A river rapids ride, featuring characters and gags from the King Features and Fleischer Studios’ cartoon starring the spinach-guzzling sailor man. Arch-enemy Bluto is up to no good again, and there’s no escaping an underwear-soaking drenching on this water ride, where on-lookers can get in on the action by spraying you as your tub raft washes by.

Great water ride. You get soaked most of the time, it's long, the theming is great and it's just FUN.
Jack Mooney
You get soaked and you laugh at others who get soaked. Perfection! 10/10

Prepare to be soaked, and have lots of fun. There is nothing better, than riding this during one of Orlando's famous hot summer days. This is my favorite water ride at Universal and my kids will ride this over and over and over. I also love that people above can hit you with water cannons too (for a small donation of course)

Other than the somewhat lacking theme, this is the greatest water ride in Orlando. You always get soaked. This is a great family ride. 9.5/10.

Hands down, this is my very favorite river raft ride! The ride is long, it's on the rough side as a real river raft ride would be, and you will not get wet.... you will get SOAKED!

Best rapid river ride ever. The theming is beautiful and the ride is fun and has a lot of surprises. It's also long and that's a good thing. And you will get wet.

Great fun. Best rapid's ride I have ever experienced, by far. Very long, very wet, great theming, and the boatwash is a real surprize. Doesn't get any better in rapids ridedom.
