Popeye & Bluto's Bilge-Rat Barges

at Islands of Adventure

There are tons of props here: water cannons, urns, shower fountains, and most you'd find on a common theme park raft ride; add all that to guests on "Me Ship, The Olive" squirting at you, and a few small drops, and you've got a real Colorado-River-type rapid ride! And a boat wash on a ramp? Seems mediocre, but very UN-DRY! For those who don't want their shirts wet, ponchos please! Also recommended if you remove your shoes and socks before the journey, thank you! If you have Express in hand while coping with a hot and humid day (or find the line less than 15 minutes, which could be impossible then), this is the ride for you!
