The vehicle used on Splash Mountain was a long log flume, with riders sitting in pairs. We discovered the further forward you sat, the wetter you got, as the water would splash over the front of the flume.

Kali River Rapids (Animal Kingdom)
|Kali River Rapids|
The Animal Kingdom focuses on conservation quite heavily and this ride is no different as it highlights the illegal logging trade and the adverse effect it is having on the environment.
The ride begins with a short journey up a ramp before reaching the main river. Once on your way there are geysers, waterfalls with the sound of various animals and birds in the background. This tranquil setting soon changes as the sound of chainsaws drown everything out. The lush vegetation is replaced by burning wood and charred tree stumps. The ride then plunges down a steep ramp into the river below, before tossing and turning in the white water rapids.
As the ride reaches it climax you a squirted by guests using water guns as you pass underneath a wooden bridge.
Journey to Atlantis (SeaWorld)
|Journey to Atlantis|
After another short drop we got absolutely soaked, as were sat at the front of the boat. We then headed up another ramp, returning into semi darkness. As we wind our way through the tunnels the ride speeds up as it takes on a roller coaster form on wheels. Finally it plunges down into another pool and after a short while we arrive back at the start where we get out, all soggy and wet.
