As Russell wrote, water rides come in many different forms, from slowing moving boat rides such as It's a Small World, to underwear-drenching rapids rides such as Popeye & Bluto's Bilge-Rat Barges. Log flume rides have been theme park staples since the early 1960s, and many theme park fans enjoy visiting water parks, too, where they can zip down a variety of water slides.
