Its pretty fun (when there is nary a line) but like many have said, one person can be totally soaked and another can be bone dry. One way to know your going to get wet is if your ever going backwards down the hidden part of the river. The hidden (the part behind the trees) has 2 or 3 dips that cause a wave to flow over and through the holes in the seat backing. These waves will absolutely soak you, but anyone on the other side of the raft will only get a smattering of drops. Your socks and shoes are what this ride is after though, they are usually waterlogged by the end of the ride. There are some waterfalls that the boat never encounters (at one point I think they did) and at the end there is a heavy duty sprayer which bombards the side of the raft, riders should prepare for tiny stinging drops of water at the point. All in all its a fun little rapids ride. Dont wait in the middle of summer though, the line is obviously terrible then.

this is an dull ride if you dont get soaked, some ppl in the ride dont get wet at all, like me, but i like getting wet, the line is way too long. I had to wait about 1 1/2 hours just to get on this boring ride which i didnt even get soaked on, geez.

This ride is just like Popeye/Bluto at Islands of Adventure!(Without the multimillion dollar theming, creativity like beautiful waterfalls, and everything else!)In other words, its truly pathetic.

Its ok but wheres the theming? I have two tips for these kind of rides: 1)Go on it when its drizzling because theres no line.
2) Ride with fat ppl and itll go faster. I did that on Popeye in IOA and I got drenched.

This early model raft ride is a bit of a disappointment. The ride has several slow sections and is not as much fun as newer models at other parks. For the state of the art in raft ride design -- visit Islands of Adventure or Lake Compounce.
