2012 Best Attraction Tournament: Best Rapids Ride?
Written by Robert Niles
Earlier, we voted Disney's Splash Mountain as Best Flume Ride in the 2012 Theme Park Insider Tournament. Today. we're looking at another popular form of water ride, voting on Best Rapids Ride.Tweet
In another fortunate coincidence, today also happens to be the day that one of our contestants, Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure at Universal Studios Singapore, reopens after a lengthy refurbishment.
If you are unfamiliar with any of the candidates, take a look at their profile pages - linked below - for descriptions, photos and reader reviews. Or check out the campaigning in the comments. As always, we're looking not just for a fun ride, but an immersive themed experience as well. And if there's any chance of exiting a particular ride without being soaked to the bone, I think that's a big minus in this category, too. :^)
Grizzly River Run - at Disney California Adventure
Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure - at Universal Studios Singapore
Kali River Rapids - at Disney's Animal Kingdom
Popeye & Bluto's Bilge-Rat Barges - at Universal's Islands of Adventure
