Raft down the turbulent waters of the Chakranadi River through an Asian rain forest, aboard a 12-passenger raft. As to be expected on a river rapids ride, lots goes “terribly wrong,” and you end up soaking wet.

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.
To short, to boring, to ugly.
Only 1 good element doesn't make a ride.

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.

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.
