Surfrider review by Richard

by Richard, 5 years ago
Rated 2.5 Wet'n'Wild tried something pretty bold with Surfrider as a response to competition from Dreamworld's WhiteWater World. The water effects that justified this ride's existence at a water park quickly disappeared, leaving Wet'n'Wild with a fun but out of place amusement ride.

Review Criteria

Enjoyment Very Good

Enjoyable ride for what it is.

Effectiveness Average

Bring back the water cannons!

Intensity Low

A bit of spinning, a lot of height, but after the adrenaline of the first few swings it's a passive experience..

Rider Comfort Very Good

Pacing Good

Gets the balance right, which can be tricky on spinning rides like this.

Theming/Storyline

Never really themed, but the since-removed water effects gave this ride a reason to exist in a water park.

Upkeep/Presentation Average

Turns out water effects and high-tech electromagnets don't exactly mix. As it is the ride is the remnants of a once great idea.

Queue/Efficiency Good

Low capacity but still churns through more riders than most of the lower capacity slides at Wet'n'Wild.
