Other Information

  • This ride is a very gentle water ride. There are no elevations or special track elements besides S-Bends. The idea is to lead the track through a lot of scenery to increase its excitement rating, as seen in the picture.


  • Even though there's a parchment on top of the boats, the ride isn't considered an indoor ride.
  • This ride is called River Raft in RCT2.
  • In RCT3, the River Rafts set also includes an On-Ride Photo Section.
