Looks like a fun ride, hopefully they get the monster thing working soon.

Looks very much like California Adverture's version except the ride is twice as long and has two drops. The non-working alligator is a disappointment. You can even notice the cable wires under the jaw. At least they had something to look at. There are no bears at our version.

That whirlpool effect is really cool! While I'm sure it'll be better when the alligator roars like its supposed to, I bet it will be even better. That theming is a solid 10/10

This looks very similar to Grizzly River Run, just with a different theme and a giant animatronic that isn't working. Hopefully that gets fixed before long, but either way this looks like a must ride at the park. Unfortunately, it's not quite the travel-worthy attraction I had hoped it might be, but with a working alligator I'd rank it second in the park from what I've seen (behind Pirates and ahead of Tron).

The guests seem to like it!

Looks like a fun ride especially on a hot summer day.

Just keep in mind the park hasn't "officially" opened. I don't hold a lot of hope that the animatronic will be fixed by the 16th, but at least there's a chance.

It's really hard to judge a ride like this from video, but I was disappointed in the lack of scenic along the way. Looks fairly basic. Hope it's just poor photo direction.

Gator is finally working

Pretty Nice Gator! I kind of wish they would redo Kali River Rapids with this.

Yes, I suppose they could install a gigantic alligator in the Florida parks...
