The wild wet rapids was the parks biggest investment back when it was transforming into a theme park.
Set at the back of Calypso Quay climb on board the boat and take the wild ride down the rapids course, tight turns, bumpy rocks and a tunnel full of surprises! The ride has had a re-paint with some new theme for 2017 so looks the best it has in many years.
The ride is a family ride, not too intense and its a good build up ride to something like Tidal Wave.
