Just to let you know, Rye Playland's The Old Mill in New York is a water based dark ride. Also Six Flags Over Georgia had one in the 70s with The Okefenokee Swamp.

Thanks for these updates. I hope one day I'm able to visit these great-looking parks but for now reading these reports will do. Looking forward to the DisneySea week.

Thanks for all these photo heavy trip reports, Robert. I for one have enjoyed them immensely.

Just an FYI: If you are ever in the Dallas/Ft. Worth/Arlington area, check out Six Flags Over Texas' Yosemite Sam and the Gold River Adventure (YSATGRA). It, like the Madagascar ride you reviewed, is a slow moving water dark ride and, more importantly, an unexpected, hidden treasure. I was impressed by the attention to both detail and story that this experience offers (especially considering my general disdain for anything SF related) . While YSATGRA is definitely a Disney-on-a-budget attraction, it is very well imagined and maintained, and should not be missed by any true theme park fan.
