Kali River Rapids
Good for hot days but I expected it to be longer. 7/10
With only one big drop this was not a highlight of the trip.
The last couple times I've ridden this, I have been more and more impressed. No it's not as good as Popeye at IOA, but in it's own right, it is a fun rapids ride, with a lottery as to whether you come off drenched or dry. Maybe a little more could be done with the theming but overall worth a ride
While the drop is fun and I did get reasonably wet, the theming and overall atmosphere of Kali River Rapids doesn't come close to the excellent Popeye and Bluto's Bilge Rat Barges.
It's okay... Just a bit short and don't get that wet! (6/10)
I was actually pretty disappointed by this attraction. It doesn't really hold a candle to the Grizzly River Run attraction in California..too short.
Aside from a fun drop and top notch theming (it's Disney after all) this is as average as river raft ride gets.
The Popeye ride at Universal surpasses this in all respects.
It Was closed when we went in Jan-2013
This rapids ride is pretty fun to ride. I got perfect wet on this ride. I loved it. If only they added a couple more splash effects then it would be just right.
If you've already ridden Popeye & Bluto's Bilge Rat Barges at Islands of Adventure and you're waiting in line for this one... Prepare to be disappointed.
