Thunder River Rapids review by Santa07

by Santa07, 5 years ago
Rated 4.0 It's a fun water ride for all ages with good themeing and you get pretty wet.

Review Criteria

Enjoyment Very Good

Lots of fun splashes and jolts. You get reasonably wet.

Effectiveness Very Good

I think it was a good rapids ride with good themeing, just what I was expecting.

Intensity Medium

The rapids can be pretty jolting.

Rider Comfort Good

Sometimes the jolts you get from the rapids can knock you around a bit.

Pacing Amazing

It starts pretty tame, but it gets quite rough soon after coming out of the cave.

Theming/Storyline Very Good

Storyline isn't the best, but themeing is good.

Upkeep/Presentation Very Good

It goes underneath eureka and that part looks old, but other than that it's pretty well maintained.

Queue/Efficiency Amazing

Queues can be long because it's a popular ride but loading is quick.

Splash Factor Very High

You can get pretty wet if you're in the right seat.
