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.

But which of these types of water rides is your favorite? I suppose that the answer might depend upon the weather when you visit a park. A rapids or log flume ride that splashes sweet relief on a hot day probably won't seem as refreshing when the weather's cool and overcast. So let's imagine that you're riding each type of ride at its ideal time and place. Which one do you pick then, if you had to choose just one more ride for the day?
