Tanganyika Tidal Wave takes guests on a leisurely cruise down an exotic African river outfitted with beautiful flora, cave paintings and villages. The relaxing trip turns into an adrenaline rush when the boat plummets down a 55-foot drop into a lagoon and drenches its excited riders. The deluge also creates a giant wave that engulfs onlookers standing on a bridge over the rushing water.

This ride it's booooooooooooring the theme stinks the only good part it's when you get soaked.4/10 - Giovanny Cruz

This is a classic "Im drenched with water" kind of ride but is nothing beyond that. The boat moves extremly slow and just ends with an average drop/splash. If the wait is too long (which it never is) just stand on the bridge and get soaked anyways. A fair 6/10. - Jose Vazquez
