Thunder River Rapids review by ThemeTendo

by ThemeTendo, 5 years ago
Rated 3.5 Great as a family ride, offers a thrilling rapid experience, theming is decent and you can get wet, but don't expect to be saturated, a must-ride for any family trip to DW.

Review Criteria

Enjoyment Very Good

Effectiveness Amazing

Intensity Medium

Rider Comfort Good

Due to the nature of rapid rides, you do get knocked around quite a bit, the seats aren't the comfiest things to bump your head into either.

Pacing Very Good

Starts of 'slow' and definitely speeds up towards the end of the ride - as you'd expect travelling down a river.

Theming/Storyline Very Good

The loading area, Bill and Bawd scene in the mine, the random dinosaur and that crocodile statue - pretty decent but not amazing.

Upkeep/Presentation Amazing

Queue/Efficiency Amazing

Splash Factor Low

Weight is everything on these rides, if it's balanced, fair chance for everyone. With the water guns, there was a higher chance of getting wet.
