The Falls is a continuous rushing river that also features a ride up the park’s first AquaVeyer℠ (conveyor belt lift hill) back to the beginning of the ride allowing for an endless float.

Deluge Whirlpool River – Tubers twist through a swift moving canyon wild with waves. This serpentine river also connects to The Falls offering a “choose your own adventure” never-ending water ride.
