Warning! You WILL get wet! The Ripsaw Falls is an excellent ride with lots of dips, drops, and things to laugh at! One of the best rides at Islands of Adventure.
The theming may be a little weak, but the ride itself is great! Best flume ride I've ever been on, from a drop, speed, surprises point of view. - tom bagnell
Every time I tryed this ride it was shut down. But on my most recent trip to IOA I rode it. The main ride was a bad copy of SM at magic kingdom but the drop was awesome. 5/10 - Jaiden Cohen
This is an awful ride that ones was ok but because of the changes of the ride vehicles the whole experience is ruined. It's horrible to get in and out of the vehicles and they lock you so tight in there you don't even feel the final drop what used to be the highlight of this ride. - O T
Outstanding flume ride. Exciting, funny, adventurous and wet wet wet. The Dudley Do Right theming is a howl. We love this attraction and ride it numerous times along with Jurassic Park River Adventures and Popeye/Blutos Bilge Rat Barges, the trifecta of theme park water rides. - Rob Pastor
Though there's almost no story that last drop is wicked. - Jeff Moon
Beautiful facade. Dudley Do-Right's Ripsaw Falls tells a generic story about a damsel in distress, but with a lot of humor along the way. The final drop is amazing. My only gripe is that some show scenes or tunnels look incomplete and rushed. - Bryce McGibeny
Another great ride at IOA, Splash Mountain is better themed but this one have a better final drop. Love it. - David Shaul
This brought back so many great memories of watching Dudley Do-Right and Rocky and Bullwinkle reruns on Saturday mornings as a kid. Great theming, a nice long ride with a great buildup, and a really nice double-plunge at the end. Love the "curtain of water" set-up on the way back up the hill... - Jonah Sirota
This is my favorite ride in the park! The theme is pretty good and contains some very funny props and story telling. The drops are incredible, especially the last drop. You also get some great views of the wizarding world and some of the roller coasters in the parks. 10/10 - Alex Johnson
Weak story and some janky theming, but the final drop is one of the best ever for a flume. - Josh Pearson
I wasn't able to give it a below average review because I've never actually ridden it. From the outside it looks like a blast and i'm sure it is. I've waited in line for this ride three times and every time I do...the ride gets shut down due to rain. But i will make it a goal to ride this ride! - Michelle Kowalski
