ride is longer than most parks. I am sorry I did not catch the disney jokes (Zero lines) we walked right on. This is a soaker and the last drop looks like your boat/you will not clear the little building used to take you under the water level. Dont worry, you will get very wet, with several smiles to prove it.

I was surprised very much. I was expecting a ride that doesnt even match Splash Mountain, but DD is so much better. Its not the biggest, or the fastest, but it has to be one of the better flumes out there.

One terrific log flume. Fine theming (if you can dig the shameless, rimshot-inducing gags of the Dudley-DoRight... and, somewhat pathetically, I surely can ) and superb execution. Theres a few surprising twists + minor dips on the big climb, then a huge drop, which actually gets a lil bit steeper halfway down. Certain to get you wet - and isnt that the point? Inevitably invites comparisons with Splash Mountain at Disney World... Personally I thought SM had a bit better theming, but Ripsaw Falls has a better drop, and in either case theyre both really good. Note also that this has the second longest lines at IoA (after Spidey), I guess because the coasters scare some people. [brief update: while the lines are long for Ripsaw Falls, presumably because it looks less scary than Hulk or DD, I think the drop here may be bigger than the roller coasters...]

Ripsaw Falls ties with Splash Mountain as my favorite flume ride. The theming combined with the jokes, sets, art, scenery, and drops make for one great log flume! The drop in the dark is great fun and the final drop is amazing! The theming is fluent throughout the ride and really adds to the overall experience. Something that caught my attention while waiting in the queue was that the building that you enter at the bottom of the final drop literally explodes as you enter it. The walls move and the roof shakes, explaining why there is a sign near it that says "Highly Kaboomable."

One of my favorite things about Ripsaw Falls though are the jokes about Disney. At several points during the ride, Dudley or Snidely make fun of Disney. During the queue line, there are two animal heads talking on the wall and when the bear says something like, "You know, I might start a singing career. I could sing country music!", the other head replies, "Oh, whoever heard of a country bear?" On the actual ride, there is a near collision with a train, similar to a scene from Mr Toads Wild Ride. Later, Snidely is preparing to drop a boulder on Dudley. Sound a little like Snow Whites Adventures? And all throughout the queue line, there are movie posters that mock famous films, like Saw Wars, Paws, and Three Men and a Grizzly. Toward the end of the attraction, there is a scene where Snidely is behind bars and a squirrel has keys in his mouth. Anyone remember this scene from Pirates of the Caribbean?

Anyway, Dudley Do-Rights Ripsaw Falls is a wonderful log flume with great scenery and jokes that make it one incredible flume ride.

Although it broke down a lot, when I got on I was surprised. I liked how it was so well themed and they put the whole Dudley Do Right theme together. Very enjoyable but because of break downs which cause a long line, Im giving it a 9.

It was a great ride but I had to wait almost 2 hours for it since it kept breaking down. Once I got on it, it broke down and we kept getting backed up on the bottom of some lifthills and banged into some other boats.

This ride was soo awesome. Truly amazing for many reasons. 1.Great theming. 2.It was long and exciting. 3.It was one of the best endings one a water ride that i have ever experienced. This ride definately needs to be ridden if you go to the park. It is almost as good as its daddy Splash Mountain in disney world.

Finally got to ride this one last week. It is a good log ride, in which you get very wet. Has one of if not the best drop at the end of all log rides. Only thing I was a little disappointed in was the themeing could have been better. Splash Mountain is a better themed ride. Plus, I rode this ride in late March in warm Fla. weather, wrong, it was like 50 degrees and IOA was almost empty. I waited 5 minutes for Spiderman and Hulk and walked on this ride. Good for short lines, bad for riding this ride. I had to ride with a poncho on.
