Raging Rapids Swissvale Reviews
A Great Water Ride Jul 27, 2007
The best water rides strive to get passengers soaked without drowning them. Raging Rapids succeeds admirably in this goal. Six-person rafts bump along a river complete with water guns (manned by on-lookers), geysers along the shore, a wide waterfall, and obviously, rapids. Vegetation along the waterway separates passengers from the busy amusement park atmosphere.
The loading platform is a revolving circle so stepping back on solid ground after a journey can be amusing.
Beware: the first time we rode this (we rode it two times in a row because there was no point in pretending we were dry anymore), our raft experienced a sharp jolt at the end when we connected with the conveyor belt. Even though I was strapped in, I still slid quite a bit in my seat.
