Thunder River Rapids review by Ashley

by Ashley, 5 years ago
Rated 3.5 Overall pretty could family ride you can get quite wet, does get rough giving it a bit of a thrill rating but a perfect ride for a family

Review Criteria

Enjoyment Amazing

Great fun perfect for family to ride surprises around every corner

Effectiveness Very Good

Got quite wet and a pretty good ride so yes

Intensity Medium

Is quite rough and jerky in some spots quite un-expected but it's alright all part of the ride, rough.

Rider Comfort Good

Seats could be comfier do get uncomfortable during rough parts of the ride but other then that alright

Pacing Very Good

As the ride ends it's pretty average and rough same with the start but the rest was all filled with rapids, sprinklers etc.

Theming/Storyline Good

Alright few bits of theming pits though out the ride rocks all though it making it look like a real water way.

Upkeep/Presentation Good

A few bits here and there could do with some TLC but apart from that fine all old and rusty looking how a country style town would look

Queue/Efficiency Good

Average, moved at a descend speed not to slow for a full queue 40mins not bad.

Splash Factor Very High

Got pretty wet all depends on where you seat it's a ride of chance
