Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Popeye and Bluto's Bilge-Rat Barges, a flume ride in Toon Lagoon at Universal's Islands of Adventure. (The minimum height to ride is 42 inches.)
Written by Robert Niles
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.
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. - Quentin Scruggs
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! - Michelle Morgan
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. - O T
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. - Rob Pastor
Perfection in water rides. Wet, funny, and animatronics! - Anthony Murphy
