Two sentence insider summary
Join Dudley Do-Right (of Rocky and Bullwinkle fame) on this flume ride that is like Disney’s Splash Mountain on steroids. If you do not want to get wet, this one is almost as much fun to watch as it is to ride.
3 out of 5. You will be more worried about getting wet.
The wait times for this ride and Jurassic Park River Adventure vary greatly with the weather. If it is a hot day in the summer, ride times could get up as high as 90 minutes. If it is not the summer, or if it is not particularly warm out, you may not see wait times longer than 20 minutes. On nice days try to do this one early in the morning or later in the evening.
What you wish you knew before you experienced it
YOU WILL GET SOAKED. Luckily, Universal sells ponchos and even extra socks and shorts should you need them. And they have strange human-sized dryers you can stand in for a fee.
OI fun fact
There are water cannons staged along the bridge that overlooks Ripsaw Falls. For a quarter you can blast riders with even more water. There are change machines located on the bridge too if you forget to bring coins.
